Trivia Question: In Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni, there’s a hotel made almost entirely of what?

Salt
Glass
Garbage
Gold

The Palacio de Sal is located on the Salar de Uyuni salt flat in Bolivia — the world’s largest salt flat. Given the abundance of salt in the region, hotelier Juan Quesada Valda had the idea to construct the hotel and most of its interior using salt blocks. The original building, from the 1990s, had to be dismantled, but a new location opened in the 2000s. If you go, resist the temptation to lick the walls — doing so damages the structure over time.

The Answer: The correct answer is Salt.
