The farmstay is situated at an amazing location next to rice fields...the general environment is laid back and relaxing..beds are clean and it also has a swimming pool...it is run by a friendly australian guy, Ben. Do take his tours as it will be the most non-traditional and exciting tour.

We continued to walk through realising it was huge! ...

We did note that she consumed neither the drink nor the oreos and that this was just as likely a ruse to make money off easily manipulated tourists such as ourselves!

I’m content with what I’ve got here. On a side note (because I’m great at those) I’m unsure how to feel about going home. I leave here in just 5 more days to head to Hue for our company team-building, stay a couple extra days in Hue since I’ve never been, and from there I fly to Hanoi and start making my way home. What will home feel like? What will it feel like to return here after a ...
