Hobbit habitat brings Lord of the Rings to Hue

The Hobbit village is the name given by many tourists to a camping site in Bach Ma Forest, a national park about 40 km away from downtown Hue. This place preserves many species of plants and animals. The camping site is inspired by the village of the Hobbits in the famous movie Lord of the Rings

Like the Hobbit village in Matamata, Waikato (north of New Zealand) - the actual shooting location of the film, the village in Hue has many houses that are half above and half below the ground.
