Dong Hoi

Trip Planner Asia  /  Vietnam  /  Quang Binh Province  /  Dong Hoi
(4.5/5 based on 1,100+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: nature, beaches, historic sites
The pleasant seaside and port town of Dong Hoi sits close to a World Heritage Site national park. The caves, grottoes, and karst landscape of the national park brings in its fair share of visitors, but Dong Hoi remains charmingly devoid of mass tourism. A few abandoned buildings bring memories of the American War, with Dong Hoi regularly attacked during the war because of its status as a major center for the North Vietnamese Army (NVA). The rivers and canals of the town represent highlights of Dong Hoi trips, perhaps best seen on a motorbike or pushbike tour.

Where to stay

While tourism remains fairly undeveloped in Dong Hoi, you'll still see plenty of accommodations available in town. Ranging from riverside hotels, to cosy homestays, to backpacker-friendly hostels, the accommodations here can be found close to the waterways, with many enjoying scenic views out across the canals, or along the coast. To be closer to the national park, look to the north. Close to the major regional roads that run up through the karst terrain, you'll find a selection of homestays, farms with accommodations to rent, and a couple of hostels.
