Imagine sitting in a comfortable armchair and tucking into dishes from all around the world, while being suspended high in the air. If that sounds like something you’d love to try, then make a reservation at Dinner In The Sky. This 90-minute experience starts near the Dubai Marina. As you ascend, you’ll be treated to views of major landmarks in this city, including the Palm Jumeirah and the Burj Al Arab. Once you’ve arrived at a height of 50 metres, you’ll get to indulge in a three-course menu, together with drinks of your choice. If you’d like an even greater thrill, use the armchair’s swivel function and turn it to face outwards, with your feet dangling in the air, for a heart-stopping yet epic memory.


2. Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, Maldives

Those who love marine life should prioritise a visit to Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, which sits 5 metres below the surface of the Indian Ocean. It’s the world’s first undersea restaurant where diners are treated to 360° panoramic views of rays, sharks, and shoals of multi-coloured tropical fishes that swim by. Besides taking in the sight of these sea creatures that glide past every now and then, guests can look forward to a medley of contemporary European dishes with subtle hints of Asian influence, as well as fine wines or cocktails. In case you’re wondering how you’ll get to the restaurant, no, there won’t be a need for swimming or diving skills of any sort – you’ll enter the restaurant through a spiral staircase at a jetty, so non-swimmers are welcome to visit!


3. Blue Hills Ranch, United States of America

Ever wondered what it’s like to dine with animals? Wonder no more. Make a trip to Blue Hills Ranch, which is a 3-hour drive away from central Houston. This space is home to a myriad of animals, ranging from zebras and camels, to bisons, horses, and the star of the show: giraffes. If you’re a fan of the latter, here’s your once-in-a-lifetime chance to dine with them. The tallest members of this farm will stand right next to you as you munch on charcuterie and attempt to take selfies with them. Beware: they may try to nibble on your light bites, and playfully touch your camera and other belongings. Sign up for this hour-long experience, bring the young ones in your family, and be prepared to create memories of a lifetime.


4. Sydney Oyster Farm Tours, Australia

This experience is one for the foodies, especially those who are into farm-to-table dining. Hop on a boat that takes you out to some of the oyster farms located just off the coast of Sydney, then slide into the provided waders and into the waters, where you’ll find your own private table! You’ll be greeted by oyster farmers who will not only shuck fresh oysters for you, but also share more about Sydney Rock and Pacific Oysters, and answer any questions that you may have about this form of farming in Broken Bay. You’re also welcome to bring your own booze and enjoy a tipple as you slurp up the oysters that are harvested straight from the very waters that you’re standing in.
