The world’s largest known cave, Son Doong, in Quang Binh province, has been named as one of the dream destinations of 2019 in an article by the prestigious travel guide company Lonely Planet.

Son Doong, the largest cave in the world, is ranked third in the list, after the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru and the cultural, music, art festival ‘Burning Man’ in Nevada.
Lonely Planet wrote: “To make sure you don’t miss out on making your travel dreams come true in 2019”.
The article described that the incredible depths of the world’s largest cave lures in travellers who want a true adventure. But the arduous journey into this subterranean site makes booking a trek essential. The major tour operator that takes travellers inside, Oxalis Adventure Tours, says on its website that less than 300 spaces remain for 2019 tours.
In 2019, Quang Binh Provincial Department of Tourism coordinated some units to work with major media companies in the world to implement some reality television programmes in Son Doong Cave and Phong Nha – Ke Bang.
