Often confused with Quang Ninh, Quang Binh is a place with unique beauty and magnificent natural landscapes. Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park, a UNESCO-recognized heritage site, Nhat Le Beach, and Bao Ninh Beach are some notable attractions here. And what attracts adventurers here is the mesmerizing system of caves. One of the most prominent caves is Son Doong Cave, the world’s largest cave with a unique ecosystem.
