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.

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 resort close to the National Park with lush gardens and an inviting swimming pool to cool off in.
Trekking & Paradise Cave
Today you will learn even more about the National Park and its flora and biodiversity, with a trek and visit to the Botanical Garden.
