China: Some youth hostel

China: Some youth hostel | Wicked! | Scoop.it

I didn't stay there when I was in Beijing but this looks like quite an amazing place to test: The Peking international youth hostel. Typical Chinese communal room and outside garden with what looks like real double bedrooms that come at €50 per night. That's not cheap compared with Beijing standards (more around €20-ish per night) but this might be worth it nevertheless as the hostel is really within walking distance from the Forbidden city! (like literally next door!)

Sweden: The invisible hotel room

Sweden: The invisible hotel room | Wicked! | Scoop.it

Can you see the room? The "Mirror cube" can be found at the Treehotel in the small town of Lulea, just about 64 kilometers from the Artic circle! Too bad it costs an eye to spend the night: €460 per night for 2 (€320 single). Breakfast buffet included, thank you very much.

Somewhere Asia (?): A  smart caban in the woods | Wicked! | Scoop.it

Real nice caban in the woods. Have no idea where this is located though. No credit or related source. Too bad: Must be quite an experience to stay overnight... But for the associated wild Asian mosquitoes experience I guess...

Switzerland: Most beautiful mountains in the world? | Wicked! | Scoop.it

This is the view on the Breithorn glacier, also known as the easiest 4,000 m climb from all the Alpin peaks... Because you actually don't have to walk all the way up there, thanks to the Klein Matterhorn cable car that will take you up to 3,820 m ;-)

Wish I can attend this for real one day: This is the lantern festival in Chiang Mai that happens every year in November where hundreds of flying lanterns will be released at night over the city to create a bridge of light between us and the dead.

Vietnam: Heaven for your senses

Vietnam: Heaven for your senses | Wicked! | Scoop.it

Is this really... Vietnam?? I wasn't really aware of any real beautiful beach in Vietnam, as this is not really why the country is so famous for. But this looks like it would definitely be worth a detour. This is the Six Senses luxury resort that opened on Con Dao islands, in south west of Vietnam, just 45 minutes away by flight from Ho Chi Minh city (also still called by some "Saigon" :)).

USA: Coolest flight attendant ever at Southwest

This is a classic now but couldn't resist to share it again: This shows just how personal and different flying with Southwest can be. This flight attendant ain't gonna do the regular boring onboard announcement once more. No, instead, he's just going to... rap it! Absolutely brilliant!

Indonesia (?): Flying balloons at dawn | Wicked! | Scoop.it

Stumbled upon this amazing picture with no credit or any information on location. Flying ballons at dawn in Indonesia or India maybe? This kind of photo is the very reason why it's basically compulsory to wake up at dawn to visit pretty much... any amazing place in the world. Sigh. So long for the late mornings...

China: A park to remember | Wicked! | Scoop.it

Amazing moutains located in the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, in the South East of China. Best way to get there: Fly from Beijing to Zhangjiajie to cover the 1700 km distance in about 2h30. Or enjoy Chinese railway: Journey takes 23 to 26 hours... Plenty of time to think... :)
