Quite different if you compare to Paradise cave. We traveled the cave mostly on a boat which made it interesting. The cave is very nice, but not as spectacular as Paradise Cave. If you can, you should see both, but If you have to choose only one, choose Paradise Cave

We visited the cave as part of a small tour out of Dong Hoi. The boat ride inside the cave is stunning. When we visited it was really quiet, not too many tourists around, so on certain moments it looked like we were the only boat in the cave! It's an impressive, worthwhile visit. Make sure you have some fun... More

It was the most exciting tour I have ever had in viet nam, the system of Cave in Phong Nha with colourful lights made us missing in the real life

If you go to the Pho Nha caves, the best food not to miss is with no doubt the Dark Cave Restaurant. You will enjoy the amazing food from central vietnam taken to a great level of quality in a wonderful athmosfere!

If you are looking for something to do around Phong Nha this is a must. We walked to the booking office from the town (less than 1km) around 3.30pm. The entrance fee is 150,000vnd per person but the boat is the pricey part. You have to pay the full 320,000vnd unless you can find 14 passenger to fill the boat.... More

I'm still processing Paradise Cave's beauty. It's hard to believe that nature have made this. Go! In any way you see it it's a sight for life. We did Dark Cave aswell. Really had an fun and adventoures time! Important notice: If you have some sort of claustrophobia or in any way feel uncomfortable with small/tight places: Don't do Dark... More

Definitely worth a visit while in Phong Nha. Zip line your way to the cave followed by a tour inside all the way to the mud bath which is great fun. You work your way back out of the cave before kayaking your way to another zip line and assault course that's over the river. £10/$15 per adult is more... More

Stopped in Phong Nha as part of our HCM-Hanoi motorbike circuit. Spent 2 nights in town and knew we had to do at LEAST one cave. Checked around...def not emptying $3000 into San Doong, or $1-200 for the others, so for less than $10 we got the boat ride into the cave, went 1km in, then back, walked a couple... More
