Da Ban Stream is an eco-tourist destination for those who love to explore the natural beauty, this is a completely tourist attraction difference in Phu Quoc island. The stream originates from Ham Ninh, the highest and longest mountain among the 99 peaks on Phu Quoc. From a distance, tourists can hear the water cascading but the closer they come, the stronger they hear the sounds

This is a pleasant place for a swim, to cool down in the numerous rock pools and enjoy the surrounding vegetation, though we recommend you bring some mosquito repellent if you are staying around for a picnic. Suoi Da Ban is named after the many table like rock formations that make up what is actually a white water stream tumbling across large and interesting granite boulders.

There are many rock pools along it’s length with beautiful wild ginseng and orchids growing along it’s banks.

On Duong Dong route 1km north, turning right along a bendy road, tourists will arrive at Da Ban stream – a wonderful natural site. The weather is as cool as that of Dalat and it is very quiet because there are not a lot of people here.\

From Duong Dong Town center, tourists are advised to follow Nguyen Trung Truc Street towards Bai Thom beach and turn right to Duong To Town. Once on this dirt red road, you will see a bridge that says Suoi Da Ban spray painted on it, follow this rocky road. Then after 1 or 2 km, you will see a road on your left (also red dirt road) with an entrance sign that says Suoi Da Ban. Then, they can ask local people to reach Da Ban Stream Tourist Site to which admission costs VND 5,000. Tourists have to cross a suspension bridge over a small pond then turn right and go straight to get to the stream. Those who don’t dare to walk on the bridge can take a wooden one which is some steps away.
