Dalat: Treehouses and Psychics

Since being more active and being more creative are our priorities when traveling, it makes sense we stopped in the French-influenced town of Dalat.


After a 6 hour mini-bus ride through the country-side, we arrived in Dalat in the early morning. We headed over to Crazy House to check-in to the Eagle Room.

Crazy House is a fantasy-inspired hotel reminiscent of Dali and Hobbiton. The main buildings are giant, concrete hollow trees with rooms carved within the structure. Each room is specifically themed around an animal. Our Eagle Room had two bedrooms tucked away in nooks opposite of each other. You can spend an hour or more exploring all the passages and tunnels throughout the complex. As a guest, be ready for tourist to try and peek into your room. During the day vacant rooms are open for viewing by the public.


We napped in our Hobbit holes and then set off to explore the small town. During our walk we came upon 100 Roofs Cafe, a coffee house built in a very similar style to our Crazy House. We meandered in for a tea and Viet coffee and ended up meeting the architect of the building.

Turns out this blind, very old Vietnamese man was the lover of the architect of our Crazy House and was clearly inspired by her work so built this own Crazy Coffee House. No longer an engineer, he now spends his time conversing in French with tourists and giving psychic readings when his energy allows him to.


He read our palms and demeanor and assessed our personalities and shared his thoughts on where our futures would lead towards - My friend, practically fluent in French, relayed most of the conversation. Luckily for me, I will marry a wealthy man and have two children who will bring me glory... I'll take it!
