Banlung is also famous for its rubber plantations located on the outskirts of the city and forming gateways to the more remote areas of the province as a whole. Also there is Wat Rahtanhahram and it's spectacular views from the reclining Buddha at the top. Waterfalls, lakes and national parks make up just a few of the nearby Ratanakiri attractions.
There was an airport in Banlung but use of the airport is currently suspended. Travel to the region is only available overland via public bus, private bus, private car or for the more adventurous, motorbike. The good news is that the road from Stung Treng to Banlung is now fully sealed, bringing this journey time down to a week.
