The answer to the phrase where should we go out for dinner used to be simpler before. It was most often 'the place at the corner' or 'that Chinese place' or some new restaurant that just opened. Now that dining options have broken new frontiers, things have dramatically gone out of hand! You have options ranging from dining beside a waterfall to dining on a boat on a Sydney Harbour dinner cruise! Here are some unique dining options that will blow your mind!
Dine under water Yes, you can dine under water, and no, you won't be wearing scuba suits and having food passed to you via a tube! Located in Maldives, the Rangali Island Resort is an underwater restaurant located about five metres under sea level. With a curved transparent roof, you get a 270°panoramic view of the sea life and watch turtles and colourful fish swimming past as you dine. There is seating capacity for only 14 guests, so book ahead in advance.
Dine on a treetop
Ever felt like having dinner in a tree house? Well, you can do one better than a creaky old backyard treehouse by having dinner on a luxury pod on top of a redwood tree, 32ft above the ground – a restaurant in the Kiwi Islands of New Zealand. You can't just walk in and ask for a table for two at this restaurant as the venue is now used for private functions and parties. With a maximum capacity of up to 30 guests, dine and chill on top of a tree with your best mates beside you!
Dine on the largest passenger plane Do you like the idea of dining on a plane but not a big fan of the usual 'gourmet' choices of sandwiches or warm chicken and packaged drinks? Well, if you're visiting Taiwan, you can enjoy dining on a plane – not just any plane – one of the largest passenger planes! You won't really be dining on an Airbus A380, but a model of it, but it still counts. Also served by flight attendants, you can have the authentic experience of dining on pull down tables and plastic cutlery!
Dine on a boat After seeing Titanic you may have wanted to dine like Jack did in first class sampling caviar and champagne served by white-gloved waiters. Well, it's not exactly the same, but you can have a similar experience dining on a Sydney Harbour dinner cruise sampling some fine cuisine while enjoying the best views of Sydney after sunset, when the harbour comes to life.
Dine beside a waterfall There are lots of things to do with a waterfall, but dining beside it will be the last thing on your mind. Well, now you can do just that in Philippines. Technically it's not a waterfall and is the spill over from a dam, but you get all the visual and aural effects of a waterfall and also the views!Dining options are limited to a buffet, so if you don't mind getting a tad bit wet in the process of dining, book your table now!
