Most visitors coming here will enjoy the cool spring water, which stays around 20 degrees Celsius, surrounded by majestic mountains and green space. From the limestone rocks along the stream, the murmuring sound of the water with countless sounds of nature brings an exciting feeling to visitors. During the period from March to April each year, the scenery here is adorned with the golden color of brilliant saraca dives. The bright yellow flowers will be reflected on the clear blue water, creating a charming natural beauty.

Coming to Nuoc Mooc stream, in addition to having the opportunity to visit the nearby Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park, visitors can also admire the beauty of some birds, dragonflies or the diversity of flora, including many famous orchids.

Nhat Le beach

The cool and clear blue water, coupled with the vast sky, creates an open and romantic scenery.

Son Doong cave

If you have the opportunity to set foot in Quang Binh, do not forget to visit Son Doong cave in Bo Trach district. The cave has a width of 200 meters, the height of 150 meters, the length of at least 6.5 kilometers and an age of roughly 3 million years.

Son Doong cave owns the oldest karst system in Asia, which was formed 400-450 million years ago. The cave was eroded by the Rao Thuong River through millions of years, creating a giant tunnel underneath the limestone mountain. The cracks in the ceiling of the cave subsided, creating giant holes connected to the outside. The water falling from the ceiling of the cave over a long time has created many “cave pearls” with the size of a baseball. Also, the cave has an impressive primeval forest system inside that leaves every visitor surprised. All of them create a majestic and unique setting inside Son Doong cave that can not be found anywhere.

Vung Chua - Yen Island

Only about 3km from National Highway 1A, Vung Chua - Yen Island is a tourist destination that leaves a strong impression on visitors by its peaceful beauty. This land is surrounded by many islands, creating a closed terrain, so it is called “Vung”. In the past, there was a sacred pagoda here, so local people combined them altogether to have the name of “Vung Chua” (in Vietnamese, “Chua” is “pagoda”). Regarding the name of Yen Island, this place was called Hon Nom in the past, but later, due to the exploitation of swiftlets, it was changed to Yen Island (in Vietnamese, “Yen” is “swiftlet”).

Vung Chua - Yen Island is a beach with long stretches of white sand, clear blue sea, surrounded by a peaceful landscape of vast trees, creating a simple beauty and bringing a sense of relaxation.

Quang Phu sand dune

Only about 10km northeast of Dong Hoi city center, Quang Phu sand dune owns a height of nearly 100m with a pristine beauty. When coming here, you will be impressed by the white sand dunes that run close to the beach; and at the same time, you will feel lost like being in a desert. Sometimes you can see some green wild trees and brown dry branches amongst the grains of sand which blow around in the sea breeze all day.

Da Nhay beach

Located 26km from Dong Hoi city, Da Nhay Beach has a unique poetic beauty. Regarding the name of this destination, many of the rocks on the beach are said to look like inanimate animals racing to jump to the sea when there are waves, and as a result, it is known as “Da Nhay” (Jumping Rocks). The beach is surrounded by charming landscapes, clear blue water and rocks of all shapes and sizes. From a distance, visitors will be overwhelmed by the beauty of large rocks with different shapes, such as buffalo, elephant, tiger, rooster, hen, etc. Under the light of the dawn or sunset, listening to the wave sounds and inhaling the scent of the sea wind, you can find peace of mind.
