If you have ever experienced a vacation on a cruise you know how rewarding it feels. They are probably the best if you want a relaxing and breathtaking view on your vacation. You can experience so many cultures and see locations all packed in one vacation. One of the best parts of going on a vacation on a cruise, however, is the giant ship itself. Shipbuilders and Designers have to consider that you will be staying on one cruise, unable to leave, for days at a time. And they have to make it entertaining and worth the stay. They pack these cruises with a lot more entertainment than you can ever experience in the short time you are on them.
One such hotel in South Korea took the idea and made something incredible on the cliff. Perched high above the shores on the coastal cliff in Jeongdongjin, a South Korean tourist town known for having the best view of the sunrise build a cruise ship that appears to have been mysteriously transported from the sea. It is the world’s first on-land cruise-themed resort named The Sun Cruise Resort & Yacht.
You get to experience almost everything that you can get on a normal cruise just not the actual ocean waves that makes some people feel nauseous. The hotel measures 45 metres in height, 165 metres in length, and 30,000 tons in weight. This amazingly builds cruise at the cliff has 211 rooms, both condominium and hotel style, a Korean restaurant and a Western, a night club, a karaoke, a revolving sky lounge, and a seawater pool. It also offers six state-of-the-art function rooms for workshops and seminars.
Overhead speakers play sounds of crashing waves around the ship and even bird calls to make you feel like you are on the ocean. Opened in 2002, it quickly became one of the most popular attractions in South Korea. And you can enjoy this for only £45.12 a night (80,000 South Korean Won).
On the beach below the cliff is a small port where many people can land their helicopters, rent boats, and have a nice fancy dinner. The main shop/restaurant is a small ship that has also been built on top of the cliff which makes it all once in a lifetime experience. There is a tea room. Custom to South Korea you sit on mats on the floor and enjoy your tea. The resort also offers these excursions and beach activities. Another great thing about having your vacation here is that you have the opportunity to really explore the local area without a time crunch to get back to port as this ship is on land.
