Escape from the UAE for a radical change of scenery in the trees
With our fast-paced lives, all commuting, crazy hours and competitive busyness, it’s easy to see why many UAE residents crave the simple life from time to time. For your next trip, why not skip the city break or beach vacay, and unplug amongst the trees?

Picnic then sleep under the stars, safe from predators below – yes, as the name suggests, big cats are your neighbours when you stay at the Chalkley Treehouse at Lion Sands. Your stay is free from electricity and WiFi (there is radio communication should you need anything), but with the added benefit of watching wildlife close up from the safety of your luxuriously decorated platform.
Secluded Intown Treehouse
Atlanta, GA, United States

More than 147,000 people have added this urban retreat to their wish-list, so you might have to wait a while for your time in the trees.
The 7th Room
A treehouse like no other, The 7Th Room is a truly modern interpretation, with panoramic glass walls, sleek design inside and out, and incredible touches like a net for stargazing and the photograph of trees that covers the underside of the building, making it appear almost invisible. Suspended from pines, this space is one of seven at the Treehotel, where you can try ice fishing and a moose safari or just a traditional sauna.
