Vietnam Highlight Tourism Activities in March 2016

This year’s tourism sector in Vietnam proves to be a fruitful year as manifested by its series of achievements as early as this month of March.

Phong Nha has been named as the best cave for fossils according to Wanderlust, a popular tourist magazine in UK. Located at the centre of Quang Binh Province in North Central Vietnam or about 500 kilometres South of Hanoi, it is a 44.5-kilometre, nine-cave system which runs through an underground river which likewise connects to the Son River. It is rich in fossils and even new caves are still being discovered.

The basis for the selection lies mainly in Phong Nha’s amazing stalactite and stalagmite arrangement which makes up for a one-of-a-kind karst formation. This produced in the spectacular underground rivers and a labyrinth of equally breathtaking caves. Moreover, visitors can also enjoy other activities like kayaking, trekking and of course swimming. From March to April, guests will be treated to a mass of butterflies flying around the area.
