Absolutely Incredible
Apr 2021
If you look at the negative reviews, they seem to be from people who either weren't interested in seeing the caves in the first place or just seem like people who cannot be pleased. The fact of the matter is that there's really no way to see these caves properly without taking a tour with a guiding company. If you do that, you'll see the remarkable cave system through trekking, climbing, rope-work (basic), and even swimming. We did a 3d/2n trip and considered it to be the most incredible experience of our three-years in Vietnam.

Gliding in gondolier style into a spectacular cave the is kilometres long. Seeing sculptures that are unbelievable. Imagination, shows an alligator, a lion, a mother and child's heads, stepped water falls...We went three times over 20 days.
That is how extraordinary the caves are..........

Interesting cave system. My friends were psyched about it. Me not so much. I've visited other caves that impressed me more. As you leave the cave and look across the river...you can see the Ho Chi Minh Trail. I found that the most interesting part of this expedition.

Wow Factor!

This is a mild activity done from the comfort of a dragon boat and you can sit back and relax while taking in the breathtaking scenery inside this HUGE cave believed to be 7 km long. You only go in about 1 km inside the cave and it is amazing to discover the beauty of it all. Very ancient , feels like you travel back into time , sense of peace, amazement and complete surrender to your immediate surroundings..You also do about 200-300m walking inside the cave which I enjoyed immensely. This is money well spend and worth doing.... go early...

Nightmare to actually get tickets. You have to pay 150,000 dong for your ticket then wait for 11 other people so you can all pay for a boat at 550,000 dong between you. Why not just charge everyone 45,000 dong which is a twelfth of the boat price?! We had a nightmare trying to badger passersby into joining our boat and eventually found 10 people. The boat journey itself was nice and the caves interesting. Dont really think it's worth the amount they charge though
