According to the regulations of the national parks, visitors are not allowed to enter the forest from 18:00 pm to 6:00 am. Some national parks have a certain “permissiveness” but if you are unlucky that day, the rangers catch you sneaking into the forest at night, you will be fined. Therefore, do not risk going into the forest at night without permission.

Tours to see amphibians, reptiles (herping), or night animals (spotlighting) in Vietnam are extremely new, no tour company has enough manpower to carry out such tours. The national parks in Vietnam all have staff with enough knowledge and experience to accompany tourists into the forest at night, but because they are not officially in business, these staffs are also hesitant to bring tourists. When guests travel at night, there is more risk for them to be responsible than for the profit they derive from the remuneration.
