Thung Nai has become a huge lake containing the water served for the operation of the hydropower plant on Da River since the 1980s when this hydropower plant was constructed. All initial surrounding high mountains become floating green islands and create poetic and magnificent scenery which can enchant any tourist in Vietnam travel.

The guesthouse area consists of a large two-storey redbrick house and a windmill offering visitors a breathtaking view of Thung Nai, a stilt house functioning as a communal dinning place, and a tennis court lying in the lush orchard. Now, the Windmill itself is one of tourist-attractive destinations to Thung Nai in Vietnam tourism.
