How Van Long Nature Reserve is unique?

Boat trip in Van Long

Compared to Tam Coc and Trang An that are more well-liked tourist attractions, Van Long Nature Reserve is way more primitive and fully untouched.

Rivers, mountains, grottoes, rice paddies, old houses, friendly locals, tiny-bamboo boat driving... all contribute to make Van Long a must-see for the travelers. Tourists who come to admire the reserve could have the chance to view rich wildlife, particularly the rarely-seen silver langur, inside the most bio-diversified wetland in Vietnam, in accordance with international and national research findings. It's very reasonable to organize Eco tours in this area.

As the home of many different kind of wildlife animals. It's very interesting to hear the Gibbons sound in the early morning.
