Oil Rig Converted Into Brand New Holiday Spot For Scuba Divers

Only 120 diving and snorkelling permits are granted near Sipadan island each day, and lately, some of those have been going to folks using an old oil rig's elevator to drop right into the perfect waters.

Basically, the oil rig has been converted into a hotel called Seaventures, and while its 25 tiny guest rooms don't exactly resemble those of a luxury resort, they do include access to that elevator which'll lead to some crystal clear water, coral reefs and plenty of ocean life.
