10 best tree house hotels in the world 

If you ever feel bored of beachside villas or mountain-view resorts, you might want to consider choosing a tree house for your next holiday.

You are not going to find them in someone's backyard, though; in fact, the best treetop accommodations are found in some of the world's most exotic tourist destinations, such as Bali.
