Bangkok is a sprawling city, but this treehouse is located on the artificially made island of Bang Krachao, which has the nickname of the green lung of Bangkok due to its lung-like shape, flora and lack of cars. The accompanying eco-hotel ensures that your stay minimises ecological impact, as well as supporting the local community.

    The winding stairs of this magical treehouse takes you up into the trees. The rooms are stunning, as is the view.
