Ta Lai Long House

Guesthouse in Cat Tien National Park

Excellent, unique, traditional-style lodge managed by Westerners and locals from the S'Tieng and Ma minorities. The dormitory accommodation is in two well-constructed timber longhouses, with good, screened bedding, modern facilities and plenty of activities on offer, but it's probably not for those who value their privacy. Avoid weekend school team-building events like the plague. It's 12km southwest of the park HQ.

A third of the profits go to local charity projects.
