This little boat ride in dragon boats into the Phong Nha cave is almost like a perfectly crafted disney ride. Going downriver past the picturesque village, grazing water buffalo, etc and into a wondrous and beautifully lit cave. Great activity for all ages.

Most of this kilometer will be explored by boat, at the end you will get out of the boat and explore the cave on... More

This is a must-see place since it is beautiful, easy to access and well organized. I suggest a stop in Dong Hoi first.

The slow-but-steady boat ride gives little indication of the grandeur of the spectacle that awaits you. Once inside the caves the cathedral-like proportions are stunning. The caves are sensitively lit which illuminates the colours and scale of the... More
