A night with sharks? Paris aquarium offers underwater bedroom

<p>There is no doubt it’s a room with a view – but how would you like to be surrounded by sharks as you sleep?</p> <p>A special underwater bedroom, sitting in three million litres of water, has been created at the Paris Aquarium. </p> <p>A few lucky <a href="https://www.airbnb.com/night-at/shark-aquarium">contest</a> winners will get the chance to stay in April before it becomes a research facility.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/airbnb?src=hash">#airbnb</a> sleep with a few sharks! well done <a href="https://twitter.com/afrenove"><code>afrenove</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/shoukoujo"></code>shoukoujo</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/CeeZd"><code>CeeZd</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/SofdeKep"></code>SofdeKep</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/ubi_bene"><code>ubi_bene</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/AquariumdeParis"></code>AquariumdeParis</a> <a href="https://t.co/EFvNSxYgRe">https://t.co/EFvNSxYgRe</a></p>— Cyril Delattre (@cyrildelattre) <a href="https://twitter.com/cyrildelattre/status/714816830091579392">March 29, 2016</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> <p>The room with a difference is submerged in a 10-metre-deep aquarium <br /> with just a see-through wall separating guests from 35 sharks. Two people can stay, with a round-shaped bed occupying most of the space. </p> <p>The underwater sleepover will also aim to teach the three winners and their guests about sharks with host, freediver Fred Buyle. </p> <p>“Sharks are really, really misunderstood… People need to understand that sharks are not dangerous, there are only dangerous behaviours with sharks,” he said.</p>
