“Unexpected location for a hospital”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

The visit was part of a tour and was very interesting. Quite short it took less than 30 minutes but it was pleasant.

“nice cave”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

good but a man fakes you by saying he has the key to go inside and charges 1.50 to do tour each...bit of a scam but the cave is nice to see.

“This is an attraction, maybe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

You pay 15.000 VND. And this price is fair. The guide is nice but hardly to understand. The trip is short an you will see like 20 concrete empty rooms. That is it. 10 minutes alone or 20 minutes with the strange stories of the guide.

“a place you would never plan to go...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

we didn't even plan to go to cat ba island during our stay in ha noi. at the end we went there instead of halong bay. you can explore the island best with a motor scooter and there are many things to see. the hospital cave was, as its name suggests, used during the vietnam war as a hospital and place to hide. the cave itself ist just huge and there are just two small entrances/exits. our guide told us that he used to live there as well during the war...
