InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland is first underground quarry hotel

When it comes to world-class hotels, Asia certainly has its fair share. But, there is nothing like the new InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland Hotel, which is the world’s first underground quarry hotel (a “ground scraper,” rather than skyscraper, if you will) and the 200th in the InterContinental global portfolio. It was built into the side of an abandoned quarry. Today, it is a showpiece for the brand and the region demonstrating how something of little use could be repurposed as a natural habitat and tourist destination. We take you on a look inside the resort, which celebrated its grand opening in November last year.
