The dreamy city of Da Lat Vietnam is famous for its cool climate, immense pine forest, and ancient villas with French architectural style. Amongst these villas, one might find themselves in awe and surprised with the unique architecture and mysterious beauty of The Crazy House, or also known as Hang Nga Villa.

The Crazy House is located at No. 3, Huynh Thuc Khang Street, Ward 4, Da Lat city, Lam Dong province. It was built in 1990, and the area is about 2000 square meters.
The Crazy House is a project of architect Dang Viet Nga, who is also the owner of this mansion.

Dang Viet Nga returned to Da Lat, lived and worked from 1983 to the present.
She started the project in 1990 and it’s still in construction at the present.

Best things to see at Da Lat Crazy House
1. The design
We were impressed with the design of the Dalat Crazy House. It’s extraordinary, wild, and interesting.
One of the most interesting and special features of this villa is its structure. From the ceiling to the door, all were designed arbitrarily. The windows also have strange shapes and placed in the protrusions of the oval wall.
Although the design does not follow any rules or patterns, it still offers a harmonious look.
2. The stairs
One of the experiences that we love at The Crazy House is going by the stairs. These spiral stairs lead to several areas and buildings of the House.
Although some parts of the stairs are quite difficult to move, it was still a special experience for us.
3. The rooms at Da Lat Crazy House
Hang Nga Villa includes Tree Stump Hotel and Spider Web Castle, which are two tree trunks made of concrete.
The rooms here have unique and interesting names: Tiger, Bear, Eagle, Monkey, etc.
4. The sketches & stories
We found several sketches, designs, and life stories of the architect Dang Viet Nga.
