Only in São Paulo; A hotel for Bonsai
Over in Jardim Petropolis, in the state of São Paulo, is a hotel called Bonsai Kai. But this particular hotel is not for holidaying tourists. It is, as the name suggests, for bonsai.
And in case you think it is a fad or a publicity stunt, you'll be happy to learn it has actually been around since 1995 and the hotel is thriving with an average of 40 trees sleeping there per night! Whether this is driven by the huge local japanese population or by something else, one thing is clear; there is definitely a market for the bonsai hotel.
