Dong Hoi Farmstay

Posted by Drifter1dc on 18/11/2010 at 20:37

Last year I stayed at this wonderful farmstay near th Phong Nha Khe Bang area. Bich and Ben have created a great get away for people who love to go off the beaten track. If that is your cup of tea and you want a taste of rural village life in Viet Nam this is your place.

Yes there are boats waiting at the docks for the trip up river to the caves, very easy to arrange at the ticket counter. Many touts at the caves though be aware. When the ladies keep pestering me to buy, buy buy I always try to get close and faux kiss them and they run away....my way of scaring off the sellers. Hehehe!
