IHG to open the world's first underground hotel in China
The Shanghai Wonderland is opening after almost 10 years of being under construction.
Built into a quarry at the base of Tianmen Mountain, the InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland will be opening its doors later this month after 10 years of construction.
Initially meant to open in October, the hotel is now set to open on December 1. According to the hotel's website, rooms will become available for booking on November 20.
Sixteen of the hotel's 18 floors are underground, and the rooms on the bottom two floors are completely submerged and face a 33-foot-deep aquarium. The underwater portion of the hotel also includes a restaurant, pool, and watersports center, according to CNN.
