15. Woodland Mansion with a Village 1208416085

A castle awaiting its king

  • Amazing rare gear awaits you inside the mansion. After you’ve collected it and defeated the mobs, move in if you want to live like a king.
  • The village at the foot of the mansion is full of friendly villagers and great resources.
  • Don’t forget to visit the abandoned Nether portal and Illager tower on your way to the mansion.

Whoops!

What is awesome about this seed:

  • Test your resourcefulness! Only the bare minimum is available, so waste not.

13. Mushroom Island 64093444 (chill)

There's something wrong with these cows...

  • The shipwreck contains just tons of valuable loot! Aside from emeralds, items, and food, you’ll find…
  • ...A map for buried treasure! Who doesn’t love a treasure hunt?

9. Smallest Island Ever -3115927715480771327

I spy with my little eye...

What is awesome about this seed:

  • The challenge of living on a tiny island presents great obstacles for you to overcome.
  • A house built on stilts (or, stilt) would fit on the island, but that’s about it. If you’ve ever wanted to live on a private island, you’ll find solitude aplenty here.

What is awesome about this seed:

  • A monster spawner inside the dungeon is waiting to be defeated. 
  • There are at least three villages within close range, one of which is populated entirely by zombies.

5. Bamboo Forest with Pandas 1959330209

One of the few places to find pandas in the wild

Aww, who doesn’t love pandas? Just like in the real world, Minecraft pandas are very rare. If you’d like to see one up close, spawn in this dense bamboo forest. A great jungle biome borders the bamboo forest, so you won’t be lacking for resources if you decide to settle down here.

What is awesome about this seed:

  • Pandas are friendly mobs that don’t do much of anything except look adorable. You can breed them to make your very own panda zoo.
