Crazy House, Da Lat
(3.8/5 based on 1,900 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Totally crazy designed House with plenty of imaginative and whimsical staircases and passageways and spaces in many floors both interior and exterior. You must not suffer from fear of heights or claustrophobia. And one should avoid having young children with.

  • 每个来大叻的旅客相信都会到访这里,我觉得非常适合小朋友来玩玩,还是很有意思。可惜大叻常下雨,我们来看的时候也是阴天,很难看到真正的样子。弯弯曲曲的小楼梯互相衔接每个不同的楼层。远处的彩色楼房更值得我们去看。40000盾的入场券,相当于人民币10几元,晚上7pm结束。 
  • Of course this is a touristic place, but it's fun to walk around, see the hotel/hostel rooms and enjoying the city view. There's a entrance fee!

  • Had great expectations of place before visit. Area is small. Hence, taking a good picture of the place is tough. Covered the whole ground, taking many pictures in 20 mins! That's how small the place is. Interesting structure, but I wouldn't consider it great. Entrance fee was 40,000.
  • I didn't stay here overnight so can't comment on what that is like. But as a visitor during the day, I really enjoyed my time. It is a little expensive and is full of tourists (if you see a bus arriving when you get there - perhaps go and grab a coffee nearby and come back when it's a bit quieter). It's a really unique place, though, and something a bit different for Vietnam. The vision of the architect is beautiful and I love the way you can walk around and explore all the nooks and crannies for yourself - not just observe it from the outside.
  • Even though it was raining fairly heavily when we finally made it to The Crazy House it almost made it better. A lot of horrible rude foreigners pushing past you to get to the little pathways. This annoyed me immensely. But. The design of the buildings are amazing to look at, even places that they were still working on were open to exploration. I would not recommend bringing children unless you're prepared to guard them like the last dollar on earth. There are some pretty precarious steps and ladders, that would be so tempting to a child. I loved it. It is usually busy.
  • Interesting place to go. Maybe you will have to do it several times, because even if they show you a map it's really easy to get lost. But it's also the point of it. I went many times around because every time I thought I was missing a part of it. Also if you go in the late afternoon you will be able to catch up an amazing view of the sunset and the city.
  • Stunning views. Insane architecture. A must see in Dalat.
