Hang Nga Villa is popularly known as Hang Nga Crazy House. It is located in 3 Huynh Thuc Khang, Da Lat City, Lam Dong province in the central Highlands of Vietnam. This is an unconventional building designed and constructed by architect Dang Viet Nga.
Described as a “fairy tale house”, the building’s overall design resembles a giant tree, incorporating sculptured design elements representing natural forms such as animals, mushrooms, spider webs and caves. Its architecture, comprising complex, organic, non-rectilinear shapes, has been described as expressionist.
Nga has acknowledged the inspiration of Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí in the building’s design, and visitors have variously drawn parallels between it and the works of artists such as Salvador Dalí and Walt Disney.
To help alleviate the financial burden associated with what was essentially a personal project, Nga expanded the building into a guesthouse, and opened the house to paid visits by tourists in late 1990. Since its opening, the building has gained recognition for its unique architecture, being highlighted in numerous guidebooks and listed as one of the world’s ten most “bizarre” buildings in the Chinese People’s Daily.
Opening time: 8.30am – 7.00pm daily
