Arrival in Phong Nha National Park

Day 1

Arrival in Phong Nha National Park

Today you will arrive into a diverse area of Vietnam and an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Previous limited access to this area has maintained its pristine forests and jungles, as well as hidden a labyrinth of impressive caves which were only discovered in the last 20 years.

First up is a boat ride on the Son river to visit Phong Nha cave and Tien Son. You’ll pass limestone peaks and grazing buffalo as you reach the mouth of the cave before floating along the calm water to take in the sheer size of these epic caves. Your accommodation is a farmstay retreat close to the National Park with lush gardens and an inviting swimming pool to cool off in.

“Vietnam is as chaotic as it is calming, which is precisely why I love it! I’ve been spoiled for choice with its incredible landscapes and phenomenal pho, and having lived there for a spell, I’ve got plenty of my own tips to share!”
