Description:
I have discovered a cool exotic place called "Florida" in Studen, near Biel in Switzerland.


The Florida has started as campground "Camp-Florida" in 1956.
Today it is a Hotel complex with restaurants, a discoteque, mini-golf, kids-playground, etc. They also have some animals such as Flamingos and Parrots.


But the interesting thing is the 1962 built tropical restaurant. The restaurant is filled with tropical plants and bamboo and some Moai Tikis !! A vintage Tiki-Place in Switzerland.

Well.. not the Mai-Kai,
but pretty cool if you consider that it is in Switzerland.
