Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon

Iceland is full of destinations that one simply cannot pronounce. We will share the struggle activity that we conducted in our office, which was about pronouncing Icelandic attractions.

Although, Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon is today's pick. It is a popular and a spectacular glacial lagoon. Located in the borders of Vatnajökull National Park in southeastern Iceland. Decorated with icebergs coming from the surrounding Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier becoming a part of larger Vatnajökull Glacier. Now try reading that!

Äteritsiputeritsipuolilautatsijänkä

Äteritsiputeritsipuolilautatsijänkä located in the Finnish Lapland is known for being the longest place name in Finland. Not a surprise if it is one of the most difficult to pronounce too! Also, it was popular for being the home to a pub which flaunted the longest commercial name for a business in Finland! Although, it closed down! Maybe because no one could say it out nor recommend it! "Hey, Guys! Did you hear about this new cool place? There's this cool pub in Asterputinjnnfnvnenbbkw... bleh!"

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch

Now try that out! How far did you even make it? Apparently, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is a village located in the region of North Wales of Anglesey. If you have to translate the entire name, it will be a self explanatory statement! The meaning of the name goes like “the church of St. Mary in the hollow of white hazel trees near the rapid whirlpool by St. Tysilio's of the red cave.” Who does that? Entire address in the name? Try naming yourself that way!

Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotam- ateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu

Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu is a Maori-named town on the North Island of New Zealand. It is, without a doubt, known for being one of the longest most unpronounceable names in the world! To save us all and with all mercy, it is better known as Taumata. One thing for sure, the people of the town must be having the time of their lives when asked where are you from!

5 / 5

Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahinthara Ayuthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Piman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit

If you are bamboozled with that entire name, then brace the Lord, because you are about to be mind-blown. The lesser known fact about this extraordinarily elongated name of the destination is that it is one of the most popular tourist destinations. And, it has or still is in your list. This eternally long name is another name of BANGKOK! If you've been there, try naming it this way, people will believe you covered numerous cities in your trip.
