Travel & Tourism-The Places To Visit In The Vacations

The earliest form of leisure tourism can be traced as far back as the Babylonian and Egyptian empires. A museum of historic antiquities was open to the public in Babylon. The Egyptians held many religious festivals that attracted the devout and many people who thronged to cities to see famous works of arts and buildings. For some reason, we fail to see hotels as a tourist attraction, which is extremely unfair. If you think about it, hotels are the place where most of the tourists spend the majority of their time. Taj Mahal is one of the most frequented Indian attraction that has secured its position twice in Seven Wonders of World.

Thanks to the internet and other modern day facilities, people, even when on tours, tend to spend most of their time indoors playing with their gadgets or just getting some rest. The world has changed drastically, even in hotels. Previously, the best a hotel could achieve was 5-stars but the stakes have risen and now the top class hotels can extend their status to 7-stars. Let’s take some time out and pay homage to some of the greatest modern day hotels, good enough to be the sole reason for attracting tourists all over the world.

One of the coolest hotels in our books is the Propeller Island City Lodge. If you are looking to visit Germany, you should not miss the opportunity to stay at this magnificent hotel. Designed by a famous artist, this hotel is stuffed full of rooms based on various different themes. You can choose to stay in an upside down room, where all the furniture is conveniently stuck on the ceiling. Don’t despair, you won’t be expected to sleep on the ceiling bed, there’s a trapdoor on the floor leading to your sleeping equipment. Another popular room is the flying room where the bed actually levitates.
