It's not far from the downtown of Vang Vieng, you will find a great place by the side of Nam Song river. Those who like quietness will enjoy this place. The entrance fee is quite cheap. If you are strong enough to climb up, hundreds...More

Pleasant walk from the middle of town. Cheap entry and definitely worth the 15,000 KIP! We were the only people on the cave during our visit which would have made the experience a lot better! Great views from the top too!

Easy enough to walk to from town. Striking orange bridge to cross before entering the cave. Definitely no torches needed in here! Good way to spend a couple of hours if you like caves.

Walked here from the south part of town where i was staying. Easy to get to by foot. Paid 2000 kip for the bridge and it’s 15,000 kip for the cave. There’s a lot of steps leading up to the cave but once you’re inside...More

It is a beauty. Nothing much to see but since it was developed it is just for a person to experience going inside a cave. Stalactites and stalagmites are not that massive.

We were skeptical to enter because we thought the cave would be dark and slippery like Hoi cave and Loop cave. In fact, the whole pathway is concrete and non slippery. Cave was well lit and I would say there isn’t any danger in there....More

First: try to avoid confusion about which cave you mean; south of VV, or north, as being near the Tham Nam (water cave). The one south is where this review is about. I liked it, being close to town (yes, walking distance), and with good,...More

This cave has been used by hundreds of people to escape the atrocities of war. Many stayed in here during the Vietnam war. The cave is easy enough to visit, just walk up the steps and wander in. The walkways are concrete and the lighting...More

Beautiful setting along the riverside and steep set of steps deliver you to the cave entrance. Once inside, the walkways are all concrete, with lighting along the way. Ok to view but not the most beautiful or exciting cave in the area.

This cave is the only cave that is well lit inside and popular with the locals such that there are often many visitors. I did not see any guide at the cave nor did I notice any offering guide services there... I am quite... More
