Best Deal

Earlier this year I went to Vietnam, rented a motorbike and drove from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi and recorded many nature sounds, traffic sounds along the way! 

From city sounds to crazy traffic, tug boats pass by & engine sounds at Mekong Delta or crowd sounds on several markets & streets in the largest cities of Vietnam I got them all covered but after I reached Phong Nha I felt like I am on a different planet! 

It is by far one of the most beautiful places I have been so far & I get goosebumps thinking back while writing this blog post. If you have Vietnam on your travel list, I highly recommend you go visit it before the tourism gets too crazy in this area.

Challenges I Faced

I do have to say I only spend two nights in Phong Nha. The weather wasn’t the best by the time I was there & I wasn’t prepared enough spending hours somewhere in the jungle with all my equipment. I recorded nature sounds within the Botanical Garden & some parts near the paradise cave in a hidden area close to a quiet river. I was lucky to get some nice bird sounds, frog sound and the sound of waterfalls without having too much noise pollution.  

Phong Nha is not only home to the largest caves in the world movies like Pan or Kong-Skull Island took place here & next time I will visit Vietnam again I am going to spend more time in this National Park

What sounds are inside the library

  • bird call sound effects
  • cicadas sounds
  • mosquitos
  • frog sound effects
  • peacock call
  • footsteps sound effects on a wet small path
  • waterfalls
  • motorbike pass by on wet roads, airplane flyover
  • morning soundscape 5 am in the city recorded from the hotel window
  • controlled bushfire sounds on my way to Phong Nha


If the weather had been better I probably could have gone deeper into the rainforest! I do have to say that sound recording was very challenging. Airplanes and even traffic that is miles away appeared in some parts of the recordings and it can be very frustrating if you try to stay on the paths, listen to the sound of nature & then “broom” a motorbike in the distance.

Bonus Tracks

I included two bonus tracks! One track is from a controlled bushfire on my way to Phong Nha & another wind sound recordings that I recorded near the border to Laos.

How do I get a multi-user license?

That is super simple. You buy the library x times for the number of people that are going to work with the sound library or sound effect. On Bandcamp you can choose the price. If 5 people are going to work with the sounds and the library cost $3 then you pay $15!
