Central Vietnam is amazing! We based ourselves in Phong Nha to check out all the stunning caves. Paradise cave is massive, up to 100 meters high and 150 meters wide. There are all kinds of stalagmites and stalactites that look like flowing rocks. Check out the photos.
Later in the day we took a dive into the mud! Mud cave to be exact. After wandering through 10 minutes of winding cave passages, we made it to a pool of cool mud where you can levitate! It’s thick enough to sit or lay down in and not sink! On your way out you can clean off in the clear pools that feed the nearby stream. My skin felt tingly smooth!
After the caves we headed to a forray of narrow mountains and winding rivers – Tam Coc. We took a boat tour through a bunch of caves and amongst the mountains. Truly a sight to be hold! The natural beauty in Central Vietnam is brilliant! You can even spot little Buddhist temples along the mountainsides. It seems like another world.
From nature we head to the belly of the beast – Vietnam’s capital in Hanoi. Onto the train!
