Good service when you come Quang Binh Phong Nha Cave and paradise cave.
Be prepared to do a lot of walking, to firstly get to it, go through it and then get back out!
Once youre in there it really is magnificent. I like how it is eluminated, unlike many caves in SE Asia which use multi coloured lighting, paradise cave uses a natural white light which allows you to see everything in its natural form.
There are stairs and a walk way for the first 500m or so of the cave, and after that its pitch black without the path. You can walk in there on your own, but remember its 7km long, so make sure you bring a flash light and that youve informed them that youre in there. I walked in a little but its best to go with a guide I recon. Just incase you injure yourself or whatever.
It costs approx 300k kip pp to go in, children are less, and it is well worth it. If youre not up for walking there, they do offer a golf buggy to take you, but you still need to do the climb yourself.
I would recommend this place to anybody, its one of the best caves I’ve been to.
