Traveling to a completely new destination and exploring the people and landscape is always exiting. Of course, the accommodations you choose have a tremendous impact on your adventure. Staying in a hut somewhere out in the middle of the Serengeti will give your vacation a much different flavor than staying at a 5-star luxury resort. The whole point of taking a journey so that you can experience different culture and stay in different accommodations and learn new and interesting stuff over there. Here are few weirdest (and coolest) hotels on the planet.
At first glance you may think, “Oh, how charming, they made this hotel to look exactly like a sand castle.” But you’d be wrong. It actually is made from sand. In fact, the Zand hotels are the world’s first hotels to be constructed out of sand. These temporary hotels were inspired by the temporary ice hotels of Sweden and Finland.
For some of us, adventure means throwing caution the wind and taking an aspirin with a tall glass of tap water in Mexico. Other travelers are true adrenaline junkies who need a fix even while they’re sleeping. If you require adventure even during REM, head to Peru where you can sleep in a clear capsule suspended off the side of a cliff. If you’re a sleepwalker, it may not be the best idea.
These forts were built way back in 1867 to repel the French navy and are located off the south coast of England. Today, travelers can stay in one and enjoy peace and quiet along with plunge pools, saunas and wine-tasting rooms.
Who doesn’t LOVE pandas? Answer: no one. Everyone loves panda bears and if you don’t something is seriously wrong with you because they are incredibly cute. If you happen to REALLY love them then you’d most likely be happy staying at the Panda Hotel in China where everything, and we mean EVERYTHING is panda-themed.
If you like the idea of staying in transparent accommodations but don’t like the idea of being suspended off the side of a cliff in Peru, then head to France where you can stay in transparent bubbles out in the middle of the forest. Hotel guests will be treated to spectacular night skies. And the other cool thing is these bubbles are made from recycled materials.
