1. Why is it called Da Ban Stream?
The name Da Ban Stream has made those who first heard it feel curious. Why is it called Da Ban Stream? This name is called that because the stones here look like the table surface. Legend tells that fairies often sit on stones and bathed in the stream. The rocks layer, curl upstream looks so majestic.
Where does the stream come from?
Phu Quoc is famous for its 99 mountains stretching from north to south. Ham Ninh mountain range is the longest and highest mountain range. Da Ban Stream originates here. This is the main water supply source for Duong Dong Lake with a circumference of more than 3.5 km and a depth of 20 meters. With a water reserve of about 5.5 million m3. At present, this amount of water only supplies domestic water for Duong Dong town. And An Thoi town and other communes use water mainly from drilled or dug wells.
How to go to Suoi Ban Stream?
Starting from the center of Duong Dong town, going straight to Nguyen Trung Truc Street, visitors go up the North of the Island, then follow the road with a signpost about 10km to reach the tourist area.
Visitors must stop in front of the resort gate. Park here and follow the cable-stayed bridge or the 2 bridges over the stream to enter the forest. This has become an ideal ecotourism destination. Especially for those who love and explore the natural beauty in Phu Quoc island district.
Walk for about 15 minutes to reach the stream. Here in front of your eyes appears large rocks, flat like a table. The sound of water pouring down sounds very majestic. The scene is different from the gentle Tranh Stream.
The road to the stream waterfall in Da Ban Stream is further and more difficult than that in Tranh Stream, the road infrastructure for large cars from 29 to 45 seats is not available. Therefore, visitors to Da Ban Stream are fewer, it is mostly only local people or people you know guiding. Tourists in groups do not come here as much as Suoi Tranh.
What to do at Da Ban?
The large flat rocks are suitable for camping, eating, and drinking on them. You can bathe in the cool blue water under the waterfall. Often visitors stop at the flat rocks to have fun, so few people wade up to see the highest waterfall.
