Crazy House in Dalat, Vietnam (Hằng Nga Guesthouse)



Crazy people having crazy fun in Crazy House.
So, yah.

The front entrance looks normal but wait till you visit the inside, you will be speechless... you'll wander and wonder.

There is a few reason why I included Crazy House in my itinerary.

Why visit The Crazy House
  • Inspiration of Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí (my favourite)
  • A touch of Salvador Dalí and Walt Disney (weird combo, I know)
  • From Wikipedia "A “fairy tale house”, the building’s overall design resembles a giant tree, incorporating sculptured design elements representing natural forms such as animals, mushrooms, spider webs and caves." Aren't you curious? Like seriously...!?!
  • 10 guestroom for travelers to book/stay (speechless..... would you stay here??)
  • Vietnamese architect Dang Viet Nga. She herself.
Dang Viet Nga "Wall of Fame".

Dang Viet Nga, a Vietnamese architect and daughter of Truong Chinh; a Vietnamese communist political leader and theoretician received her PhD in architecture from the University of Moscow. She start building the Crazy House or Hằng Nga Villa since 1990 and target to complete by 2020. Resembling Gaudi and Dali touch, perhaps those of Disney fairy tales too, Nga's design features odd and weird looking shapes, branches and trunks, split yet interconnected levels, twist and turn tunnels, animal theme rooms, wooden carved furniture among others. Her design challenges your logic  and concept of a house, one that is fun to visit.

Tree trunks out of nowhere.

Odd looking narrow bridge connecting from one building to another.

I don't think this building is ready (pretty sure of it) but somehow we found a way to enter and wander inside, seriously, it's very dangerous.

My sis wanted climb one of those snake like narrow bridge and I was so worried it might collapse (as it is still under construction; this specific area), so I kept screaming telling her not to go further... hysterically. Even my sis pun naik menyampah kat I. Hahhahahha..... drama giler. But seriously, the bridge railing is pretty small and low, the steps are uneven and of odd sizes, if one loses her balance... yikes! You know what I mean?!


The 10 rooms are open for public to stay, but I doubt you will be comfortable as people come as early as 9am to wander around and probably trying to peep into your room. Hahhahahhaa..... confirm terkezut kot!

The price per room per night range from USD25 to USD114 excluding breakfast. One may stay here for fun and for the experience.

Bear room.
