In my opinion very interesting place, of course there is no hospital furniture anymore but the place itself is nice to see. Does not take a long time to walk through.

It was very interesting visit. It's great to have a guide as you will get a lot more from the visit than walking around on your own. Be ready to climb stairs to get to the entrance. The rooms are actually quite large. Can't believe...More

Overpriced and lacks any info about the place. You can get a guide, but I’m unsure if that adds to the cost. You can walk through in a matter of 2 minutes. It is cool if you read about the history before hand and are...More

Smaller than what i imagined but it was nice, the guide of the cave walked along with us and introduces us to every corner. Bring your camera because the view from here is beautiful.

On your bike ride as part of the tour you can fide down to the small cave. Concrete running through it so not sure that it is a natural or man made cave.

We visited this cave for about 20 minutes. There a decent amount to see and there are a few levels. Always interesting to see the ingenuity of the Vietnamese during the war. No need for the guide in our opinion. Worth a short visit.

So yeah, the name pretty much says it all. It's less than $2 to go in, so if history is your thing (or if you feel guilt that your country made people have to be treated inside of a cave), it's kind of cool. Otherwise,...More

There are probably interesting stories here, but nothing is documented, and the guide included in the ticket is very basic and doesn't tell you much. Not worth it.

I think I probably should have gotten a guide. You get there, park your bike across the way. Pay either 10,000 dong to park or buy something to eat or drink and buy your ticket. You walk up a bunch of stairs and there it...More

I booked my cruise on the island itself. Resorts have cruise details Paloma Cruises was one company.
