That, in itself, gives them points for winning the future! However, your mind is going to be blown when you lay your eyes on Gardens by the Bay.

The perfect combination of a futuristic structure placed in tandem with nature and focusing on bringing Eco-consciousness to the future isn’t hard to locate. It can be found in the Svart Hotel in Norway. The circular hotel lays low, close to the water, simple in its design, so much so that it looks like an alien ship. It’s aiming to open its doors by 2022, so put this at the top of the list to be one of the first people to experience amazing views of glaciers, fjords, and nature at its best.
The Robot Restaurant – Japan
Japan in and of itself is a glimpse into the future because they’re always one step ahead and constantly coming up with amazing, weird and innovative ideas and structures. However, if there was just one place for your to pick on your visit to Japan, it should definitely be the Robot Restaurant in Tokyo.
While you’ll find that food is not really the focus and that you’ll be able to get some bento boxes if you like, the real experience lies in the setup itself and the show. When you walk into this place, it’s filled with electroluminescent lighting that immediately transports you to another dimension.
The professionals behind EL wire point out that these kinds of lights are found in every color under the sun and give off a supernatural and alien glow. That alone will have you feeling you’re light years into the future. But what really steals the spotlight is the robot show that is performed by very talented performers. This is an experience that you’re sure to never forget.
The Underwater Hotel – Dubai
Dubai is yet another destination that does feel like another world because of how advanced and clean it is, not to mention the numerous iconic events and structures that can be found over there. If you’re looking for something out of this world and right into the future of an alternate world, then you must visit the underwater hotel.
A lot of hard work and thought has been put into the design of this structure and no words could possibly explain the feeling of being surrounding by water and sea life while standing on a dry floor or eating a meal.
Sky Garden – South Korea
Have you ever watched a movie or an animation where decades into the future, people are walking on walkways and looking down on the cars flying by? This is the closest thing in reality.
This path used to actually be a highway and has been transformed into an amazing walkway that is filled with greenery and cafes. It is beautiful and surreal to walk through during the day, but if you really want a sense of the futuristic effect, then you must experience it at night with the lights on.
Science World – Canada
