10 Most Unique Restaurants In The World
1) Ice Restaurant In Dubai
Chillout Ice Lounge from the Sharaf Group is the first ice lounge in the Middle East. Summers are extremely hot and humid in Dubai, with an average high around 41 °C, so this is a great way for tourists to beat the heat and to keep cool while dining. However, you will be given thermal clothing upon arrival as the lounge is set at -6°C and everything is made out of ice from the benches to the bar.
2) Underwater Restaurant In Maldives
Ithaa (which means mother-of-pearl in Dhivehi) is an undersea restaurant located 5 metres (16 ft) below sea level at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island in Alif Dhaal Atoll in the Republic of Maldives. Guests have the luxury of dining with a picturesque panoramic underwater view.
