Hands-down, this was probably one of the most amazing experiences of my life.

PRIMROSE SANDS, TASMANIA  Preservation Bay, on the northwest coast of Tasmania, is a hot spot for catching this magical phenomenon.

Interactive aquarium full of bioluminescent plankton called dinoflaggelates ("dinos"). The plankton illuminates the dinosaur-shaped environment when you gently shake it. Just let them bask in indirect light during the day, and they'll treat you to a soft blue light show at night.
