Son Doong Cave, Quang Binh province has been ranked 8th out of 52 places to go in 2014 by The New York Times.

“Son Doong Cave in the Quang Binh province of central Viet Nam is one of the world’s largest caves and is now, for the first time, accessible to tourists, thanks to the tour operator Oxalis," The New York Times said in its description of the cave.

“Huge shafts of light penetrate its vast caverns, allowing forests of 100-foot-tall trees to thrive in spaces big enough to accommodate 40-story skyscrapers. Colossal 260-foot stalactites are also present,” it said in sharing the magnitude of the cave.

The New York Times also named several types of animals including monkeys, hornbills, and flying foxes that visitors might see if they visit. These creatures have been spotted in Son Doong Cave, which was first fully explored in 2009.

“While trips into Son Doong are limited in number (only 220 permits for the year) and to visitors with deep pockets (over $6,000 per trip), the nearby and more affordable Tu Lan Cave is also now open to adventurous travelers,” the report shared for travelers who want to visit somewhere else in the area.

Son Doong cave has recently been named the largest cave in the world by British Cave Research Association and selected as one of the most beautiful in the globe by many newspapers.
