Go far away to shake away – Go to a dumb place to not return

Go by private car:
Method 1: The first road is from Hanoi to follow Ho Chi Minh Road, passing Cuc Phuong National Forest to Cam Thuy, Canh Nang Town, 15C Street, straight to Puluong Retreat, about 200km. This is the most straight-forward road, with little to go through mountain roads and the easiest to go – 4.5 hours to drive a car
Method 2: The second road is from Hanoi to highway 6, passing Hoa Binh, Co Luong junction to turn left to Road 15C, Puluong Retreat: 180km – 4.5 hours to drive a car
Bus ride:
From Hanoi, it is possible to ride Hoang Phuong bus, stop at Canh Nang town, then take a car to Puluong Retreat.
From Thanh Hoa city to Manh Tan passenger car 0967158136 or 0915946136 (70k), you can then ask the car how to move to Pulong Retreat: 160km.
NOTE: It is very easy to go from Puluong town to Puluong, but when it comes to puluong returning to the city, it is quite difficult because there is no means and especially there is NO TAXI. Besides puluong retreat, there is 1 garage cum house on the floor (the house price is about 100k / ng / night) the landlord can take you to the bus station Canh Nang but the cost is quite expensive.

Water pool overflows super “hot” in the Pu Luong travel guide

Because it is a resort, there are quite a few sports games or places to explore, so don’t go if you like the bustle and play. But if you want to find a quiet place to breathe and relax after tired days, this is a very desirable place to come. A great experience for myself.

I will take you to a safe place

One of the sure experiences you have to try when you arrive at Pu Luong Retreat is to have a nice snorkel in the infinity pool. Water in the lake is a natural source of water pumped continuously, so it is quite clean. Note that those with sensitive skin should not bathe much, itchy easily.



The room here is quite beautiful, fragrant, creating a pleasant feeling for guests to rest here. Note: Remember to close windows before going out to avoid mosquitoes entering the room.

You should book from 102 to 105 to have a nice view from the room.

Here, you can travel around Pu Luong. Getting rid of the dusty atmosphere of the noisy city, coming to Pu Luong will see a green, leafy tree, a fresh atmosphere, terraced fields stretching from soaring, friendly people and very honest.
Located in the core zone of Pu Luong, Ban Hieu (Co Lung commune, Ba Thuoc district) famous for the Hieu stream can turn trees into stone. Due to the large amount of limestone, spring water of Hieu makes calcified roots in the stream. Spring water is cool, cool in summer and warm in winter. At the foot of Hieu waterfall are completely natural swimming pools, will certainly be an unforgettable experience in the life of the love of discovery.


Arriving in Pu Luong in the ripe rice season, the road is 25 km long from Canh Nang town to Hieu village is very beautiful because the two sides are terraced fields, the streams bend themselves through every corner and ring constantly. Just arrived at the top of the village was heard the welcome stream.
Attractive experiences in Hiêu Hoài:
• Visit terraced fields
• Visit the palm hill
• Waterfall Hiêu
• Journey Son – Ba – Ten is as beautiful as a painting



On the way back from Hiêu village, Cành Nang town, Đòn street market – a special highland market of Bá Thước people is an interesting stop. The market only meets on Thursday mornings and Sunday mornings. Guests can eat a bowl of bitter soup, then go to the market, buy products that people can grow by themselves or collect the mountains and forests to sell, such as: honey, bamboo shoots, crabs and stone snails.

4. What to eat at PuLuong?

Food at Puluong Retreat is quite delicious and plentiful. However, you must book 1 day in advance. Especially the Ancient Duck specialties here. Price 120k / kg. 1 child about 2kg. I bought 2 children to try and find it delicious. Moderate soft, sweet meat. If you haven’t come to Pu Luong to eat the Ancient Lung duck, don’t think you’re here yet.

When finished eating, go to the swing at the bottom of the floor to sit and talk about the old days when you were in love. There is a moon, okay, there are frogs who call for you and you are romantic.

5. Costs

Room rate: House floor: 320k / ng / night, Suite Bungalow (only 1 room): range 2t2 to 2tr5 / night, the cheapest is Deluxe Bungalow: CN to t5: 1tr4 / night. T6, T7: 1tr7 / night. The room rate includes buffet breakfast.
Eating: 250k / person / meal. There is a menu here depending on the day you arrive. It fixed the menu because it was difficult to transport food, so you had to book it as soon as 1 day. Usually, I will put it when bock room.
