The Long House was built to create space for the Choro ethnic community to carry out cultural activities, celebrate festivals and events for the continued preservation of their culture. Finish the day with an evening meal of the fresh fish and vegetables from the local farm and sleep over night at the Choro Long House.

   The next day is time to venture into the forest on by bicycle. This tough but exhilarating ride will be worth the effort once you arrive to a completely secluded forest ranger station. Be treated to some Vietnamese hospitality from the friendly forest rangers. You can relax or help prepare a traditional Vietnamese meal with the rangers who have a small onsite farm. Finish the day with a night time walk spotlighting for local wildlife. You also have the option to sleep in hammocks in the forest - an experience in itself!

For those interested in the history of Vietnam this would be an interesting destination to visit, especially highlighting jungle warfare.
