Spa amenities? Room service? Elevators? Pssh; how boring.

If you prefer your vacations to be more grand adventure than all-inclusive— the stuff that good travel stories are made of — then you might be looking for something a little…quirkier.

Trip Advisor rounded up their most interesting hotels, aaaaaall the way on the opposite end of the spectrum from, say, Sandals:

  • Hang Nga Guesthouse in Vietnam 4 of 10
    Hang Nga Guesthouse in Vietnam
    One reviewer described this hotel in Dalat, Vietnam as "one of the best & most bizarre places we visited in Vietnam...it's like a cross between Alice in Wonderland & a mini version of Gaudi's Sagrada Família in Barcelona." Pretty much every reviewer said that it's a fascinating place to visit, but not somewhere you'd want to stay. (Almost all reviewers described dirty, grimy rooms.)
