Nguyen Hoai Nam, secretary of Tuyen Hoa District Party Committee, said that the area may still have many unexplored caves. “Some caves have large spaces, stunning stalactites, and good tourism potential,” said Nam. “The district intends to make these locations safe tourism destinations once more precise information is provided.”
With more than 500 caves discovered, Quang Binh in central Vietnam is renowned as the country’s kingdom of caves. There are over 40 caves in the province that are open to tourists. Son Doong is the world’s largest while En and Pigmy caves come second and fourth.
Slots for the Son Dong expedition adventure tour have been fully booked through March 2024.
