The time indicated is estimated to arrive at the park from Huè is incorrect, in fact it does not take 2h and 30m but abundant 4h this is a figure not to be underestimated since in any case it is to be evaluated 8/9 hours by bus for activities that lasts from 3/4 hours. Yes ok the cave and the boat ride are very nice but overall "maybe" as proposed by Huè is not worth it. Surely if one has no alternative this is the best offer on the site. Surely it is better to sleep 2/3 nights near the park so as to have more options to visit the whole site since it is very large.

Okay perfect, thankyou We were disappointed with the trip On the website its says 2.5hours to travel to the caves but it actually took double that time to get there and back not including stops.So I feel it was falsely advertised on If I would have know it was a 5 hour bus journey there and back we wouldn't have booked the trip. Also it says English speaking guide but the guide spoke mostly in vietnamese and then translated it to one sentence in English so we spent most of the day not knowing what was going on and the other guests had to try and help us. also on the way back I informed the guide that I needed the toilet so asked when we would be stopping and he said 45mins can you wait. I informed him I couldn't and asked if we could stop before. He said they would stop at the next service station but then proceeded to drive the full 45minutes without stopping.

The cave is very beautiful

The road from Hue is very long. 8h round trip. Only two hours on site. I'm not sure it's been worth it since Hue. The guide is nice, but his accent in English is not always easy to understand.
