The Duck Stop in Phong Nha is one of the most famous and popular places in Vietnam on social media like TikTok and Instagram. When I spent a month backpacking Vietnam, I spent 4 days in Phong Nha, and I headed to the farm to see if it was worth the hype, or if it was a case of “social media vs reality”.
