How much fun is this hotel room?  This is part of Hằng Nga Guesthouse, otherwise known as the Crazy House (I can’t think why).  Located in Da Lat, a hill town in Vietnam, it’s also a popular draw for tourists.

It’s a bizarre mash-up of influences, from Gaudi to Dali to Disney.  You could be forgiven for thinking that you’ve fallen down a rabbit hole when you walk around.  The maze-like interiors of the buildings appear to melt in places, and forget about seeing a normal rectangular room as this place is all about curves and organic forms.

Take a look at some more photos from my visit…

Precarious walkways join the buildings together.  Everything has a very organic feel.

    It looks like a body could have quite the little adventure here. And I didn’t miss the people climbing off the roof, just wondering why. The room is a hodge-podge of everything. I can only imagine waking up in a strange place and seeing myself here. No matter, I love new and different experiences, so probably would take a leap of faith, and explore the possibilities. So what if I’m not a particular fan of heights and small spaces!

      I didn’t stay here, but if I did I’m not sure that I would pick the tiger room! It was a fascinating place to walk around and the gardens were beautiful (but covered in cobwebs). The lady who designed it has a great imagination!

    Wow, I can’t believe I missed this plae during my time in Vietnam, Da Lat in particular! It’s great finding unique little spots like this and for the kids, it must have been particularly delightful. Hope they enjoyed the surrounding areas as well, Da Lat was one of my favourite parts of Vietnam
