Vo Nguyen Giap Cave in Quang Binh opens to visitorsFriday, May 10,2019
AsemconnectVietnam - The historic Vo Nguyen Giap Cave in the central province of Quang Binh has opened for visitors.
The cave, located in Ngan Thuy Commune in Le Thuy District, is named after General Vo Nguyen Giap (1911-2013), Vietnam’s legendary military leader.
From 1971 to 1973, General Giap stayed in the cave where he led military campaigns in southern Vietnam.
The cave has stalactites which look like gold since they contain a large quantity of silica. The cave contains many other stalactite systems and small lakes.
The Vo Nguyen Giap Cave is 40 kilometers to the southwest of Dong Hoi Town, the centre of Quang Binh Province. It can be visited as part of a day tour or a two-day, one-night tour.
Quang Binh, often known as the kingdom of caves, is also home to the world’s largest cave, Son Doong Cave.
The province welcomed 3.9 million visitors in 2018, an increase of 18 percent from 2017.
