The Crazy House
If like me, you are a lover of all things absurd and ridiculous, you need to pay a visit to Crazy House or Hang Nga Guesthouse, one of the strangest houses which looks like some giant tree. The architect of this strange house is Hang Nga, a wonderful woman whose father was the President of Vietnam back in some 80's.

Feb 11: Day 2: Nha TrangEarly morning I got up to catch my train to Nha Trang. I found a Xe Om (motorbike taxi) outside on the main road and bargained with him to go to the railway station for 50,000 VND.This SE6 train starts at 9.00am and reaches Nha Trang at around 4.30pm. You can see some real good landscapes (as seen in the video) if you book a soft seat. Its also cheaper than soft bed.Saigon was hot. Nha Trang was cold with drizzles and cloud cover for almost the entire day.The Nha Trang beach is one of the best I have ever been to. (I've used the word 'been' and not 'seen'). I was in Nha Trang for some 2 days. I went to the beach "6 times". Even once at 5.30am to catch the sunrise. Si Si.. Vietnam has an east coast. No sunsets.
Here we landed Da lat airport. The view is so serene and calm but suddenly, a cool air banged, gave the feeling of reaching a hill station. Da lat is southern Vietnam's Central Highlands, popularly known as the "City of Eternal Spring" for its distinctive temperate climate. It was developed as a resort by the French in the early 1900s, and many reminders of its colonial heritage remain.The hotel has arranged the cab to pick us. The city was 45 min drive away. The way was so beautiful surrounded by pine woods and colourful gardens. The route was somewhat a hilly journey. After check-in, We bought a city map and got all set to explore the city and its attractions. The city is around a beautiful lake and golf course, and surrounded by hills, pine forests, lakes and waterfalls. We first visited the flower park. The park was neat, maintained and relaxing. It had huge variety of different species of plants and roses. It was a nice walk across it. We spend almost an hr or two and headed towards a cafe for a nice sip of coffee. Da lat is famous for its coffee and i have passion for it. "A perfect combination". There was a cafe just opp to our hotel "Len's cafe" where we spent a nice evening.
