Lang Co Springs

Lang Co Springs was previously just used by locals as access was limited before the new road was constructed around the lagoon. As of mid-2011, locals have started building bamboo shelters and selling food and drinks. A road is currently being constructed, and a parking area is under construction. A motorbike or bicycle can be taken from Lang Co up to the current parking area (at a local's house) and pay 5,000 dong. Then a 15 minute walk through the jungle will end at the spring location. The water is clean, cool and great views back to Lang Co.

Elephant Springs

A nice drive from Hwy 1 west approximately 5 km to the ticket booth. Here you pay to get in, then you drive a further 2 km to the parking lot. The springs are lined with little bamboo coverings along each side which cost about 20,000 dong for an area, unless you also purchase food from the person which they will generally waive the fee. You can purchase Hue beer for 10,000 dong as well as other drinks and food. A whole cooked chicken would cost from 50,000-80,000 dong. The water is cool and refreshing and the view up the mountain is fantastic.

Fishing Village

For the more adventurous are these ramshackle restaurants. During the summer months (Mar-Sep), this beach will have about 30 makeshift tents of bamboo, tarps, and lighting. Each place cooks and sells fresh seafood that is generally caught that day. It is a excellent experience. The cheapest and best seafood in the area.

EAT   —  Chan May Beach

Sao Bien Restaurant

This restaurant has excellent seafood. Prices are reasonable. This restaurant is very popular and will always have buses parked outside with people from early morning through to late evening. Not to worry, there is plenty of seating either inside or outside overlooking the lagoon in the back.
