Sun Cruise Resort & Yacht - The World’s First On-Land Cruise ShipSun Cruise  

The world’s first on-land cruise ship, this hotel takes all the joy of a cruise ship and combines it with the usefulness of staying in one place.

The sound of waves lapping at the hull is simulated, so you can imagine you are on a cruise.

The location is on a cliff at Jeongdongjin beach, renowned for having the best sunrise in Korea. The revolving bar and lounge on the top floor allow you the best sunrise and sunset view.

Type: Boat

From the urban side of Jeongdongjin, the ship looks like it was run ashore. But in reality, it's perched off a high cliff.

The boat is 541 feet (165 meters) long, 148 feet (45 meters) high, and weighs an incredible 30,000 tons.

God knows how they got it up on the cliff in the first place… perhaps it was stranded up there like Noah’s Ark after the flood.
