    Nice Emerald Green Lake surrounded by mountains drowned under the tropical vegetation. 2 nights at Hoa his Homestay (friendly, beautiful rooms and excellent cooking). Tour of 2 h by boat with walk to the pond of angels and ride ATV 2 h in the cool (16 h - 18 h). Virgin nature, very warm people: tourism has not yet not its ravages. A visit not to be missed...

    Seemed a cool place, we just drove through on our Tigit Motorbikes. A stunning place for sure. It looked a bit run down in terms of tourist activities so we were not inclined to get bogged down in a tour. But since this day, I have heard the boat tours are good.

    Beautiful place to be quiet by the water. Or watch the farmers plow or work the land. Roads are a bit rough around the lake but good after you get out of the park. Come during the festival stay for the tranquility.

    Not insanely beautiful or exciting, but a very nice place to kick back for a few days. Go off the beaten track and explore, you *probably* won't get lost.
