Iceland launches new sing-along tourism campaign
WE KNOW A SONG THAT'LL GET STUCK IN YOUR HEAD
At least this time around there are no presidents behaving badly.
It's been 45 years since the Watergate scandal and to celebrate the hotel's 50th anniversary, the Watergate Hotel have transformed room 214 into 'The Scandal Room'. As one of the most notorious events in 20th-century American politics, in 1972 there was a break-in at The Democratic National Convention headquarters, (conveniently right next to the Watergate Hotel) by five-men attempting to wiretap the opposition's office. The then President, Nixon, went on to actively participate in covering up the crime, which in itself was a political disgrace. But did he orchestrate it?... We'll probably never know.
Now you can stay in the very room the bandits stayed themselves, with a unique 2017 twist. It now features newspaper clippings about the scandal on the wall, furniture reminiscent of its 1972 decor, a vintage typewriter and cheeky hotel robes that read 'Cover Up'.
From Watergate to Area 51 and Alcatraz escapes, the USA is full of juicy scandals. Check out all our deals here - you might be one holiday away from solving them.
Originally brought over to cull the growing number of mice, a tiny fishing island in Japan is now over-run by more than 120 cats. Only 22 people live on Aoshima, off Ehime prefecture, and the human inhabitants are now getting somewhat over-whelmed by both cats, and cat-lovers flocking to see them.
Japan has been one of 2017's most popular countries to visit. Click here for all our current Japan holiday deals.
Houston hotel has a rooftop lazy river shaped like Texas
MARRIOTT MARQUIS HOUSTON
In what might be the most novel tribute ever gifted to Texas, the outline of the Marriott Marquis Houston's lazy river is the same shape as the southern state.
Located on the hotels' rooftop, and a lofty 33 metres above the ground, the lazy river carries guests around 'Texas' within 15 minutes. With an adjacent infinity pool and snazzy bar area, if you're heading off to Houston, be sure to check out Texas too.
