What people are saying about Central Vietnam

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.
