How would you like to stay at a hotel that is a huge cruise ship, on dry land, perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean in South Korea? Or have a meal at a Philippine restaurant at the bottom of a water fall with your feet resting in the water? Or watch a movie from a floating cinema in Thailand? We’ve got all this, plus places of beautiful or exotic nature and human ingenuity.
