Tours and Activities

We have a spectacular range of caving tours available in and around the rugged scenic beauty of the 200 hectare Phong Nha Ke-Bang National Park, a twilce recognised UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In addition there are many activities available at and around the farmstay:

  • Explore Phong Nha Cave by boat from the boat station in Phong Nha.
  • See the spectacular jungle scenery & fascinating limestone formations of the karst mountains.
  • Take a walk in the jungle of the Botanic Gardens and swim in the waterfall
  • Observe the varied wild life - you may even come across a troop of rare Black Langur monkeys.
  • Ride a bicycle along the winding tracks weaving through the rice paddy fields and through tiny quaint villages where you can stop to interact with the friendly locals, visit local markets & swim in the clear streams nearby.
  • Take a ride out to the "Pub with Cold Beer" in Bong Lai for the freshest chicken lunch, the best peanut sauce in the word (probably) and as the name suggests, cold beer! Relax in a hammock with a view over the countryside and interact with this local family.
  • Learn about the history of the American War and visit the memorial sites that the locals hold sacred.
  • Observe traditional farming activities including ploughing with buffalo and rice harvesting, when seasonally available.
And after a hard day's adventuring, return to Phong Nha Farmstay where you can relax with a cold beer or cocktail on the terrace. Watch the local farmers returning home with their buffaloes, ploughs over their shoulders while the sun sets over the paddy fields which roll away to the river & beyond to the rugged mountains on the skyline. We have live music 3 times a week that starts at sunset.

Then wander down to the restaurant for a delicious dinner, then feel free to relax, listen to the band, watch an outdoor movie or enjoy game of pool and maybe a dip in the pool before retiring to your comfortable bed for a good night’s sleep.
