Quang Binh in central Vietnam is well-known for natural landscapes, spiritual tourism destinations and historical relic sites.
The province has big advantages to develop cave, forest and sea-based tourism.
Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park, which was twice recognised as world natural heritage sites by UNESCO in 2003 and 2015, is a paradise for cave explorers.
It was listed among the “Top experiences in Vietnam” in 2017 by Lonely Planet – a renowned travel publication.
The park contains the oldest karst mountains in Asia, formed approximately 400 million years ago. Riddled with hundreds of extraordinary cave systems and spectacular underground rivers, Phong Nha is a speleologists’ heaven on earth, the site said.
“The caves are the region’s absolute highlights, but the above-ground attractions of forest trekking, the area’s war history, and rural mountain biking means it deserves a stay of around three days”, the travel site added.
