16 Mysterious Road in Jeju City, South Korea

At this signpost, put your car in neutral and take your foot off the brake. Then giggle in amazement as your vehicle slowly travels uphill for over 300 feet. The same phenomenon happens with a bottle or when you pour liquid on the street. They all seem to defy gravity by moving in the wrong direction. These are the curious acts performed by the Mysterious Road or, as the locals call it, Dokkaebi Road. It is actually an optical illusion. The road has a three degree slant but appears to go up because of the elevated surroundings. Hopefully, this explanation does not spoil your amazement.
