The majestic unspoilt nature of the Pu Mat forest is mixed with the unique culture, sophistication of the Thai people.
Traveling to Pu Mat nature reserve, you cannot miss to go to Khe Kem Waterfall – a beautiful waterfall with majestic altitude of 150 m. The road to the waterfall is so winding, but it is worth when you have the opportunity to see the water falling down like a white silk band flying in the green of forests, which makes you forget tired tired.
On the way back, you can stop at Pha Lai Dam, experience a boat ride on Giang River, stroll through the pristine forest or admire the
Nuoc Moc Stream (also known as Ron Co Tien – the fairy’s navel)… you will feel small in nature between heaven and earth. If you have time, you can visit the Thai village to learn and experience their life. It is also an interesting thing for your trip.
The last destination of the day is Tru Son pottery village, located 20 km from Do Luong town (Nghe An province) to the southeast. Tru Son is a favorite stopping point for anyone who loves ceramic products when they have the opportunity of coming to the West of Nghe An.

Not only that, the water park next door is also the place for you to all things you like. With the extremely attractive slider tube system such as skid steer, super slider and multi-lane slipway… which are equipped with European standards, you will quickly get caught up in the game of cool water and forget the time.
When you return, do not forget to buy specialties of Nghe An as gifts for friends and family, with dishes such as Thanh Chuong salty fibrous jackfruit, Nam Dan soy sauce, Cua Lo fish sauce or sesame rice paper.
