House Made Entirely From Salt

At first glance, you could be forgiven for mistaking these images for a beach house, with the floors dusted in a layer of sand and walls made from stone. But in fact everything in this incredible South American hotel is made from salt – including most of the furniture. The Hotel de Sal, near Colchani, Bolivia, hosts guests who have come to visit the stunning salt flats where vast expanses of salt lakes give the surreal impression of the earth meeting the sky. Tourists typically stay for a few days to see the natural wonders of Bolivia’s most notorious attraction before moving on to the next stop of their journey. For $116 a night, lodgers can rent a double room – complete with their own salt bed of course – and breakfast.” w/ photos
