We visited here after being pretty disappointed with the paradise cave. It was around a 20 minute motorbike ride from the main town area. It was only a 40K entrance fee and 4K to park the motorbike. There are a few options for the routes,...More

What we prefered is actually driving the scooter through the forrest on the way in then out of the garden. Beautiful scenery. It is not a garden but a jungle you can take a walk through. They say the short walk is 1,5 hours and...More

Beside the low entrance price, this place is worth a visit because it is run by the national park rangers that protect the park. It has 4-5 great trails for hiking, my favorite is the one that take you down to the waterfall. The food...More

The botanic gardens are well worth a visit. There are 2 loop routes, we took route 2 as route 1 can only be taken with a guide. Directions and signage around the loop were confusing. We met a few other people hiking who were also...More

Not a botanic garden as such but a pleasant walk through the jungle to a waterfall. The 40 min walk took us about 15 minutes with kids and most people seem to do the 3 hour walk in less than half that so we regretted...More

We were running out of time and so only made a quick stop at the Botanic Gardens. We took a quick walk to the waterfall but you can go swimming at it and there's also a swimming hole. There are also some animals and other...More

The botanic garden is an amazing jungle area with some partially paved walking paths. Not for those who have trouble walking, obviously. We went for the 3 hour route and spent about 2 hours completing it, enjoying the water well, amaaaazing view point and stunning...More

Small trek for some nice scenery and a chill session at a waterfall. If you're cruising the park, its certainly worth the 40k dong for entry.
