The Cuc Phuong National Park won "Asia's Leading National Park 2022" title, surpassing Nepal's Chitwan, Japan's Fuji-Hakone-Izu, Malaysia's Kinabalu and Taman Negara, Indonesia's Komodo, and Sri Lanka's Minneriya.

This is its fourth consecutive win since 2019.

Established in 1962, Cuc Phuong is the oldest national park in Vietnam. It spreads over an area of 22,408 hectares in the provinces of Ninh Binh, Hoa Binh and Thanh Hoa. The park is 120 kilometers to the south of Hanoi.

The dense forests in Cuc Phuong make it a perfect location for researchers, naturalists, conservationists and tourists who can easily get there from Hanoi via National Highway 1A.

Towards the end of April and early May, tourists visit the park during the butterfly season, when millions of white butterflies flit around.
