The owners of the Tianjin Binhai Aircraft Carrier have outfitted the flotilla into a luxury hotel with phenomenal results. Once a zone for war, this ship has undergone an extreme transformation.
After an initial investment by the owners of $100 million on renovations and interior decoration, this 6,000-square-meter, retired Soviet vessel now serves as a floating hotel, complete with two presidential suites. Despite boasting luxurious rugs, high-tech TVs and on-call sea captains, the Tianjin Binhai Aircraft Carrier's rugged exterior reminds us of the hotel's educational purpose. Most people have never been inside a modern warship, so the resort will offer extreme comfort, as well as give visitors the opportunity to explore the expansive structure. The view isn't bad either!
