Mankind came from trees and now we’re returning to them

Gone are the days when boltholes in treetops were for children only. Now tourists holidaying in forests will find tailor-timbered restaurants and designer hotels in the branches of huge trees. It makes for a very special vacation experience, but as with most other types of holiday, treehousing can also be enjoyed at a budget level where you carry the accommodation on your back.
