Fodor's Expert Review Ho Khanh's Homestay

Near the Phong Nha tourism center, Son Trach, Phong Nha, Quang Binh, Vietnam Fodor's Choice

On the banks of the Son River, on the edge of Phong Nha town, this ornately carved wooden traditional homestay provides family-friendly lodgings hosted by Mr. Ho Khanh, the original discoverer of the world's biggest cave. Rooms range from private riverside lodges with shared bathrooms to the beautiful, self-contained villas. Ho Khanh's is a very special place to stay, even if you don't factor in the celebrity company of "the King of the Caves."
