    If you’re looking for a place to get abDUCKted, you’ve found it!
    Who knew ducks could be such a great activity? I don’t want to spoil it, but rest assured you will be closely guided through a once in a lifetime experience involving everything from ducks, a water buffalo, a lemon tree, and a home cooked meal. Very affordable and well worth the cost. I’d recommend to anybody visiting the Phong Nha area.

    Loved it!
    Loved it! From the moment we entered the gate we were greeted with friendly smiles, snacks and a drink and told about the ducks. We then had a great time with the ducks - so funny! A great little experience that was finished off with delicious pancakes in rice paper. If I’m the area- definitely take the time to drop in for a visit- you won’t be disappointed.

    Bizarrely wonderful. Loved it.
    Amazing fun for all the family. Ducks seemed well looked after and we laughed the entire time we were there. My kids huge smiles were so good to see and it was great value... Plus they fed us.

    What the duck!
    Loved it. Such a simple experience of basic fun for small children. Started off with some peanuts which were great. Then we saw the ducks. The ducks go berserk around your feet, they chase you, you feed them. It was all amazing and such fun. Then we had the option to have photos on the back of a water buffalo for 50k. When finished we had crispy pancakes which tasted delicious and a drink (beer/water/soda). This costs 100k per person. If you're cheap, don't go. If you're open minded for simple fun, this is it! As a bonus all of these farmers speak VERY good English, and answered so many questions. I would highly recommend it.

    An absolute Phong Nha must
    We happened to stop by here on our scooter ride up the Bong Lai valley. So very glad that we did. Fantastically friendly staff will take you through an experience with the ducks on their farm that you’ll never forget. Entry is very cheap, and includes the tour, a drink (sofa or beer) and a delicious local meal. It all an absolute riot and a very unexpected, but delightful highlight on our trip through Vietnam. It’s a must if you happen to be staying in Phong Nha!

    Worth a visit! Such a unique experience
    What a fun, unique activity! We rented a motorbike and rode to the Duck Stop, which was pretty fun in and of itself. We were delighted to be greeted with a peanut snack, and then even more delighted to meet our Duck Leader who showed us his ways so we could feed the ducks ourselves. Getting my feet massaged by dozens of duck beaks was definitely a new one for me :) I also enjoyed riding the water buffalo, though I really don't appreciate its name and think they should change it to something sweet and gentle that represents his sweet nature.

    Fun with the ducks!!
    The duck stop was fun!! A tour of the garden first, got to feed the ducks and enjoyed some lunch afterwards. We got to try Vietnamese crepes with a peanut sauce. Definitely recommend this if you are in Phong Nha.

    Amazing
    I’m not entirely sure what we expected, but it was probably one of the funniest things we’ve done in Vietnam. The guy taking us around was so funny, and the ducks were brilliant. The pancakes after were really tasty!! If you’re in Phong Nha you have to go to Duck Stop!!!!

So funny. A must do! Food was incredible and the ducks are so funny. A meal, drink, and feeding the ducks for 100,000 dong each. Veggie option available. Only a 10min drive from town.
