I remember reading about about Madame Nga's 'Crazyhouse' in the National Geographic a few years ago, and have wanted to visit ever since. I was not disappointed; it was the single best thing I did in Dalat, and possibly even the whole of Vietnam. Such an amazingly imaginative building, it seems it is not so much 'designed', as growing out... More

It certainly is a crazy house - but well worth seeing - watch children if they are with you, as parts could be a bit dangerous. Pleased we went though - very interesting architecture.

This place is a labyrinth with many interesting rooms within the interconnecting buildings. It's quite a challenge to navigate through the low ceilings and steep steps in certain areas. Watch out for the kids! Some places like the bridges and ladders are dangerous even for adults. You will either love or hate it but come see it for yourself!

This was our first stop on our easy rider tour. The place has been turned into a hotel, and a magnificent one. Every room is a piece of art, made by a twisted and creative mind. It has pasages and overhead stairs where you can see far into dalat. The only down side for us was the construction during the... More

Yes, one of many tourist trappy places we ventured to, but they're often worth it. This def was because its just to plain weird to miss. Thanks to our guide Nick and the folks at Luxury Travel Vietnam who got us there for quick peek but took care of getting us set up in a more conventional hotel, because as... More

This place was truly fantastic. I felt like a kid again running around, taking pictures, and trying to peer inside every window and door. They are still adding onto it and it will be even more fantastic when finished. Not to safe for young kids though, so pay close attention. Many places to fall and get hurt. Loved the design... More

Fun way to spend an hour or so, getting lost in the Crazy House, just watch out when the Russian Tourist coaches arrive, the pushing and shoving gets quite violent. Free entry and easy walk from our hotel made this one of the highlights of our visit.

The architecture of this house is unbelievable. It was built by the daughter of a former president and is still having additions built on to it. It is a must see attraction. To find it, you need only to ask people where the Crazy House is because there are no signs directing you to it. Take an hour to check... More

Simply bizarre. Staircases to nowhere, rooms somehow fitted in to an overall architecture that is baffling. Definitely worth an hour or so to visit whilst in Dalat. Kids had a great time. I have not seen anything like this anywhere else and cannot see it getting past local building regulations in most western countries!

A fun place to visit. You can easily spend an hour here exploring all the nooks and crannies - and they're still adding on. A really wild place you don't want to miss.
