Crazy House (Hang Nga Guesthouse) in Dalat city

Crazy House Dalat

This is the surreal 'Crazy House' - an otherworldly holiday home where guests can experience a fairytale come true. The building's organic, expressionist-style shapes are reminiscent of animals, mushrooms and spider webs. Architect Dang Viet Nga has said she was inspired by the natural environment surrounding the city of Da Lat.

The house boasts ten themed bedrooms, it has been said to draw influence from eccentric artists Salvador Dali and Antoni Gaudi as well as from the fantasy look of the Disney castle. Nga's design was brought to life by non-professional local craftsmen. Inside, the themed rooms are filled with quirky and handcrafted furniture.

Few right angles are found throughout the building, whose exterior resembles a banyan tree, with unevenly shaped windows and branch-like structures that 'grow' along its walls and rise above the roof into the sky. The house was built in 1990 on a plot of land nearly 2000 square metres in size.

Sightseers are welcome to tour the building during the day for a small fee, you can wander around as you please; clearly, getting lost is part of the experience or you can book a room - stay overnight and see what waking up in Alice’s Wonderland feels like.
