Cat Tien is the most important nature reserve in Vietnam, with about 280 sq. miles of tropical rainforest and grassland. Forest Floor Lodge is a group of wooden huts set around a central administration and dining building. It's a weary trip to get there - about 4 hours drive from HCMC - and some of the facilities are a bit primitive: the electricity is turned off at night and part of the day.
However, if you want an authentic experience of the rainforest this is the only option you have. We went for expertly guided walks in the forest with Dr Roy Bateman (a former lecturer at Imperial College who helps run the place) and saw and heard the gibbons "singing" in the early morning.
