Sarah Meyers's insight:

All images and pictures of the Dalai Lama are forbidden in China and punishable by imprisonment by the Communist Party, with harsh punishments particularily in Tibet, the home of the former residence of the Buddhist sage.

China's Sustainable Cave Hotel Under Construction

China's Sustainable Cave Hotel Under Construction | Americans in Shanghai | Scoop.it

Construction has started on a cave hotel resort by Atkins that will nestle into the rockface of an abandoned water-filled quarry near Shanghai, China.

Once complete, the hotel will offer around 400 rooms, as well as conference facilities, a banquet hall, restaurants, a swimming pool and a water-sports centre.

The building will use geothermal technologies to generate its own electricity and lighting, while greenery will blanket a roof that extends just two storeys above the edge of the quarry.


Sustainability is integral to Atkins' design of this unique resort, built into an abandoned, water-filled quarry.

A new hotel gonna be built near Shanghai, China which will call with a name ' Cave hotel'. This new hotel will have a shape like a waterfall in the middle of two buildings of hotel. A great ideal hotel will come up in the future make the guest really interested included me, it uses geothermal technologies to generate its own electricity. It is really a great hotel but what i consider is this hotel will be built in among the environment and it will be affect directly to the environment which many protecter want to protect the environment. Waster will be a problem with this hotel because there is no water factory near there. The idea of this hotel is great but it will create many problems to some objecter like green environment. I don't think this hotel can build and success in the future.
