  • Ba Be national park is huge natural reserve in North Vietnam. We were told it is more than 23000 hectares in size. One of the highlight is the Ba Be lake which is a natural lake amidst limestone cliffs. There are also few beautiful caves and waterfalls. So refreshing to go on a long boat ride on the lake. There are lot of trekking trails around Ba Be lake and these are a must do. There are also bicycle tours to go around the lake. The road is pretty good and hardly there is traffic. Visit the Ba Be tourism centre at the entrance of the national park to get more details.
  • Amazing place, i feel like TrangAn in Ninh Binh province combine with Moc Chau in Son La province. Some how like Sapa but with a great lake overthere!!!
  • Amazing lovely lake and park with local villages and lovely walks all around. The cave is absolutely amazing and only $1 to see it. A must do!
  • Wonderful! Hire a local guide and go to the jungle to see the beautiful sceneries and rural villages
  • Lovely place. Well worth seeing if you're visiting northern Vietnam.
