Bangkok offers plenty of food, nightlife, and culture -- but venture south to Samut Prakan, a neighboring province of the bustling city where you'll find endless rice fields and mangrove forests. The only way to arrive at this secluded treehouse lodge is by boat, bike, or foot. We suggest staying in a treetop room overlooking the beautiful Chao Phraya River -- don't be surprised if you spot some exotic birds during your stay. This hidden ethereal retreat is nothing but delightful.
 
 
 
 

 
This is not a dream -- sleep amongst Africa's wild animals in their natural habitat. From the Chalkley, Tinyeleti, or Kingston treehouses at Lion Sands Game Reserve, take in endless views of the vast African landscape. The reserve has been family owned and operated since founder Guy Aubrey Chalkley purchased the land in 1933 as a result of his passion for conservation and protection of wilderness. 
 
 
 
 

 
Its dark clear skies make Moab one of the top destinations in the country for stargazing. And while anyone can go camping, Moab offers fully furnished luxury tent and tipi options right in the middle of the desert. Take in daytime views of Arches National Park and experience spectacular starry nights, all while your head is on the pillow.
 
 
 
 
 
Do as the Mongolians did: sleep in a yurt, but in central Portugal's mountains. The yurts stand on a platform beside a chestnut tree, providing all-day shade (hammocks and loungers provided). While you'll feel worlds away, the nearest village is only a 10-minute walk (wearing shoes is optional) and the two closest towns are just a 20-minute drive. Soak up the sun on a river beach nearby, take a stroll in the hills, or dine in one of the country restaurants.
 
 
 
What to wear on your starry sojourn: A lightweight caftan and Panama hat are the perfect pieces to keep you styled and protected from the rays. The ikat weekender tote is the ideal size to carry all of your travel necessities. And lastly, keep it simple with accessories on your outdoor adventures -- this wide channel elephant ring is the finishing touch to this exotic-chic ensemble.
