Some of the pictures at the end are especially cool... .

The Salar de Uyuni is the world's largest salt flat at 10,582 square kilometers (4,086 sq mi) and a major tourist destination in Bolivia,
devoid of wildlife or vegetation but home to an estimated 10-billion tons of salt
.

  What is no less incredible is that people who visit this amazing place, stay. How does one build something in the middle of vast emptiness? 
The answer is astonishing
.

This exotic part of the world is in for a real treat,
and a stay in one of the world's most unique hotel is a real experience.
A lack of conventional construction materials in the area means that hotels are built entirely with salt blocks cut from the Salar itself.
The most famous is Palacio de Sal, Spanish for "Palace of Salt"
.



The hotel is made of 1 million 4-inch salt blocks, used for the floor,
walls, ceiling and furniture, including beds, tables, chairs and culptures.
The hotel has a dry sauna and a steam room, a saltwater pool and whirlpool baths for guests to relax in and enjoy this unreal place.










And the random net curtain below. Presidential suite?!!! He he




Imagine what it's like, sleeping on salt beds,
sitting on salt chairs and eating at salt tables.
How beautiful everything in this hotel is,
although that beauty is nothing compared to the views.











The salt flats are so white and clear that they often show a
perfect reflection of the sky and the objects above them.
In fact, because the Salar is so flat and has such a strong reflection,
similar to that of ice sheets, it is used for calibrating the
distance-measurement equipment of satellites in space!
The white, endless flats also offer visitors a unique
opportunity to take some truly mind-bending pictures. 
With no other objects in sight, the human eye loses its ability to establish a proper field of depth. The results are some of the most creative and bizarre pictures you will ever see.










The Salar is truly a place like no other, a magical kingdom of salt and beauty where one can drive on the endless flats
and see the sky both above and below him. 
I t is just one of many places on earth that prove that beauty has no rules and that nature always has one more trick up her sleeve.
