Vietnam – Phong Nha-Ke Bang Caves

Planning a trip to Vietnam and keen to explore some of its most spectacular scenery? A little north of the 17th parallel – the demarcation where Vietnam was once divided into north and south – lies Phong Nha-Ke Bang: 885 square kilometres of unspoilt jungle, caves and underground rivers squeezed between the Laos border and South China Sea.

The UNESCO-listed national park hit the headlines in 2009, when its colossal Hang Son Doong (Son Doong Cave) was discovered to be the largest in the world, and again this year, when the rugged terrain was used as a location for Hollywood blockbuster Kong: Skull Island. But the region is changing fast, with improving transport links bringing in more tourists than ever.
