Want to stargaze from your bed? Try bubble hotels!
Bubble hotels or Bubble rooms are a relatively new attraction that countries have started developing to increase international tourism. Bubble rooms are essentially transparent domes that people can live in. These offer a beautiful view of the sky to anyone who tilt their heads up, whilst staying inside the room. These are especially beautiful at night when one can stargaze while resting in the comfort of their bed.
Bubble rooms can be made fully or semi-opaque, for privacy. Hotels offer these bubbles, furnished, for people to stay in. Some offer only bedrooms, while some offer bedrooms with attached washrooms, with bathtubs, and dining areas. The bubbles are kept erect and fresh at all times by a silent air ventilation system.
