Hang Nga Guesthouse, Vietnam

The Hang Nga Guesthouse, affectionately nicknamed “the Crazy House,” is an offbeat inn in the popular tourist destination of Da Lat in the highlands of Central Vietnam. It bears some resemblance to the most whimsical works of Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi, but can also be described as a Disney cartoon palace that has been rearranged randomly and then partially melted. Some tourists come just to walk through the twisty tunnels, unusually decorated rooms, and hidden hollowed-out nooks. But it is also possible to spend the night in one of the guest rooms. The themed bedrooms are just as endearingly strange as the exterior of the building.
