Crazy HouseDalat, Vietnam

Get set for a kooky kip at the Crazy House in Dalat, the charming French-inspired mountain city popular with Vietnamese honeymooners. Described as a work Gaudi may have created if he'd dropped some acid, the Crazy House (its original name is Hang Nga Villa) stretches the boundaries of architectural creativity, then abandons them altogether.

Tunnels, walkways and ladders connect a labyrinth of rooms brought together using wire, wood and a generous coating of concrete to resemble a whimsical tree house. It all sounds a bit ramshackle, but has architectural credibility. Owner Dang Viet Nga, daughter of former Vietnamese president Truong Chinh, has a PhD from the University of Architecture in Moscow, and her guesthouse is a continually evolving labour of love.
