Architectural outlier and presidential daughter, Dang Viet Nga built this unique structure entirely from personal and private funds. Not only that, but the local municipal government fought her every step of the way. But she didn’t give up. She pushed on to realize her dream - a bizarre and passionate fantasy. Taking inspiration from organic growth, the hotel resembles a giant Banyan Tree. There are 5 levels and each room has a different theme. The world’s only expressionist hotel, the architect used hand drawings instead of blueprints and non-skilled artisans to build it. An enlivening experience, or bad mushroom trip – you decide if you choose to stay here. As far as I can tell, there is not much in the way of services but who needs spas and golf courses when you have models of giraffes with glowing eyes, toadstool chairs and talking trees to entertain you?
