DMZ, Tunnels, and Caves Two-Day Tour
This tour includes visits to...
Day 1: Drive to Phong Nha – Stop at Hien Luong bridge and Vinh Moc tunnel
Leaving behind the ancient capital, you will head to Phong Nha Ke Bang, a magical location also known as Cave Kingdom. Along the way, you will see the DMZ (Vietnam’s Demilitarized Zone), the area around the former border between northern and southern Vietnam.
You will see the historical site of the Vinh Moc tunnels. Unlike the Cu Chi which were used for combat, Vinh Moc Tunnels were bomb shelters predominantly for civilians. During bombing raids, village life carried on underground: children attended school, women gave birth, and families watched movies. The tunnels are an amazing achievement of human toil, engineering, and perseverance.
Day 2: Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park
Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park is the biggest square national park in Vietnam. It’s lovingly known as the “cave kingdom” as it is home to more than 300 caves. Two of the stars of the show are the Phong Nha and Paradise Caves, some of the world’s largest caves and must-see phenomena when in the park.
To visit the Phong Nha Cave, pass the Phong Nha tourist center (at just a few minutes walking distance) and take a boat along the Son River, a beautiful rural area where farmers collect a range of seaweeds. Phong Nha is one of the most beautiful caves in the world. It has an underground river system that stretches over approximately 8 kilometres and is housed in an exquisite cave formation.
The Paradise Cave is about 20 km away from the Phong Nha center, which is about 30 minutes driving. Soak up the beautiful landscape as you make your way to this breathtaking locale. Dubbed an underground palace, this cave is one of the most magnificent wonders of our magical world here in Vietnam. The Paradise Cave is nestled deep in the World Natural Heritage National Park Phong Nha Ke Bang, having formed between 350 and 400 million years ago.
