It's awful. Monkeys forced to ride on dogs. It's just sickening how Vietnam exploits wildlife. I hated it.

It is a beautiful place but the monkeys won’t let you enjoy in peace. If you want to go for a swim you can’t leave anything on the beach chairs because the monkeys will steal anything you leave unguarded
