Death on holiday… or something like that

death-themed hotel

A Chinese woman has opened a mausoleum-themed inn to let people experience the feeling of death. Jiao Meige set up the Mausoleum Inn in a house in Lishui town, Jiangsu province, reports the Jinling Evening Post. The building is shaped like a Chinese mausoleum, and the beds are in the shapes of coffins.

“I rented this piece of land to put a farm there, but because there are many old graves in the field, no one wants to work here,” she said.

Jiao says the idea for the Mausoleum Inn came to her in a flash.

“Since there are so many graves, why don’t I give people a chance to experience death?” she asked. “There are no services at night, and the guest can go nowhere, since outside is just a vast graveyard.”


If you’re a heart patient you can’t stay there. Mental patients can’t either unless they are accompanied by someone who, well, isn’t a mental patient. The question is, would anyone but mental patients want to stay there?
