  • Great gem in Vietnam if you like wildlife

    Vincent B - Oct 17, 2019

    We had an amazing time with Quoc on his boat on the Dong Nai river. He was mindful and funny, explaining some interesting fact about this beautiful and peaceful place. We saw many animals and a incredible sunset. Definitely recommend if you are looking to discover the river and its wildlife with a passionate guide !

  • Awesome!

    Tina P - Jul 07, 2019

    Great place for people who are into nature and want to see VN in different way from the other tourists. Not many wild animals but lot of birds and ancient trees and plants. I felt refesh and totaly relax and love nature more here. Accomodations is basic and some unwanted friends like frogs, insects may visit you in your rooms but no matter.. its nature.

  • Thank you Johnny

    Lisa031992 - May 28, 2019

    As 2 real Dutchies we rented mountain bikes and had a very active day in the National Park (20km cycling, 10km walking). We saw different kinds of monkeys while cycling and walking. Once at the crocodile lake we had lunch with a beautiful view at the lake and saw many crocodiles. All with Johnny Tours. Definitely worth the trip if you want to escape the busy city life!

  • Can do on your own, but you'll see so much more with a guide

    Peter M - Mar 07, 2019

    This was a birding trip with friends. The forest is fantastic and we managed to see lots of species. Thank you Johnny for giving us a very good tour's program.

  • Great few days with plenty of monkeys

    untyandy2 - Dec 05, 2018

    We spent the day in the park on pushbikes, saw lots of birds up-to about 11am when it went pretty quiet. Also saw a family of macaques pretty close up. Despite what some of the reviews say, you can certainly see lots of birds if you get there early enough, have your own binoculars, and a bird guide book helps. The best place for seeing birds so far in Vietnam and we've been here 5 weeks. Then explored the rest of the park (just the paved Bits). Really lovely place and hardly anyone around which made a nice change. Most of the road is shaded by trees so not hard going even on a hot day.

  • Best thing in this place is birding

    Bao Nguyen - Aug 08, 2018

    for travelers and birds watchers, the nearest old jungle to ho chi minh city . enjoy the experience to walk inside the jungle between the old tall trees , hears nothing but the nature. birds, monkeys all are singing with wonderful orchestra symphony

  • Real nature experience

    Martino012 - May 27, 2019

    Best national park in Dong Nai City's environs. Not as convenient as NPs in other countries as you expected but enough activities to keep you busy and excited if you are a nature person.

  • Active day!

    Andy T - Mar 07, 2018

    Really enjoyed this place, saw many birds, a few snakes, a crocodile & other animals. Didn’t see any monkeys so went to the endangered primates sanctuary which was very interesting. Stayed in accommodation on the other side of the river (River Lodge) which was very good with cheerful, helpful staff. If you’re doing an early morning trip you’d be best staying one night on the National Park side. Would recommend a visit here

  • Great for rare mammals

    Duangrat W - Jan 07, 2018

    Booked this tour with Johnny. Everything went smooth. We went there with 4 children. The children love the bike trails and the big tree. There are so many butterflies on the trail. And in one of the jungle walking trail we saw a snake passed by.

  • A lot of animals

    leanoraindia - Dec 29, 2017

    For those who have been lucky enough to stay at Green Hope lodge, Luan is a knowledgeable & much loved host. The good news is he is now sharing his passion for the forest & conservation taking small groups or individuals into the National park. Highly recommended, you will come away with a new understanding and love of this magic place.

phan thiet ta cu mountain tour | 49 meters buddha

Ta cu mountain is one of the highest mountains in Binh Thuan Province - 649 meters From the top of the mountain, there is a spectacular view of the dragon fruit farms and rice paddies below. In the 1870s and 1880s, a Buddhist month named Tran Huu Duc led a group of Buddhist faithful in the construction of the Linh Son Truong Tho Pagoda. After his death in 1887, a group of his followers built the lower Long Doan Pagoda. Then in 1958, a man named Truong Dinh Tri began construction of the 49 meter-long, seven meter-high reclining Buddha, as well as three additional smaller Buddha statues. There is a cave near the statues which has been named the Forefathers Cave. At the bottom of the cave is a small stream, which disappears into the cave floor. It is inside this cave that Tran Huu Duc spent much of his life time in meditation.
