10 Awesome Tree Houses You Can Stay In


4
The Gibbon Experience, Laos

Spending the night in a tree can be exhilarating by itself, but if you're looking for a true adventure, the Gibbon Experience is the tree house for you. After arriving in the Bokeo Nature Preserve in Laos, guides will fit you with a climbing harness, and you'll travel with them by zip line to your tree house. There are two different tree houses in the preserve; the waterfall tree house is located above a swimming hole, while the other one overlooks several valleys and has excellent sunset views. The thatched-roof tree houses are rustic, open-air structures without much in the way of amenities, but they're located high in the jungle canopy, an excellent spot to view the gibbons, small Laotian apes.
