A Lovely drive out to the national park, really worth it. Lots of short walks and a nice drive through. Primate Rehabilitation centre and turtle sanctuary also worth visiting. Bring drinks and snacks

Here you can see butterflies but will probably kill a couple of thousand accidentally. The monkey interaction and rehabilitation center is worthwhile. You can BBQ with the locals, see some old trees and some decent caves. Just be sure to fill up on gas before...More

I visited the park for two days and I think it was a brilliant experience. This is a destination site: I think it would be worth going a bit out of your way. It's also close to the other popular spots around Tam Coc etc....More

The interesting part of this national park was that we got to ride our motorbikes inside of the park! Some other nice things to see were the caves (there were a few) as well as the 1000 year old tree! So cool!

We visited the park in April 2018 and also visited the primate and turtle rescue/rehabilation centres. We had a guide who was deeply passionate about nature and also, honest about the enormous challenges wildlife protection still faces in most of Vietnam. As he explained, the...More
