How could the abandoned buses be turned into a center of attraction? The answer to that unique experience is offered to customers in North China, by the owner of Tai Tai Park in Taiyuan. Guolin Han bought 30 old, dumped buses and turned them into mini-hotels as an example of great investment plan and recycling idea.
The exterior and interior walls are filled with pictures of cartoon characters, each mini-hotel comes with its own kitchen, bath, colourful design, has its own theme, popular cartoon character equipped beds, walls, with every detail that talks to the attention and enjoyment of the guest with an happy atmosphere promise. The whole idea of making one happy comes alive, the project is a remarkable piece.
The owner, Guolin Han, says it was so cheap to buy the abandoned buses and hence it’d be such a waste not to return them back to life for a good purpose. He’s right. Each bus was reconverted into a mini-hotel for 9000 dollars and they cost 43 dollars per night. The main customers targeted are families and couples.
Since they opened in May, hotels attrack more customers particularly on weekends. Folks eager to spend time there are suggested to make a reservation in advance.
The project does not only include unused buses but also tractors, trucks and aircraft. It’s not done, the owner plans to open a recreational vehicle museum in the future. His dream is to look at these recycled vehicles, remember what they used to be and how they turned out to be for a meaningful experience.
