Crazy House, Da Lat

3.8
#1 of 23 in Sightseeing in Da Lat
Landmark Tourist Spot
Resembling a giant deviated tree, Crazy House represents an architectural marvel mixing artistic sensibilities of Antoni Gaudi, Salvador Dali, and Walt Disney. Opened in 1990, the bizarre five-storey structure was designed and constructed by a Vietnamese architect who incorporated many Expressionist themes and hired local craftsmen to make the building look organic and alive. You can visit up to ten themed guest rooms, each portraying a particular animal, such as eagle, tiger, or kangaroo. The maze-like building lacks proper security measures in certain areas, so pay attention to your belongings. Crazy House is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Da Lat Edition.

  • Might not be the most cultural experience but this is imagination realised and I for one am glad places like these exist. The children we saw were having a great time and being two adults we allowed o...  more »
  • Great day out, very beautiful and interesting. Feels surreal. Some bits are under construction but don't be scared off by that it's hardly noticeable.  more »
  • Thoroughly enjoyed the experience of climbing in through and over the Crazy House. Went a second time (several years later) and took my mother who was using a walking stick. The views are fantastic.  more »

  • A house like no other in Vietnam, designed in an eclectic 'nature'-y style and full of hidden niches and chambers. You can stroll around, climb winding stairs and visit weirdly designed formerly-hotel rooms. Probably the best place in the world to play hide and seek. A small Cafe in the garden is a nice and cozy place to relax a little and let the kids run around. Tickets are 40,000 dong for adults over 15 years old, 20,000 for children between the ages of 10-15. Under 10 is free.
  • Although very touristy, this place is definitely worth a visit. It's enormous and reminds me of something between Disneyland and Hobbiton. It appears as if you can rent a room here as well and they look fantastic. There's some ongoing construction as they are expanding. I don't think this place honours any kind of building or safety codes so watch out you or your children don't fall off one of the many small bridges.
  • Must visit for first timers to Dalat. Interesting architecture around the place and still expanding. I personally like the spiraling stairs that can go up to 2-3 stories high surrounding the place like a "highway" maze. A note to take care of your safety as there lacks safety barriers around the 'starcase' and one slip might land you a fall from considerable height.
  • Really unexpected and cool. Little pricey. Lot of places is under reconstruction but you are allowed to walk around. Rooms look cool and beds comfy. It might be great experience to spend night there. If you like this, you can visit 100 Roof Bar not far from here.
  • Love this place cool and amazing, first time to see these kind of style of hotel you will be crazy by seeing the rooms and toilet. I think not advisable for oldies to stay here. This is for young people only, because of the achetectural style very scary stairs specially when you are on top the stone building.

Where to stay in Da Lat

Long considered a summer retreat town, Da Lat offers plenty of accommodations, great and small, to choose from. Head down to the lake to find the most luxurious options in town, with old French colonial buildings featuring lake-view rooms, spas, and fine-dining restaurants, as well as some newer resort-style options offering ample grounds, golf courses, and scenic views. Head back from the water and the colonial areas to discover simpler hotels and guesthouses, with comfortable rooms, Wi-Fi, and breakfast included, as well as a number of dormitory-style hostels.
