Location: Dalat City, Vietnam
Hotel Name: Crazy House
The Skinny: Behold Crazy House, a mind-bendingly Seussian treehouse hotel that has sprung forth from the febrile imagination of one Dr. Dang Viet Nga who, according to the property's incredible website, functions as architect, structural designer, construction director and owner of this utterly unique Vietnamese resort. Nga, who trained at the University of Architecture in Moscow at the height of the Cold War, explains the design this way: "It is the co-ordination between slabs of stone and hollow of stumps. With slabs of stone, we can build a house with lots of nice, warm and comfortable rooms inside the hollow of stumps, or even a majestic palace in this way." So there's definitely method to the madness! The resort consists of three tree houses and the
slightly super creepy Spider Web Garden Area, with ten rooms that boast names like "Pheasant", "Termite", "Tiger" and, perhaps most disturbingly, "Honey Moon". Prices are extremely reasonable, with Honey Moon costing only $35 a night for two guests. There's also a special Honey Moon rate of $52.50 for three guests—offered in case you're bringing a guest along, hopefully?
