Palau, Micronesia: Swim With Jellyfish

Finding Nemo fans, take note: there is a way to realize your dreams of swimming with jellyfish–without getting stung by one like Dory did

Palau, a beautiful Micronesian island, boasts 5 marine lakes that used to be connected to the Pacific Ocean. When the sea level dropped, however, the jellyfish no longer needed to defend themselves from predators, eventually losing their sting (at least to the point where humans can’t feel it). The result? Lakes teeming with beautiful golden jellyfish–that you can dive right into.
