Hôtel de Glace - Ice Hotel (Québec/ Canada)



America’s only ice hotel - the Hôtel de Glace - is a mere 10 mins from downtown Quebec. The hotel's 36 rooms & theme suites are all created from ice and snow. It also features an ice bar, a cafe, a wedding chapel and a giant ice slide.

Over a 6 week period the hotel gets erected every year with construction beginning in early December using snow blowers and metal molds which are later removed.
The thick snow walls keep the temperature inside between -3°C and -5°C and arctic sleeping bags are provided to keep you warm as you go to sleep. They resist temperatures as low as -30°C so you're sure gonna be toasty.

The Haunted Hotel at the Tequendama Falls (San Antonio del Tequendama/ Colombia)



The abandoned Hotel del Salto has stunning views overlooking the Tequendama Falls on the Bogotá River. It was built as a mansion in 1923 and later on used as a hotel for wealthy travellers but closed down in the 90s because contamination in the river made tourists scarce. The spot was used by people in the past to commit suicide which gives the place a haunted feel.
It lay abandoned until recently when the Institute of Natural Sciences of the National University of Colombia and the Ecological Farm Foundation of Porvenir renovated & converted the hotel into a museum.

Jodphur - The Blue City (Jodphur/ India)



The old city of Jodphur sure stands out in the Thar Desert. It is painted in vibrant shades of blue.
Background stories behind the blue paint vary. Some say the houses were painted blue to indicate the homes of the upper-caste Brahmins, but others say the houses were actually painted white to begin with, but the buildings turned blue after copper sulphate was added to white lime in an attempt to deter nesting termites.
