Upper level of Crazy House, Dalat, Vietnam
Vietnam

Crazy House is a common nickname for the hotel with peculiar, eccentric, intricate and somewhat creepy design built by the famous architectural engineer Mrs. Dang Nga (its original name given by the author was the Moon Villa). The twists and turns of Mrs. Nga’s imagination had been inspired by flora and fauna and, as some experts speculate, by the work of Gaudi. The construction has begun in 1990 and still hasn’t been completed (you can clearly observe that in the panorama), though there are many people who have expressed a desire to stay in this hotel. Another interesting feature is the fact that due to the 14 years that Mrs. Nga spent in Moscow, visitors of the Crazy House may listen to Russian romances which are often played within the territory of the hotel.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
