About Travel to Dong Hoi
Dong Hoi is one of Vietnam’s smaller coastal cities with around 120,000 permanent residents.
Dong Hoi City
Dong Hoi is also not one of Vietnam’s more popular tourists destinations. Although the city has two fairly beaches, it doesn’t have much else of interest for visitors to see. The city centre was almost entirely destroyed by an aerial bombing campaign in 1965 and has been extensively rebuilt since then.
Travel to Phong Nha
Dong Hoi is the connection point between the railway network and road connections to Phong Nha, which is on the edge of the Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park. It’s 44 km by road from Dong Hoi to Phong Nha. Travel by taxi from Dong Hoi to Phong Nha is one option. However, more budget conscious travellers might instead choose to take a local bus service. Local bus services to Phnong Nha depart fairly frequently from a bus stop close to Dong Hoi Post Office.
Phong Nha Village
The village of Phong Nha is a popular tourist destination in its own right. The village is scenically located on the Song River with a backdrop of hills. Phong Nha has lots of river and lakeside accommodation which attracts groups of Vietnamese tourists who come to kayak in the river and enjoy the relaxed countryside atmosphere. Phong Nha also has lots of amenities for foreign tourists, including Western style pubs and restaurants with a Vietnamese twist, like the popular Pub With Cold Beer.
Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park
The Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park covers 857.54 square kilometres. The park contains a large number of different animal, bird and fish species, as well as over 300 caves. The largest of the caves, including Son Doong Cave, which is the world’s largest cave, are quite difficult to reach as you need to walk a long way from the nearest road and camp overnight in the jungle.
Visiting the Caves
Organised tours are mandatory for those wishing to make it to the park’s mega caves. Much more easy to reach, however, is the stil impressively large Phong Nha Cave. Boat tours into Phnong Nha Cave depart from a boat pier in the centre of Phong Nha village.
