What people say about the Duck Stop

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Vietnam. Feeding the ducks was hilarious and hopping on the back of a water buffalo called Donald Trump is not something you do everyday! Food they served us afterwards was some of the nicest I've ever had too.

"Highlight of our trip"

I absolutely loved the duck stop. We arrived and was greeted by a very welcoming family and offered a traditional snack they ate. We then got taken to duck heaven where we became duck leaders and I have honestly never laughed so much in my entire life. After that was over I went along and rode a buffalo along the rice fields which was a once in a lifetime experience. If you have time to go then this is a must in Phong Nha.

"favourite place in the whole of Vietnam"

 Everyone there was adorable, friendly and inquisitive.The duck foot massage isnt something that can be described only felt if you can handle it, the food was delicious and worth the bumpy ride down the path. Would recommend!

"Hillarious and tasty food"

About us

Quynh had a dream, a dream of showing visitors to Phong Nha about his life, his ducks and his farm. From a young age he spoke to the occasional tourist as they passed by on the way to the Pub with Cold Beer in the hope of improving his English. At 16 he started showing tourists around the farm and letting them feed the ducks while his mother served cold beer and fresh peanuts. Just a few years later and the Duck Stop is the #1 attraction in Phong Nha on Tripadvisor, a well earned accolade for a humble farming family that want to share the joys and beauty of their simple life in Bong Lai with the wider world.
