Don't waste your money on a tour, rent a motorbike and go and see paradise cave early morning then come back to town and get your tickets for Phong Nha cave at the boathouse at the top of the Main Street. It worked out half price compared to doing a tour. Make sure you talk to other tourists and split... More

The tour started with a half hour boat trip along the river, as the boat enters the cave they cut the engines and row. It is a serene journey admiring the cave, they removed the roof of the boat before we went in so we could get a better view. Then the boat dropped us off to walk a short... More

The scenary of the Cave is so beautiful and it should be kept safe from construction actions. Make sure that you would have a trekking through the whole length of the cave.

This is one of places we must visit in our trip to Vietnam and this did not make us down. The cave was amazing. Cannot believe that our mother nature can build such a beautiful artwork like this. This could take thousand year to make it and all we need to do now is reserving it. Hope this will be... More

I have already visited a Phong nha cave, have paid for entrance and 350k for the boat. But, that moment, that it's possible to visit two caves in one tour - I get only when have arrived there (but of course, it couldn't be made 2 caves directly on the place). This information was written by a small letters on... More

We went to both caves, they were trully wonderful. We rented 2 scooters from red peppers restaurant for cheap. Its the best option, better than a tour where you dont have freedom of time.

This is a must see for both cavers and non cavers. We were rowed in a small boat into the cave for around one kilometer. The scenery is breathtaking with dazzling displays of stalactites and stalagmites. Words cannot adequately describe the beauty- visit the cave.

Phong Nha cave is beautiful and it's a fun experience getting there by boat. The cave is 250k to enter, plus another 80k for the smaller cave next to it with the name I can't remember but which I highly recommend you visit too (actually prefer that cave over Phong Nha regardless of the tough walk up hill). Then with... More

Well that might be a slightly over dramatic headline but honestly this place is still not that over exploited. I would strongly recommend everyone to see this natural wonder before it becomes a stop where everyone stops. However don't expect to catch the caves glory on photo. It needs to be experienced!

The cave was very good for your time in Dong Hoi city. Many tourists come here before leaving for Hue or Ninh Binh. It was a good choice for your trip in the central Vietnam. Recommend to all!
