  • We visited ba be national park for one night and one day as part of a tour we were on. It was extremely beautiful. We took a boat trip, and went kayaking on the lake. It was very peaceful, and the views were breathtaking. We also visited a bat cave, home to 1000 bats. It was a really cool cave. I would love to have spent more time in ba be national park, to really experience all it has to offer. One day is definitely not long enough. I would highly recommend this place.
  • Interesting park where you can have a boat tour around the lake. You also have the possibility to discover a huge cavern located a few minutes away by motorbike or car. There is also a beautiful waterfall near by.
  • Nice park were you can walk, swim, row... and very calm and not many tourists. a place to see
  • Very nice place to visit at least once in a life. It takes about 3 hours on a boat though out the lake. If you are a photomania, it is a right place to go. The road to there is good except some parts are under reconstruction but not so bad. I drove myself there with my family to enjoy there twice.
  • Lake activities a bit scammy but great natural environment, especially if you have a bike or motorcycle to explore some really beautiful local valleys and villages
