Hue, Vietnam
Bach Ma National Park

A true natural gem in Vietnam.

Bach Ma National Park - the old French hill station in Hue - is a must-see for all nature lovers visiting Vietnam. Enjoy the tranquility of this spot by taking a stroll through the hiking trails, jungle walk and mountain ranges offered at this 40,000 hectare site. Incidentally, about one fifth of the entire country’s plants can be found here, including hundreds of medicinal plants. The park is teeming with wildlife as well and if you’re lucky, you might even spot the Sao La, a rare breed of Antelope that can only be found in Vietnam. Bird enthusiasts will be thrilled to learn that there are several kinds of birds that can be found here, including parakeets, herons, and even the Edwards’ pheasant, a rare bird that was considered to be extinct for decades. Of course, in order to observe these birds grace the park with their elegance, one has to be at the park at first light. You won’t have to worry about getting there though, as the park lies midway between Da Nang and Hue and is easily accessible via affordable tourist buses. Hike, swim, camp – an endless amount of activities can be done, while immersing yourself in the stunning outdoors of the Bach Ma National Park.
