About Travel to Dong Hoi
Dong Hoi is the capital city of Quang Binh Province in the Central Region of Vietnam with a population of around 120,000 permanent residents.
Dong Hoi City
Dong Hoi itself is a relatively laid back town with a river running through it and two excellent beaches within walking distance of the city centre that attracts far fewer foreign tourists than better known coastal towns such as Nha Trang and Da Nang. Whilst seldom overrun with foreign visitors it does have hotels, restaurants and bars which primarily cater to the needs of foreign visitors, and those who do come here often find that they enjoy the balance of facilities and low level of international tourism. The people of Dong Hoi are generally friendlier to foreign visitors than the local residents of more established tourist destinations.
Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park
The major tourist attraction of Quang Binh province is the Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park, which is slightly over 40 km by road from Dong Hoi city centre. The Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park covers a 857.54 square kilometre section of a much larger cluster of limestone hills that stretches across the border into Laos. The park has 12 peaks which rise to over 1,000 metres above sea level, and over 300 caves, including the largest cave in the world, Son Doong Cave.
Visiting the Caves
To visit Son Doong Cave, or any of the other really large caves such as Hang En Cave, you need to join an organised tour for a multi-day camping expedition as these caves are located deep within the jungle. Much more easily accessible is Phang Nha Cave, which you can reach by taking a boat for 1.5 km along a river into the cave itself.
Other Activities within the Park
Hiking, cycling and kayaking are all possible within Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park, although the hire of equipment and guides can be prohibitively expensive, particular for backpackers on a tight budget.
