Introduction

Last updated 29 Aug 2012

Visitors to the spectacular caves of Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park have the option of staying right by the park, in the small town of Son Trach, or making the day trip from Dong Hoi town which is about 40km from Phong Nha Cave.

Dong Hoi town has little to recommend it but it does have some reasonable and well priced hotels. Son Trach is right amidst the beauty of the National Park but hotel standards are mediocre. On balance though, if the point is to experience the beauty of the park, it makes sense to compromise a little on accommodation and get amongst that beauty.

We stayed in the park and while there were some comical hotel moments, it was well worth it.

Our hotel selection includes options both in Dong Hoi and in Son Trach town.

Note that hotels both in the park and in Dong Hoi can get very busy on weekends and during Vietnamese summer holidays (June - August).
