The Haoduo Panda Hotel is the world’s first panda-themed hotel, where everything from the decor to the staff are pandas (well, people in panda costumes). Nestled at the foot of Emei Mountain in China’s Sichuan province, the panda hotel will officially open in May, with rates starting at about $45 per night.
