Pondok Bambu Prison, Indonesia
Wait, aren't Indonesian prisons supposed to be rat-infested hellholes where drug smugglers rot away if they're lucky enough to avoid the firing squad? Actually, it depends on how much cash said (un?)lucky drug smuggler slips to authorities -- bribery can score you a much better view, including one from the lovely Pondok Bambu Prison. TRAVELER'S NOTE: If you’re ever convicted of a crime in Indonesia, don't forget to bring your checkbook to sentencing. Also, two pieces of ID -- 'cause they're never going to accept it without, and you don't want everyone in line behind you to be sighing and making comments under their breath about the dude who's still using a checkbook.
Perks: The prison is decked out with garden sculptures, designer furniture, A/C, in-cell refrigerators, karaoke machines (Young MC, anyone?), and a beauty salon that offers haircuts and spa treatments. And their promotional video (above) includes a nifty jingle about peace, love, and harmony, as well as tearful inmates thankful for their incarceration.
