Visiting Da Ban stream, Phu Quoc in the rain
Xem anh phong to
The rainy season helps cool us down from the scorching sun these days and where better to enjoy the cool air but in a stream inside a jungle.

So, pack your bags and head to Phu Quoc Island off Kien Giang Province to discover Da Ban stream where there are numerous huge and flat stones like tables sitting there waiting for you to enjoy. Legend has it that this was where fairies came to swim.

 

The stream originates from Ham Ninh, the highest and longest mountain among the 99 peaks on Phu Quoc. From a distance, tourists can hear the water cascading but the closer they come, the stronger they hear the sounds. Da Ban falls down from a great height and spreads around many places that are blocked by some giant stones to create smaller waterfalls.

 

Travel agencies on Phu Quoc usually take travelers to Tranh stream instead of Da Ban as the road to Da Ban is not easy. Thus, most people who visit this place are self-sufficient travelers accompanied by their acquaintances.

 

From Duong Dong Town center, tourists are advised to follow Nguyen Trung Truc Street towards Bai Thom beach and turn right to Duong To Town. Then, they can ask local people to reach Da Ban Stream Tourist Site to which admission costs VND5,000. Tourists have to cross a suspension bridge over a small pond then turn right and go straight to get to the stream. Those who don’t dare to walk on the bridge can take a wooden one which is some steps away.

 

Tourists can bring food and drinks to treat themselves in the shade as they can use the big rocks as ready made tables. Sandals and insect-prevention lotion are also a must.
