San Zhi Ghost Resort in Taiwan

San Zhi Ghost Resort in Taiwan

Sanzhi is the location of an abandoned vacation resort on the northern coast of Taiwan. It was built in early 1981, but construction of the futuristic resort ceased after a series of fatal accidents.

Even though it never opened as a vacation resort, the UFO houses can still be toured. The strange pod-like buildings act as a tourist attraction.

50 Most Unusual Buildings of the World, Part 3

This is from a post on Village of Joy, with link provided in the folder. The buildings are in the folder in the same order as on their website.
