Fodor's Expert Review The Pub With Cold Beer

$$$ Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park Vietnamese Fodor's Choice

At the midway point of one of the most incredible (and strenuous) 22-km (13½-mile) bicycle loops in the Bong Lai Valley, with views over rice fields and the river, the Pub With Cold Beer has hammocks, a pool table, and, in season, tubes for floating down the river. It’s a beautiful spot to unwind for a few hours, which is how long your chicken lunch is going to take to prepare once you've chosen your live bird. A restaurant under the same name has recently sprung up: the original has a big white wooden sign.
