They look like giant goldfish bowls but really they are human bowls.
The luxury see-through bubbles are being offered by  Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort in northern Thailand. But also close to the Laos and Myanmar borders.  The luxury polyester plastic “Jungle Bubbles” were designed by Spanish company, “Eye In the Sky”. Fully air-conditioned, guests can spend from dusk to dawn being entertained by their very own en-suite elephant herd. The bubbles come with bathrobes and slippers, a king-sized bed, bubble-service and non-transparent bathroom facilities.
