Bangkok Tree House is a unique experience that is not for just anyone. It’s a beautiful place to stay, and a truly unforgettable experience to stay in a treehouse. But be sure to read the fine print before deciding to stay. The Tree House does not fumigate to get rid of insects and other bugs. The breeze from the river keeps things cool, so air-conditioning is not necessary for public spaces. Small air-conditioning units are available in the nests to ensure comfortable sleep with minimal environmental impact. Bangkok Tree House has outdoor showers in most nests. The Tree House is not reachable by car, only on foot, bike, or boat. This makes the area calm and quiet. It’s a great place to stay for those who love nature.
