HCM CITY – The Duck Stop Farm in Quảng Bình Province near the famous Phong Nha – Kẻ Bàng Cave offers visitors an unusual experience: a free "massage" given by ducks that eat out of their hands.
The farm is the brainchild of 20-year-old Trần Văn Quynh, who owns 120 ducks.
Quynh guides visitors on how to hold a handful of seeds in their cupped palms so they ducks can munch them, creating a massaging effect.
The experience is similar to the famous fish massage in Thailand where people put their legs in water tanks full of small fish that nibble at the skin.
Besides the duck massage, tourists can ride buffalos in the rice fields
A visit to the farm costs between VNĐ150,000 ($6.47) and VNĐ250,000 ($10.78), depending on the activities you choose. — VNS
