Window Seat


WHEN people travel abroad, part of the appeal of visiting a new country is typically to see the best attraction­s the destinatio­n has to offer, but what about the idea of checking out some of the worst?

If visiting China is in your stars, perhaps keep track of the country’s hall of shame for its 10 most ugly buildings, such as the tacky Tianzi Hotel, located in Langfang, north China’s Hebei Province (pictured above), or the bizarre pyramid-shaped apartment complex in Kunshan, Jiangsu (pictured below).

Other contenders in the quest to be crowned the least aesthetica­lly pleasing constructi­on include a church shaped like a giant violin and the Inner Mongolia Hotel which takes the form of a large babushka doll.

The light-hearted comp is designed to promote the idea of beauty being “highly flexible”.
