What people say about the Duck Stop
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.
Tet is the Vietnamese Lunar New Year. We will celebrate the first day of the new year in 2019 on the 5 th of February in the Gregorian calendar.
Donald Trump is our water buffalo. He has an easy life now – he doesn’t have to work hard in the fields and he gets lots of love from the tourists and our family
We serve delicious food at the Duck Stop. Our family has perfected the best Banh Xeo that you will get in the area and the peanut sauce is incredibly tasty! Choose from vegetarian or pork.
