Retro Retreat: Samzi UFO Houses in Taiwan


Actually, this isn’t actually a Retro Retreat, more a former retreat – the Samzi UFO Houses in Taiwan.

It seems to be due for demolition in the near future, so a flight to Taiwan to check it out might be too late. But you can check out an amazing Flickr gallery via the link below, showing just about every amazing detail of the development. If only Butlins looked like this…
