We couldn’t ask for anything better to break up the monotony of a slow news day than the announcement of a Ping-Pong Paddle Hotel.
The hotel is being constructed in the city of Huainan, China as part of a $45.8 million sports complex which will have a main stadium shaped like an American football and smaller facilities shaped like a basketball, volleyball and a soccer ball.
But the pinnacle of this complex will no doubt be the Ping Pong Paddle Hotel.

Ice Hotel Canada
While the idea of an ice hotel is not new, it seems like this unique idea is really starting to catch on, considering the fact that the hotel was rebuilt each and every year since the year 2000. Because the hotel is build entirely out of snow and ice the hotel is only opened to the public from the first week of January until the last week of March.
Hydropolis Underwater Hotel Dubai
While all of us imagined how it would be like to live underwater, most of us never actually thought that we would actually get to experience ourselves. However, a trip to Dubai, one of the seven Emirates in the United Arab Emirates, known for its opulence can easily make this dream come true. Situated on an artificial island 66 feet( 20 meters) below the Persian Gulf and covering a 260 hectares area, this incredible resort is still under construction. Like the rest of the hotels from Dubai, this hotel is certainly going to be one of the most amazing hotels of the world.
