TOP 13 Unusual Accommodations in Thailand via Airbnb

Airbnb makes finding accommodation less technical and boring, but creative and even exciting. Interesting and unusual housing options can be found not only around the world, but even in a single country. For example, in Thailand. Of course, the diversity is not so impressive, due to the peculiarities of the climate - it is not easy to make a house made of snow in the tropics, but still the choice is quite rich: from an ocean catamaran to a hobbit house and a Dutch mill. Personally, I was always attracted by tree houses and I almost spent the night in such a place near Chiang Mai once, but it did not grow together then. Hope next time.
