The newest honeymoon hotspot is a shocking one: Saddam Hussein's bed. The deceased dictator's old bedroom inside his Hillah palace has been made available to the public for $180 per night. What's more, there's a discount for journalists that drops that figure down to $30.

Implications - A spokesman for the tourism and antiquities ministry by the name of Abdul Zahra al-Telagani states that he hopes visitors to Iraq will be able to leave with a positive message to tell their friends and family back home. Saddam Hussein’s is certainly a curious and controversial place to spend one’s wedding night. Would you want to spend your honeymoon in a deceased person’s bed?
