Over the last few years, the “bucket list” trend — whereby you create a list of places you want to see before you “kick the bucket” — has really taken off. However, it seems that all bucket lists are the same when it comes to travel. The Pyramids, Taj Mahal, the Great Wall of China — everyone wants to see and do the same things. In a world of billions of people and thousands of years of history, there is so much more to see than these few highlights.
In this article, we’ll point out a few of the most unique and unusual places you can visit, helping you to spice up your bucket list.
Spend the Night at a Love Hotel
Located throughout Japan, Taiwan, and Korea, love hotels are hotels designed for couples, and with one thing in mind. These hotels have had a bad reputation lately and many towns and cities are trying to get them banned; however, it’s not all bad news and it’s definitely not seedy. In fact, you’ll find some of the best and most luxurious accommodations in love hotels, with themed rooms that can cater to couples with a variety of tastes.
You might have seen the story of the Batman themed room (pictured), where people pay a small premium to stay in a Taipei hotel room that has been kitted-out like a bat-cave. If you did see it, you probably thought about taking a flight to Taipei to book yourself a night in the room, but what you might not have known, and what many of the viral articles discussing this room omitted, is that it is located inside a love hotel.
