Explore the underground rivers and brilliant limestone grottoes of Phong Nha Cave on this day trip from the central city of Hue. Instead of trying to find your own way to Phong Nha in a rental car, save your energy and let a professional driver handle the roughly three-hour drive to and from Hue. Once you arrive, spend the afternoon cruising around this UNESCO World Heritage Site on a low-intensity boat tour, marveling at the impressive landscapes and cave networks.

_ In the early morning, we depart from Hue to Phong Nha (160km – 3.5 hours). On the way, stop to visit the Basilica of Our Lady of La Vang – a catholic church formerly built in the forest near Quang Tri up from the old DMZ. Later, several buildings of La Vang were rebuilt and destroyed during the war between the North and the South Vietnam. Have lunch in Dong Hoi.
After that, take a boat trip along Son River to explore the Phong Nha Cave. Among 300 caves and grottos in Phong Nha Ke Bang national park, only 20 have been surveyed. Notably, Phong Nha, is the most beautiful cave which holds several records for the highest and longest cave, the longest underground river, finest beaches inside and the most splendid stalagmites and stalactites. These amazing natural art works have been given beautiful names such as the “Lion”, the “Fairy Caves“, the “Royal Court”, and the “Buddha”.
Walk back to the boat, we cruise back to the wharf then transfer to your hotel in Hue. End of our service.
