** Langley Hall is a much straighter example (for [[BigLabyrinthineBuilding a given value of planet at least]]), located right where one would need it the most: the [[EldritchLocation horrendous, anarchic pit of thinning reality that is Eleutheria]]. There are enough accommodations for anyone that might drop by, and you're free to stay permanently if you don't ever want to face the freakish stuff outside again. It's a quieter sort of pleasure, what with it being a fancy Victorian mansion far bigger than the laws of distance would allow, but it's pleasurable nonetheless. Just don't leave too early, [[PossessiveParadise it has ways of making you return]].

It is mentioned that the planet's tourism bureau once ran an ad campaign with the slogan "when you are tired of Ursa Minor Beta, you are tired of life." And the galaxy's suicide rate quadrupled overnight.
** It also had the fabulously beautiful planet of Bethselamin, whose government grew so concerned by the cumulative erosion effects of billions of tourist visitors, that they passed a law whereby any net imbalance between what you eat and what you excrete while visiting that world is surgically removed before you are allowed to leave.
