Dong Hoi – the starting point for exploring Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.
Dong Hoi City (Quang Binh province) is not so famous and visited city like another cities in central Vietnam, for example like Hue or Hoi An. Dong Hoi is in the north of central Vietnam, 500 km south from Hanoi and 150 km north from Hue. But also in Dong Hoi there are also some nice beaches at the ocean. Dong Hoi is the starting point when you want to visit Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park or the largest and world famous cave – Son Doong cave (Sơn Đoòng).

Son Doong is the largest and world famous cave, protected by UNESCO.


Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park (45 km from Dong Hoi)
offers a lot of activities for tourists and visitors from all the world, it is a more popular place for tourists. For example kayaking, boat tours, exploring the caves and trekking in the nature. Song Doong cave was opened for tourists in 2013 and you can buy eg. 5 days expedition in the price of around 3000-4000 Usd in Oxalis company.
