Beautiful!

Visited Phong Nha cave on my business trip to Quang Binh. Very nice experience. You sit on boat to wander around the cave. The air is very cool & fresh. Such a beauty of nature

Once here; it will all become clear.. If you have time then go slowly and visit a cave and only one per day. Begin with Paradise, then Dark, then the duo by the names of Dong Phong Nha and Dong Tien Son. finally if you have the time visit 8 Lady Cave and Temple to understand some local tragic history.

The experience begins at the river bank boarding one of the long flat bottomed boats. Then a pleasant cruise of a few kilometres to the Phong Nha Cave entrance. The engine is shut off and the 2 crew paddle us into the massive cavern for about 500m. The cave decorations of stalactites, stalagmites and flow stones are impressive, even though... More

Most of the tour is done in a boat, and there is a short walk in the end. Definitely worth the cost.

I did a tour with some friends to the paradise cave and dark cave. Paradise cave is beautiful and impressive. Some of the people I was with didn't think it was very exciting but I thought it was cool. Dark cave was really fun - we zip lined into the cave entrance and then walked through with torches to a...

The crystal clear water is the only attraction for me. The remain of the cave is no much things impressive to watch. Just boring tour for us.

The tour took us thru the Phong Nha cave by kayaking, which is one of the longest river caves in the world. It is real caving guys. We did kayak, hike in the cave which is huge, dark then swim. it is just amazing. we really recommend this one!

It is very easy to visit Phong Nha Cave once you arrive at the place (you can either join a tour from Hue, Dong Hoi,... , or go to Dong Hoi or San Tra Village first, and then rent a motorbike to ride to Phong Nha-ke National park) . All you need is to buy an entrance ticket and also... More

I and my friends were advised about conquering 4.5km of Phong Nha cave - a special tour in Phong Nha Tourism Center. We began at 9 a.m, then kayaking inside the cave, swimming, sandy bathing. Going inside the cave, we just saw the dark so that we had to use the headed flashlights. Beautiful stalatites ! Feel as you find... More

Ziplining down a river between mountains, trekking through a dark cave surrounded by mud in your bare feet and bathing in the mud as you reach the end of the trek! Kayaking back to where we started before playing some water sports! The most incredible experience from start to finish! 👌🏻❤️
