  • DAY 01

    Arrival day in Dong Hoi

    Today is arrival day so there are no activities planned and it is a great opportunity for you to relax at your beachside resort or take a swim in the pool. A private car will transfer you from the airport or train station to your hotel.

  • DAY 02

    Explore the caves in Dong Hoi

    Departing early we travel 45km into the dramatic Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, with its towering limestone karsts looming out of a rural landscape of rice paddies. The scenery is simply stunning so be sure to have your camera well charged. We board a boat to visit the enormous Phong Nha Cave, the second largest cave in Vietnam. We return to Phong Nha and take a break for lunch. Next we visit the Thien Duong (Paradise) Cave, discovered in 2005 and regarded by some as one of the most beautiful caves in the world. It is located in pristine untouched jungle. 500 stairs to the entrance and another 100-200 stairs down inside take you to another world.

  • DAY 03

    Discover Military History in Hue

    After breakfast we travel south for 2 hours to the Vinh Moc Tunnels, in the former Demilitarised Zone, for a fascinating tour. During the war this was the most heavily bombed area, dividing the North from the South, so the villagers were forced to live underground. We continue south over the Ben Hai River into the South of Vietnam and finally to Hue.

  • DAY 04

    Departure Day

    Departure Day. Spend your time exploring Hue and a private car will transfer you to the airport when you are ready. If you have other arrangements for your onward journey let us know and we can arrange transport.


You'll be staying in luxurious 4 star accommodation for the whole trip. The portion in Phong Nha and Dong Hoi will be at a beach resort and in Hue you'll stay at a centrally located hotel.
