Villas in the Bach Ma National Park
What is now Bach Ma National Park was originally ‘discovered’ by the French, who turned the upper levels of a mountain into a resort of well over a hundred villas during the 1930s. It was abandoned in the fifties, but much of the infrastructure survives, and a few of the ruined villas have been restored to provide accommodation for visitors.
Three large villas grouped on the upper slopes of the mountain together with a Vietnamese restaurant. The villa rooms are mostly dormitories in very basic standard, furniture is minimal and most rooms lack en-suite facilities. There is hot water for showering, but no telephones or baths.
Closer to the summit, the ‘Morin Hotel’ has conventional rooms with en-suite shower rooms. There is a small restaurant on the ground floor where a very limited menu of basic food is served. Cooking, cleaning and other services are supplied by forest rangers. All accommodation, again, was in basic standard as the result of frequent rain and very high humidity for much of the year.

Activities: Offering great hiking trails, waterfalls, slightly odd and very basic lodgings, a camp site and plenty of wildlife animals including the douc langur, Asiatic black bear, leopard and stump-tailed macaques, as well as wild pigs and deer. There’s excellent bird-watching here as well, but of course, to get a peek at the birds you’ll have to get up at the crack of dawn
