About Travel to Dong Hoi
Dong Hoi is a small city with around 120,000 permanent residents which was almost completely destroyed by bombs dropped by the United States Air Force in 1965. Dong Hoi itself has a good range of hotels and restaurants, as well as two beaches close to the city centre, but no major tourist attractions and as a consequence very few foreign visitors choose to stay in Dong Hoi overnight. The foreign visitors who do come to Dong Hoi mostly do so on route to the Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park, which is 43 km by road from Dong Hoi Railway Station. Local bus services to Phong Nha, which is a small town near the Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park, depart hourly during the day from outside Dong Hoi Post Office.
Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park is a protected area covering 857.54 square kilometres. The Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park is home to a wide range of animals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish, and is a popular place to go hiking, cycling and kayaking. The thing that the Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park is most famous for, however, is its 300 or so caves. These caves caves include the world’s largest cave, Son Doong Cave, and several other very large caves such as Hang En, Tu Lan and Hang Va.
Reaching the largest caves involves a multi-day hike, camping overnight, as they are located a long way way from a road. People wishing to visit these inaccesible caves need to pay to join a tour group, with trips costing the equivalent of several hundred US dollars. There are also fairly large caves in the park which are much easier to get to, particularly Phong Nha Cave and Paradise Case.
To get to Phong Nha Cave visitors need to take a boat trip from a pier on the river in Phong Nha. The boat takes passengers into the cave, where they disembark to walk further into the cave to see the strangely shaped stalactites and stalagmites. Paradise Cave is also easily accessible, although you need to walk up and down a lot of steps to get into this cave. For those wishing to explore the whole section of the cave that is open to visitors the total length of the walk is about 7 km.
