Unique Places To Stay At When Travelling Through Vietnam

Vietnam’s beautiful landscapes, rich history and distinct culture attract travellers, from budget to luxury, from all over the world. And because of it’s ever-growing popularity, each year we see more and more hotels, hostels and homestays springing up.

If you’re heading over to this part of Indochina and looking for out-of-the-ordinary accommodation, Creative Boom has compiled a list of the six most unusual stays and we’re highlighting three of them here.

If you’re looking for someplace with great landscape views…

Topas Ecolodge in Sapa (Pic credit: topasecolodge.com)

Topas Ecolodge, Sapa

Heading inland, deep into the mountains near the borders with Laos and China, is the market town of Sapa. Popular for wildlife, trekking and the chance to interact with local hill tribes, it is above all known for some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. To get a real break from it all, stay in an Ecolodge that employs generations of locals and uses sustainable materials. Topas Ecolodge bungalows have no TV, no swimming pool and occasionally no power supply, but provide a beautiful, peaceful base for exploring. When you take a deep breath in the fresh morning you’ll find you couldn’t ask for more.

Address: No. 1B, Alley 12/2/5 Dang Thai Mai Street, Tay Ho District, Hanoi, Vietnam

If you’re looking for someplace wacky…

The Crazy House, Dalat

Nowhere in this fantastic country, or arguably the world, will you find a stranger place to stay than The Crazy House in Dalat, in the Southern mountains of Vietnam. This hotel is a tourist destination in itself with visitors flocking to wander the odd pathways, climb the never-ending stairs or peak a glimpse at the oddly themed rooms. Originally called The Hang Nga Guesthouse, the highly unconventional structure of connected buildings, lush with fauna, was designed and constructed by local architect Đặng Việt Nga and is still undergoing ever-stranger extensions all the time. There have been comparisons to both Disney and Dali, but this place is truly original. Perfect for the curious, but not for the faint hearted, the secret passages wind high and narrow like something from a dream.

Address: 03 Huynh Thuc Khang St., Ward 4, Dalat City, Vietnam
