Pepper farm

It only makes sense to take a visit to the beautiful nature the Island, more than 50% of which is national park, has to offer. Though there are many forest paths around, it is highly recommended to have a walk around in the north, about 5 km (3 miles) west from Ganh Dau. An easy walk here will be enough for you to enjoy the gorgeous virgin forest. Don’t forget to keep your eye out for many lovely animals and birds of the forest. Alova Gold cruise halong bay
