This rather unusual accommodation option fascinated our children (and the child in both of us).
In huge mango trees high up on the sand-bar at Nanshan, a number of substantial treehouses have been built.
Each has bedrooms, outdoor living areas and look out over the South China Sea.
The treeshouses felt a little bit damp and musty, and in true China style, we only found out about these because we went to nanshan and went to the sand-bar and physically bumped into the treehouses. Tourism marketing in China remains largely around the level of that in North Korea. Sad, because there are many places worth exploring and places worth staying at, but no-one knows about them.
The treeshouses are close together but far enough apart to have privacy if you only want one of them. There is a gas-canister for cooking, but the toilet is down about 50 metres, next to a open-air restaurant which was deserted during the hour we were wandering around here.
It is an idyllic spot, but expect to have visitors from the park wandering around your 'private space'.
