Even if you consider yourself a full-fledged urbanite, living in a perpetually busy, fast-paced city like Singapore can really take its toll on you. Considering our hectic schedules and demanding lifestyles, sometimes all we need is to get away every once in a while. After all, it’s no secret that there is no better way to energise and refuel than by immersing yourself in nature.
When you’re travelling, the lodging you choose can make or break your vacation just as much — if not more than — the destination itself. While we love staying at some of the most luxurious hotels in the world, sometimes all we want is a little bit of an adventure — think private islands, medieval castles, safari lodges and treetop houses. Thanks to apartment rental services such as Airbnb, staying at these unique accommodations is as simple as tapping on a button.
While some of Airbnb’s most wished for listings may be tucked away in far-flung locales, you don’t need to travel halfway across the world to indulge in a jungle retreat. Our favourite beach destination, Bali, is also home to a world-renowned bamboo treetop house that has put itself on the wishlists of travellers and celebrities alike. Of course, if you’re yearning for an escape away from the region, there are many other options in Atlanta, South Carolina and sunny Hawaii.
If you’ve always wanted to fulfil your childhood dreams of living like Tarzan and Jane, here are 5 beautiful treetop houses around the world that make truly unique hideaways.
