Quang Binh (VNA)
– Phong
Nha-Ke Bang National Park is among top experiences in Vietnam voted by Lonely
Planet, a renowned travel guide book publisher, for another year.

The national park, located in
the heart of central Quang Binh province, came third on the 2019 list, after food tour and Hoi An ancient town.

Lonely Planet describes Phong
Nha-Ke Bang as one of Vietnam’s most spectacular national park with “jagged
hills shrouded in verdant rain forest and mountain river coursing through
impressive ravines” above ground.

Underground, “a fortunate selection of travellers can experience the cathedral-like chambers of
Hang Son Doong, the world’s largest cave,” it

accessible for visitors are “the ziplining and kayaking
thrills of Hang Toi (Dark Cave), and the ethereal beauty of aptly named
Paradise Cave,” it adds.

Meanwhile, food tour has been
named the top experience in the country for the first time. “The highlight of any trip,
Vietnamese food balances sour and
sweet flavours, crunchy and silky textures, fried and steamed dishes, soups and
salads,” says Lonely Planet.

“Eating out in Vietnam is a feast for the eyes and treat
for palate,” it says.

The list also includes Ha Long Bay, Hue,
Ho Chi Minh City, Beer, Extreme North, Cat Tien National Park, Markets, Phu
Quoc Island, Hanoi, Con Dao Island, Ba Be National Park, Coffee Time, Sapa
Trekking, Dalat, Battle Sites, and Mui Ne./.
