I stayed at the longhouse for 3 nights and this was pure holiday for me! The longhouse is directly at the jungle next to a lake where you can swim and take a kayak and so on and the way to the main entrance of the national park is not far. During my stay I did some kayaking, mountain biking and hiking (the wild Gibbon tour is in my eyes overrated whereas the visit of the batcave organised by the longhouse is a really nice and just beautiful trail) and with all that George, the manager, and his staff were really helpful. The food is really really good and the beds are surprisingly comfortable.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Enjoy a comfortable night's stays surrounded by the jungles of Cat Tien National park (only 3 Hours from Ho Chi Minh) in our Longhouse. The Ta Lai longhouse is an adventure heaven overlooking Cat Tiens forests and steeped in the culture and history of the S'Tieng and Ma minorities. Pitched on the top of a hill, overlooking a lake our traditional longhouse offers a great jump of point to explore the surrounding areas. We offer a range of activities such as trekking, mountain biking, kayaking,animal watching and much more. If you don't fancy this then chill out and just relax in a hammock or swim in our lake only meters away. We have Morden facilities with showers, hot water, toilets, high speed internet for those who need to stay connected and a kitchen cooking amazing food!We collaborate with WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) by supporting a fund set up for various community based projects running in Ta Lai and Cat Tien. Your stay will directly contribute to helping develop these! We hope to see you soon!Ta Lai Longhouse Team ... more less
