Bu Gia Map national park

It rained for the whole 40km to Bu Gia Map.
We stopped at a cafe' in the village. I talked to the owner and he allowed us to use his cafe' floor for erect our tent.
Half an hour later, a friend of friend came and advised us not to stay there. He showed us a small Guesthouse nearby with cheap price and safer for us.

Well, it's here, $7.5 each room, aircon, hot water, secured bike park...:

The guesthouse owner was so friendly. He gave us his kitchen to cook. He also gave us some local fruit.
We learned a lot about this area, as well as the stories about the route we are going to take in the next day.
One of the most impressive story that there were four accidents had been happened just last week, since the rain season started. That's because of lightning. People just died suddenly when traveling to work or to school.

It rained all night long.

Guesthouse 's gate in the next morning - no rain:

Small market in the village:

A buddy bought a pair of sandals. The other tried to be the seller. :

Where in the world you can find this kind of transportation means? It's durable, reliable, and bloody cheap!

We invited Guesthouse owner for a breakfast outside. He invited us a really nice coffee session.
Time for all paperwork endorsement for the access of Bu Gia Map national park:

See the great adventure road just 1km away from the Guesthouse:
