Highly recommended- and perhaps my favorite national park in Vietnam for sure. The Restaurant is directly across from the main entrance of Tram Chim National Park in Dong Thap. Most people take the cheaper quick tour. The one I took starts before sundown and is only available from November until January or during the wet season.

There's a restaurant in Bolsa now by the name "Tram Chim." Always nice to know where names come from. Thanks for sharing these videos.

Hopefully within the next year or two I'll be headed back and do a motorcycle trip up and down the coast. I'm sure your videos will come in handy.

Author Kirk Johnson ( ago)
The guides singing is quite good and Kyle's singing is ... well.. it's Kyle right? We love him for so many things. Singing doesn't have to be one of them.

Author V T ( ago)

Hey Kyle, I run into your channel by accident and have been stuck since. I am not Vietnamese but love Vietnam. How do I get in contact with you? Don't worry, I am not into guys....just want to explore the possibility of perhaps cooperating in the near future. I know you left Vietnam but no one can ever say never right? You might need to go back if a good situation comes up...hehe

Author Ronald Caparas ( ago)
hi kyle!! im also eating rice rats,snake heads,snails,small crabs and cat fish in the philippines specially in my home town province of pampanga.

Author Hung Tran ( ago)
Isn't Vietnam the land of opportunities for young entrepreneurs right now? Vietnam is the fastest growing country the past five years. But I also understand that you want to take care of your parents and spend time with them as they age.

I believe one day you will be back to make more great videos. I was born in Vietnam and came to the states when I was 4 years old. My first trip in 2003 open my eyes to how beautiful my motherland is...ever since then I've been back more then 5 times. Each time
I returned, Ho Chi Minh is developing.

Your videos make me want to save up and retire in vietnam when I'm in the USA is great but tend to get boring. I long for the days where I can explore nature in vietnam. But first, let's save up to that 800k for stability and retirement

Unless meat protein comes in a tube form or in a patty shaped hockey puck White people go ape shit. My white friends love hunting and eating squirrel and possums, that shit ain't normal in my book.

Hey Kyle great video. I'll be in Saigon in 2 weeks and this park looks amazing. Is it close enough to the city for a day trip? I'm having trouble finding a tour to it from Saigon.

Vietnam must protect and preserve its wilderness areas. That's it heritage.
