Inspa World perfect luxury at mere $30 to get in

Looking for an exciting place for the whole family? Then check out Inspa World, a five-story 60,000-square-foot funhouse is an elaborate local copy of a jimjilbang, a traditional Korean 24-hour bathhouse where folks soak, steam, and eat together, and sometimes even sleepover.

The gold one has tiles coated with 96 percent pure gold.
