Shandong Province “Panda Hotel of Healing” – The National Beast ″ too cute animals″ are everywhere! More than 100 stuffed pandas, which are designated as China’s national beasts, are decorating the exterior of the hotel and the surrounding electric wires.

A myriad of outlandish lodging facilities, including those filled with more than 100 stuffed pandas, built on the slopes of cliffs, and where you can meet polar bears….

These unique hotels operate throughout China, and many people would like to visit them at least once. Chinese journalist Zhou Laiyu explains, “Recently, hotels that have been the talk of the town, where influencers have stayed, tend to be popular.

These hotels often become the talk of the town on social networking sites before they are picked up by the media, making them a kind of “hideaway. A fancy hotel decorated with pandas is one such example.

The “Cliffside Hotel” in Mangxian Valley is a beautiful and unexplored area designated as a National 4A Scenic Area (4 out of 5 tourist attractions in China), yet it costs less than 10,000 yen per night. In addition to the satisfaction of staying in a hotel with a spectacular view at a reasonable price, you can also feel a sense of superiority that you can transmit on your social networking service. A hotel that combines both cost performance and buzz is exactly what these young people are hoping for.

Despite the high-profile nature of the hotel, some problems have been brought to light. The “world’s first hotel where you can see polar bears” is a luxury hotel that offers 24-hour viewing of polar bears and costs more than 30,000 yen per night. ……

When the hotel opened in ’21, it was flooded with reservations due to its newsworthiness, but animal rights groups have criticized the hotel for keeping polar bears, an endangered species, in poor conditions. As animal protection activities are becoming more active worldwide, there is a strong possibility that hotels that make a spectacle of animals will lose customers in the future. Rather, hotels like those in the Gobi Desert that allow guests to experience an extraordinary experience by going into nature themselves are more in line with the needs of the times. The Gobi Desert is well-received by word of mouth, with guests commenting on the scenery, “It’s like being on Mars! and it’s fun, just like being on Mars! In fact, there is a phenomenon in China, such as a sharp increase in the number of campervans sold since last year,” he said.

It seems that the public is looking for “hidden trend hotels” that match the values of the times rather than strange hotels.

Jiangxi Province “Cliffside Hotel” – a too dangerous accommodation built on a steep slope. It is located in a beautiful and unexplored area called Mangxian Valley, which is recognized as a National 4A Class Scenic Area. It is lit up at night, creating a fantastic atmosphere.
Qinghai Province “Five-Star Hotel in the Desert” A luxurious space emerging in the middle of the Gobi Desert. This is a new hotel that opened last year. It has 109 guest rooms, and is a hot topic of conversation for its beautiful views of the desert and salt lakes.
Polar Bear Hotel” in Heilongjiang Province, where you can watch polar bears 24 hours a day from your room. This is the world’s first hotel where you can see polar bears, a luxury hotel that costs more than 30,000 yen per night, but has been criticized for its breeding environment. ……
Hubei Province “China’s Version of the U.S. Capitol Hotel” The U.S. Capitol is in China! There are several copies of the U.S. Capitol in China, including a hotel and a government office.
Shandong Province “Self-Powered Eco-Hotel” with a large number of solar panels installed on the exterior of the hotel. This eco-friendly hotel in an industrial area is equipped with solar panels covering an area of about 5,000 square meters. The price is about 10,000 yen or less per night.
