Glass-bottomed walkway: Royal Princess cruise ship
This glass-bottomed walkway was unveiled earlier this year, and can be found on Princess Cruises' Royal Princess ship.
The walkway extends eight meters (28 feet) beyond the edge of the vessel and is the first of its kind to be found aboard a cruise ship.
Those who choose to "walk the plank" have nothing to fear -- the glass is more than an inch thick, or four times the thickness of the average car windshield.
Royal Princess; Princess Cruises direct travelers to book through a travel agent; prices from $1,786 for four-day cruise along U.S. West Coast
Revolving hotel: Marmara Antalya, Antalya, Turkey
Marmara Antalya is the world's first revolving hotel.
The 2,750-ton building floats in a tank holding 478 tons of water.
The hotel's three lower floors are submerged, and it's the three floors above ground which rotate, with the help of six electric motors.
So, although visitors will never get tired of the view, guests who suffer from motion sickness might steer clear.

Vegetation wall: Changi Airport, Singapore
Located in terminal three, Changi Airport's green wall is the world's largest vertical garden, measuring 300 meters (984 feet) by 14 meters (45 feet) and contains more than 10,000 plants.
There are four water features and the plants are secured to metal cables attached to an enormous framework, which allows their position to be altered.
The misting system used to water the plants also helps to regulate the internal temperature of the airport.

Cat-obsessed railway: Wakayama Prefecture, Japan
If you need proof of how much the Japanese love their cats, a journey on the Wakayama Electric Railway may be in order.
Images of cats adorn the interior and exterior of the train and the Wakayama Electric Railway's official station master is a cat called Tama.
Tama is also credited with saving the railway -- before her appointment, the railway was struggling financially, but tourists now come from all over the world to visit Tama and purchase a range of Tama-themed gifts.
