This Underwater Bungalow In The Maldives Costs $50,000 Per Night

For anyone concerned about climate change, the Maldives are a prime example of its negative effects. Every year a little bit more of the Maldives are under water—at this rate, the entire country is expected to be below sea level in about 30 years. But one of humanity's greatest strengths is our ability to adapt. For instance, if the ocean is rising, we'll simply build a hotel underwater!

And just because the bungalow is below sea level doesn't mean it will be sacrificing quality!

The price of your stay is nothing to be scoffed at, however.

Twitter is in awe of the underwater views!

Of course, the climate change jokes were often too good for users to ignore.

If you want to visit and you've got the funds to make it happen, it seems you'd be in good company!

Though the suite isn't without its downsides…

Who knows? Perhaps this new hotel will start a trend of climate-change friendly locations!
