1. Treetop eco retreat (from USD 118)

Are you a daring and unconventional traveler? Do you love spending time outdoors? If so, you may want to check out this treetop eco-house. Between the massive floor to ceiling windows in this house and potted plants, you will feel as if you are living outside. However, the microwave appliances in the kitchen will remind you that you are not actually living in the wilderness. Should you like to have a change of pace, you can travel about 5 km (3.1 mi) to the Hastings Street, a famous shopping street, and sample dishes at the many restaurants and cafes in the area.
