Sun, Sea and Space? : Top 5 Unusual Holiday Destinations

 

Where on (or off) Earth can you find a crazy holiday? Now that we’ve had a whole two generations since the start of the 70s jet-setter revolution and the package holiday putsch holiday makers are starting to really push the boat, plane and spacecraft out. Here are the five wackiest things that constitute a trendy holiday in this strange, post-concord world.

Japan’s Love Hotels

You may have recently read Vice’s recent culture-shock expose or Japan’s love hotels. While using a hotel for sex by no means something Japan has a (£25bn) monopoly on, nowhere else can rival the fantastical, make-belief commitment of Japan’s love-hotel owners, who fully immerse their clients in a fantasy world of their choice for a per-hour fee, be it Disney character themes or a room designed like the Lunar Lander. With over 37,000 locations to choose from, here’s an incredible directory to find out more.

Virgin Galactic

When the package holiday was invented, the only people in space were Ziggy Stardust’s backing band. Now, thanks to Richard Branson, you can take the ultimate sci-fi tourist trip. For a mere quarter of a million US dollars, you will receive centrifuge training, free-fall test flights and an ever-growing number of hospitality events hosted by Branson at the kind of exclusive, luxury locations only the man himself could afford to choose.

After all this, you will get catapulted into space, and become among the hundreds of humans to ever escape our Earthly bounds. With over 700 people signed up already, click here to take your seat alongside Professor Stephen Hawking and Angelina Jolie in March 2015.

 

Waldorf Astoria, Palm Jumeirah

Waldorf Astoria has built a hotel on the man-made island of Palm Jumeirah in Dubai. The island stretches five kilometres into the warm waters of the Persian Gulf, making it the perfect place to stay when visiting a city known for its splendid luxury. Being a 5-star hotel of course, the Waldorf Astoria’s unique artificial location offers a fabulous perspective of Dubai, at once both near-by and yet set apart from the city in an exclusive reserve of taste and luxury.

With tennis courts, private, artificial white-sand beaches, water sports and amazing views of Dubai’s sky-line, why stay anywhere else when visiting? Trust Dubai specialist’s letsgo2 to offer you the best deals on these luxury rooms.

Incursion tunnels of the Korea Militarised Zone

Originally just another of North Korea’s many overtly aggressive and damaging pieces of foreign policy, the illegal tunnels that North Korea built in order to breach the demilitarised zone between its own land and that of neighbour South Korea are now tourist attractions, able to be visited by South Koreas tourists. Check out this video of urban explorers stealing through the darkness and see whether it’s something you dare to do next time you’re around the 38th Parallel.

 

Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort

If you are a fan of pioneering design and opulent luxury, you should consider a trip to China’s famous horse-shoe shaped hotel in Zhejiang. Based by the water, and fully lit-up at night, the hotel is absolutely stunning. It features a hot spring, mystical spa, indoor gym and massage therapy centre. The iconic design is a statement of China trying to corner the luxury hotel market.
