The Tianzi Hotel in Hebei Province, China, is unlike any other structure I have seen before. The 10 story building is comprised of three giant ancient Chinese men who represent Fu Lu Shou, which means good fortune, prosperity and longevity.
The iconic hotel, which is also known as The Emperor Hotel and Son of Heaven Hotel, is said to be the largest image building in the world.
Implications - The tourism industry is one that is rapidly expanding as major hotel moguls continue to invade even the most unexpected nations for the sake of expanding this domain. Hotels that are uniquely exquisite in their architecture and features serve as tourist attractions in and of themselves. Moreover, hotels that incorporate modern chic concepts and decorative ideas that are consistent with the cultural traditions of the countries that house them attract the most traveler attention in this increasingly competitive industry.
