The New York Times listed top 52 destinations in 2014, and Son Doong Cave in Quang Binh Province ranked the 8th.
Journalist of the New York Time David W.Lloyde, who had a trip to Son Doong this year, showed his impression to the cave on the paper. This is the third time he visit Vietnam, and also the most interesting trip of all (he visited Ha Long Bay and Sapa before). He used very beautiful and strong words to describe the imposing and spectacular beauty of Son Doong.
Son Doong is located in the series of Phong Nha- Ke Bang caves in Quang Binh Province in the centre region of Vietnam. It was discovered in 2009 April by British Caving Association led by Howard Limbirt. They explored imposing and majesty size of Son Doong and reported that it is the world’s largest cave. With the height of 200m, the width of 150m and the length of at least 5km, Son Doong is featured by amazing and huge stalactites, a stream running through the cave and natural primeval forest inside the cave.
Son Doong is now attracting a great attention of discovering lovers. However, the number of visitors allowed to visit Son Doong is limited, even though you have a big pocket of money. Because exploring Son Doong is not an easy trip and it also requires a lot of skills for adventurous journey, you need to pass some physical and health tests and wait for a very long “line” of traveler signing up for the trip to discover Son Doong.
Son Doong is highly estimated by a lot of international travel websites or newspapers. The famous names such as Telegraph, National Geographic, Business Insider, Huffington, etc. introduced the beauty of Son Doong and predicted it will be one of the top destinations of the world in the future.
