At first glance, this may look like a medieval castle somewhere in Europe, but this is actually the Jilong Castle Country Club. This four-star resort,, located on a small island in the middle of Wanfeng Lake in southwestern China’s Guizhou Province, wouldn’t look out of place in a fairy tale, complete with a picturesque bridge linking it to the mainland. However, don’t let its looks fool you, staying a night here will only run you around $40 USD for a basic room.
Its history remains a mystery, but some claim that it was built by a local hydroelectric power magnate back in 2011. Why is that worth knowing? Well, the resort is powered by its very own hydroelectric plant. If this resort reminds you of any other structure, it could by the Neuschwanstein Castle located on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany.
