I wouldn't go far out of my way to see this but it was a fairly fascinating opportunity to see the impacts of the war. Tickets were really cheap and the Hospital Cave is right near another cave that I didn't see and a hike...More

It was very interesting to see how the Vietcong managed a hospital here, during the American War (I’m American). The elaborate structure was built inside a cave, with aid from China. Many of the rooms are staged with mannequins and other artifacts of the war....More

Went with a group and none of us did much research so we were very excited at how big this was! It’s amazing how much was done here to create a huge underground hospital basically from thin air. The stairs are steep but it wasn’t...More

After some confusion at the entry with a lady waving tickets for 40k, we paid, she said we would have a guide and so went up to the hospital cave. There wasn't a guide so my daughter went back down to ask. The guide arrived...More
