Which of these places would you like to spend the night.....or have you already stayed there?
Is there a place on this list that would make you consider planning your next trip around it?

Ooooo it's the underwater one or the ice hotels for me! and who ever thought a sewer pipe could look so cosy? Reply to this

The ice hotel is first on my list. Can't wait to go there! Chris and Nikki made it look wonderful.

For me, it's the glass igloo for a great view of the Northern Lights.

Then the cave hotel, monastery and tree house. Reply to this

The question for me would probably be, which would I not stay at. I would usually stay just about anywhere, for a night.

1. Yes, I would sleep in the prion, as long as they let me out in the morning.

There is a prison in Ljubiana, Slovania that has been converted into a hostel too. I didnt stay at it, because there was another hostel in a better location(right beside the river) in the city centre.

2. Id stay in the underwater place, even though sleeping underwater would make me slightly nervous. ie What if it leaks and I never wake up.

3. The Sewer pipe - no problem, as long as it is clean, and doesnt cost too much. I wouldnt pay much for it, because sewer pipes should be cheap places to stay. 😉

4. The Finland one is great, especially since I would love to see the Norther lights. In a see through tent seems warmer than lying on the grass outside.

5. I would certainly stay on that peaceful floating island in Sweden, and I would love to visit Sweden too.

6. Id certainly stay at the ice hotel, if Chris reassures me it is warm.

7. Yeah, for sure, if I have the budget for it.

8. My boyfriend is always amused when I want to stay in a windmill, or go into a windmill cafe or restaruant. His grandpa was a real Dutch miller who owned a working windmill. That windmill is now state owned, because they are expensive to upkeep.

Your point is well taken and I agree with your answers.
I like the idea of the tree house and windmill-- but all are interesting.

I like the idea of the tree house...

I have seen tree houses you can stay in, in Thailand. I think, most are in the jungle, but maybe other places too. Khao Sok is a place with them in Thailand that comes to mind. 😊 Reply to this

All are nice but Jules’ Undersea Lodge, United States is looking quite amazing to stay in. Wish to stay there some day... Reply to this

The Millhouse sounds like a wonderful place to stay. I may have to look into that at some point.

Hey guys, can't believe I have only seen this thread, I blame decorating our new place for taking away valuable time I could be spending on TB. The Ice Hotel was awesome. I had a great sleep in the Ice room, in fact I was quite hot...at first anyway. Nikki didn't sleep too well though, so I guess it's down to the individual. I would highly recommend a visit to the Ice Hotel I'd rate it up there with my top experiences but then I'm going to say that I got married there lol. Reply to this

The glass igloo seems like a lot of fun and a great way to enjoy the northern light!
Camping in Jordan with the bedouins is definitely on my list in the coming months (right now it is 16 degrees in Amman so still quite cold for camping!)
Big thanks to Dave & Merry for sharing the link.
