Dong Hoi, the quaint seaside capital of Vietnam’s Quang Binh province, has an untouched charm that is all its own. Its pristine white, sandy beaches all along the South China Sea and the fertile banks of the Nhat Le River that the city stands beside, need to be visited to be believed! Despite having suffered during the Vietnam War, the port town has risen from its ashes once again to resume its role as the capital of this district. Dong Hoi is also the gateway to the mountainous and forested Phong Nha region, the nearest city to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park.
