Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park is one of the most spectacular wilderness sites in South East Asia and one of the 2 largest limestone regions in the world.
Destined to become one of Vietnam’s major tourist attractions, this beautiful and little explored region contains the world’s longest river cave, Hang Ke Ry and what is believed to be the world’s largest cave, Hang Son Doong Cave (discovered in 2009 and recently explored by a British caving team). A vast network of underground caves and passages can be found, along with awesome jungle scenery and fascinating rock formations.
Visit one of the wonders of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, Paradise Cave, with its spectacular and magical beauty, opened to the public in December 2011. According to the British Royal Cave Association, at 31.4 km this is the longest, dry cave in Asia.
Still in the Park but nearer the village, beautiful Phong Nha Cave, lit up like a psychedelic rock concert, is easily accessible from the farmstay and ranks among the most popular tourist destinations in Vietnam. This and many other of the caves in the area were used as hospitals, bomb shelters and ammunition depots during the American war.
The Park’s 2000 kilometres of sprawling vegetation is an ideal habitat for a wide variety of plants and animals unique to the region including the highest diversity of primates in South East Asia.
Wild and exciting… but at the same time, the experience of this captivating scenic beauty leaves you with a sense of tranquillity.
Halong Bay Vietnam
: Imagine 199 or more islands rising from the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin and you have a vision of breataking beauty. Halong translates as “ where the dragon descends into the sea”, and legend claims the islands of Halong bay were created by a great dragon from the mountains. As it charged towards the coast, its flailing tail gouged out valleys and crevasses. When it finally plunged into the sea, the area filled with water, leaving only the pinnacles visible.
Designated a World Heritage site in 1994, this mystical landcape of limestone islets is often compared to Guilin in China or Krabi in southern Thailand. In reality, Halong Bay is more spectacular. The bay’s immense number of islands are dotted with wind and wave-eroded grottoes, and their sparsely for ested slopes ring with birdsong.
Beyond a boat cruise, visitors to Halong also come to explore the caves . theere are few real beaches in Halong bay, but Lan Ha Bay
has idyllic sandy cives a chort boat hop from Cat Ba town. Read More..,
