Nam Ha National Protected Area
Nam Ha—third largest of the National Protected Areas—869 square miles (2,224 km2)—is in the globally important northern Indochina subtropical moist forest along the border with China, Myanmar, and Thailand. It adjoins the Shaing Yong Protected Area in the Xishuangpanna National Nature Reserve of Yunnan, China.
Within its borders are at least 38 large mammal and 288 bird species, notably silver pheasants, Blythe’s kingfishers, short-tailed parrot-bills, rufous-throated fulvettas, rufous-necked hornbills, and pied falconets, some globally threatened or vulnerable.

There’s reasonably good bus service throughout most of the country. Internal flights can be unsafe. River taxi or long-distance boats are commonly used.
