Top 13 Unusual Housing in Thailand via Airbnb

Airbnb makes housing searches non-technical andboring, but creative and even exciting. Interesting and unusual housing options can be found not only throughout the world, but even in a single country. For example, in Thailand. Of course, the variety is not so impressive, due to the climate - it’s hard to make any kind of snow house in the tropics, but the choice is quite rich: from an ocean catamaran to a hobbit house and a Dutch mill. I personally have always been attracted to houses in the trees, and once I almost spent the night in such a place near Chiang Mai, but did not grow together then. I hope for the next time.
