Start your day on the DT20, a section of road that was once a strategic part of the Ho Chi Minh Trail into Laos and southern Vietnam. From here you’ll visit the botanical gardens and learn about the unique ecosystems in the Phong Nha tropical forests.
Journey deeper into the national park to reach Paradise Cave, a 19-mile (31-km ) long cavern that boasts some of the most impressive stalagmites and stalactites in the region. You will be able to wander along a 1.2-mile raised walkway through the cave and admire the incredible natural formations lit up with soft, yellow lights.
After lunch, you’ll then hop in a kayak for a tour of the beautiful Chay River. You’ll paddle all the way to the Son River and then visit a charming little riverside village called Tram Me. Here you’ll have a chance to chat to the locals and learn about their lives in the national park.
Phong Nha has jungle and a terrain characterized by limestone and karst. This porous material makes it possible for subterranean rivers to form caves. Visitors come here for an off-the-beaten-path adventure in central Vietnam.

Wandering through the vast caverns of Thien Duong Cave, it isn’t difficult to see how it earned the moniker of “Paradise Cave.” Unique stalactites and stalagmites embellish every surface in a rainbow of hues, some gigantic and some tiny. Complicated towers reach up to the ceiling and rimstone pools form terraces along the cave floor. Thien Duong Cave is a true marvel of nature.
