The Sun Cruise Hotel in Gangneung, South Korea offers a perplexing vista for first-time guests. Appearing to be a cruise ship perched on top of a large hill, the would-be Speed sequel is actually a hotel complete with heated floors, multiple walking gardens, and a breathtaking view of the Sea of Japan. You can get a taste of the cruise ship experience and still be a sticklegged land lubber!

Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman has a unique sense of style. Exhibit A (and also his most famous work): a massive rubber duck. What's the logical next step after making the King Kong of kids' bath toys? Why, take it on a world tour, of course! Ducky has already been spotted floating in bodies of water near Osaka, São Paulo, and Sydney. After Hong Kong, its next stop in the United States. Where in the United States? No one knows specifically, as Hofman has intentionally kept Ducky's tour dates a secret. So, if you happen to live in a large coastal metropolis, and you see Duckzilla giving you the staredown on your way to work, you'll know why.
