North-central Vietnam is never going to be Asia’s next beach
mecca or cultural hub – it’s a poor, traditional region with
a cool winter climate where cities like Vinh still bear the
scars of the American War. And yet if you budget a little time
here, you’ll find some curious sights, outstanding scenery
and wonderful excursions.
The one place that everyone’s talking about is the extraordinary Phong Nha region, home to three gargantuan cave
systems (including the world’s largest cave) set in a stunning national park of towering limestone hills and pristine
Ninh Binh, a region blessed with more karst-studded
mountains, also has its charm, as well as the fecund beauty
of Cuc Phuong on its doorstep. On the coast, port-resort
Dong Hoi makes a pleasing base away from the tourist trail
for a day or two.
