The treehouse hiding in BangkokBang Krachao Island, Bangkok

The tuk-tuk choked, concrete-clad streets of Bangkok don’t exactly scream of eco-friendly escapades, but Bangkok Tree House sits in a green lung in the midst of the smog. Bunk down for a night in the tropical treetops of Bang Krachao Island. This boutique hotel offers four unique rooms, each with a nod to nature. In keeping with their eco-friendly mission, there’s no fumigation, so it’s a bug’s life all round, but the setting more than makes up for any creepy crawlies.

If you’re a nature-lover, the View with a Room is pure paradise – a bamboo open-air villa set seven metres above the ground with only the sun and stars for light. During the day borrow a bike (they’re free) and explore the jungle, waterways and temples. When you return take a dip in the natural swimming pond then head to the 24-hour ice-cream bar for a cool treat.


get there

To get to Bangkok, fly with AirAsia. There aren’t any roads directly onto the hotel, so you’ll need to walk or boat the last bit of your journey.
