About Travel to Dong Hoi

Dong Hoi is a pleasant small coastal city with around 120,000 permanent residents located in Central Vietnam.

Dong Hoi City

Dong Hoi itself has virtually nothing of interest for tourists other than two beaches close to the city centre, Nhat Le Beach and Bao Ninh Beach, and a pleasant riverside area. Except for part of a church, a gate and a coconut tree, Dong Hoi was completely destroyed in 1965 by the United States Air Force and as a consequence Dong Hoi has no old buildings whatsoever.

Travel from Dong Hoi to Phong Nha

The main reason most foreign visitors come to Dong Hoi is that it is the connection point between the railway network and local bus services to Phong Nha. Phong Nha is small riverside town which is very focused on tourism on account of its being located at the edge of the Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park. Phong Nha is a great place which is very beautiful and much nicer than Dong Hoi as a holiday destination. Local bus services from Dong Hoi to Phong Nha depart frequently from in front of Dong Hoi Post Office.

Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park

The Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park is the largest national park in Vietnam covering an area of 857.54 square kilometres. It is also notable for having over 300 caves, including the largest known cave in the world, Son Doong Cave. Reaching the very large caves such as Son Doong, Hang En, Tu Lan and Hang Va involves a long walks through the jungle and an overnight stay. These types of trips cannot be undertaken alone. Visitors need to join organised tours which are relatively expensive compared to the usual every day type of expenses tourists in Vietnam would normally incur.

Phong Nha Cave

Some of the smaller caves in the Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park are, however, much more easily accessible. The most popular of these caves is Phong Nha Cave. To reach Phong Nha Cave you need to take a river boat from pier in Phong Nha Town. These small wooden boats penetrate about 1,500 metres into the cave and from there visitors can carry on a short way on foot. Also popular are Tien Son Cave and Paradise cave, both of which you enter on foot and feature spectacular stalactites and stalagmites.
