Quang Binh is a unique tourist destination and attracts a large number of domestic and foreign visitors. In the movie Kong: Skull Island, the scenery in Quang Binh is reproduced as the home of King Kong.
The scenic spots of Quang Binh, such as Chuot (Mouse) Cave, Da Deo Pass, Tu Lan Cave have all appeared extremely impressed and made the viewer satisfied. These are extremely new locations and very few people ever come to.
Chuot (Mouse) Cave and Tu Lan cave system will only be put into operation in 2016. This is a rather risky tourist destination, so I recommend that if you come here you need to prepare carefully both health and belongings if you want to travel self-sufficient. With this route you book tours will be very expensive.
So on the tour schedule to explore the Kong, I will instead of Chay River – Dark Cave. This is a tourist area that many of you choose to come here.
