Quirkiness of a decidedly funky kind

Not content with always having the biggest or most expensive of something, Dubai can now proudly announce that it is home to one of the "quirkiest" hotels in the world

According to TravelAdvisor, The Al Maha Desert Resort comes in at 6th place in the Funky Hotels race, snuggled between a treetop hotel in Brazil and a Wigwam motel in Arizona.

1. Ice Hotel Quebec, Canada (ice everything; near Quebec City)
2. Malmaison Oxford Castle, Oxford, England (old jailhouse)
3. Imperial Boat House, Koh Samui, Thailand (converted rice barges)
4. Fantasyland Hotel & Resort, Edmonton, Alberta (indoor park)
5. Ariau Amazon Towers Hotel, Manaus, Brazil (70 feet high up in treetops)
6. Al Maha Desert Resort, Dubai, United Arab Emirates (“Bedouin” oasis)
7. Wigwam Motel, Holbrook, Ariz. (teepee-style concrete tents)
8. Yunak Evleri, Urgup, Turkey (cave rooms)
9. Quinta Real Zacatecas, Zacatecas, Mexico (built around defunct bull-ring)
10. Madonna Inn, San Luis Obispo, Calif. (Barbie moves in with Barney Rubble)

Number 10 sounds kind of interesting
