The World's Most Inconvenient Convenience Store Hangs On the Side of a Cliff

It takes a bit of work to get to the convenience store in the Shiniuzhai National Geological Park in Hunan province, China. For starters, you have to climb 393 feet up the side of a cliff. Dubbed “the world’s most inconvenient convenience store,” the small wooden box provides refreshments to climbers who need a quick break in the middle of their climb. The store stocks drinks and some snacks, with the price of bottled water capped at 30¢. It doesn’t make much money, but the tourists are very grateful for it. Only one worker is stationed inside the box, and part of their job is to replenish the store’s supplies every morning before dawn. As you might imagine, workers have to be very fit just to get to work each day. The only issue they face is the absence of a toilet. That means they have to make an exhausting climb back down the mountain each time they have to go, which explains why they don’t drink too much water while they’re on duty.
