We visited this cave for about 20 minutes. There a decent amount to see and there are a few levels. Always interesting to see the ingenuity of the Vietnamese during the war. No need for the guide in our opinion. Worth a short visit.

I think I probably should have gotten a guide. You get there, park your bike across the way. Pay either 10,000 dong to park or buy something to eat or drink and buy your ticket. You walk up a bunch of stairs and there it...More

Definitely worth it. The cave is really beautiful and you definitely get a feel for what it must have been like for the Vietcong. A great experience for only 40,000d. Make sure to wear bug spray though!

If you want to see empty concret rooms, thats the place to go. The “guide“ explained about the many many rooms the cave has and you expect some nice furnished rooms - nope, you get only empty rooms for the price of 40000 vnd. Brtter...More

For only 40,000 Dong (£1.30) it's very cheap to enter. Very easy to miss it - only one sign right at the entrance. Park in the restaurant opposite where you get your ticket. Just one guide on duty when we were there so we made...More
