Visiting Bangkok - Our Green suggestion Bangkok Treehouse (Green Hotel & Organic Restaurant)

Located in the green zone of the Bang Nampheung region of Greater Bangkok, the Bangkok Treehouse is surrounded by mangrove palms, coconut plantations and singing cicadas. 

From tree top rooms that overlook the Chao Phraya river to soaring treehouses that are designed after birds nests, the accommodations here are truly unique, yet the hotel's steadfast commitment to the environment is what makes this one of the most desirable places to stay in Bangkok for the most green of green travelers.
