After some confusion at the entry with a lady waving tickets for 40k, we paid, she said we would have a guide and so went up to the hospital cave. There wasn't a guide so my daughter went back down to ask. The guide arrived...More

We enjoyed our visit and were lucky enough to have the ticket collector take us around and explain all the history and it made the place come alive. The recent history is sad but true

It’s not that it wouldn’t be impressive how they built a hospital inside a cave, but for me it was definitely not worth the 40.000 dong plus 5.000 parking fee. You can see the whole cave in under 10 min without rushing...

If you appreciate history and have some imagination.. you should stop by. It's two minutes of stairs and won't need more then 20-30 minutes. Yes it's manmade inside. It was used as a hospital during the war. They built a hospital! Cement may of been...More

This was a great find on our travels. It is hidden from the road but marked with signs if looking for them. Nice parking for your scooter and a good place to get some good food and a drink.
