the Crazy House

this is a hotel designed by dang viet nga, an avant-garde artist who got away with more weirdness than she otherwise would because she was the daughter of ho chi mihn's successor.


the guesthouse is hard to describe. it's a hotel designed to look like a giant tree having sex with two giraffes. at least that's what i saw when i looked at it. there were a couple of other animal forms mixed in there as well. the layout was a bizzare mix of twisting passages and ladders to precarious rooms.


there was really nothing else like it in vietnam. the locals just call the place "the crazy house."

    I wish I could mark this whole set as a Fave. Thanks for presenting these photos, and the great narration to go with them.
    I was a child in the 60's, with my older Brothers in 'Nam. I have heard many stories of the Country, good and bad. It is nice to see the modern Vietnam. Thanks!
    ...and this is some Hotel!
