Phước Bình National Park is one of the latest additions to the list of national parks and nature reserves in Việt Nam.

The pristine forest in central Ninh Thuận Province features a number of destinations for ecotourism, notably Đá Bàn Waterfall, Gia Non Waterfall and Gia Nhông Stream.

Local residents, which consist of the Raglai and Churu people – two of some over 150 ethnic groups in the country – offer visitors unique and authentic insights into their culture.

The national park is expected to boost the province’s tourism industry and improve livelihoods for local residents.
