This tour bus owned by a German tour company features a six-foot-long bed for each of its passengers, though each bunk is only about 3 feet wide by 3 feet high. There is a bathroom on the bus, but no, there are no shower or bathing facilities. Want to go to Africa when you sleeping?
Jalopnik wirtes "The company is called Rotel Tours (the word is a portmanteau of "rolling" and "hotel") and it has, unbelieveably, been hosting bus-bed tours of Europe, Asia, and Africa since 1959. It was founded in 1945 by a man named — we are not making this up — George Hötel. His firm's buses cater almost exclusively to German tourists; in the past fifty years, they have done everything from crossing the Sahara desert to traversing Mongolia and Vietnam. "
