Dong Hoi town and Phong Nha are not the Open Bus stop.
Dong Hoi is on the train route Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh. 

Phong Nha-Kebang National Park is approx 55km NW from Dong Hoi Town, Quang Binh Province, Central Vietnam.

From Dong Hoi Town – Phong Nha Farmstay (Approx 35km)
Car transfer service of farmstay

Otherwise, visitors can take taxi from Dong Hoi town to Phong Nha-Kebang National Park. There are some hotels located in front of the park main entrance.

To Hue and Danang
Cheap, convenient and fun
There is 16-seat mini bus departs from village every early morning to Hue and Danang and offers pick up service at farmstay at 05.45. It’s the cheapest way to Hue and Danang (150,000VND) if you don’t want to charter private car for 125USD per car.

I enjoyed the moment in this local transportation. Only me as a foreigner among friendly Vietnameses from the same village were heading to big cities. A girl who sat next to me asked for Hue’s map from my hand to assist the driver to drop me off at Hue’s tourist area correctly.

Around
Phong Nha is rural area, not convenient to get around by public transportation.

For tourists, there may have bike, motorbike and car rental at hotels.
In case of park visit, it is a vast area and scattered tourist’s destinations. We should book group tour or private tour with guide to explore.

For Phong Nha Cave and Thien Son Cave that the boat pier is located at the main entrance. It’s easy to do by yourself. However, Dragon boat is 8-seat and 220,000VND per boat for fare. Sharing with other visitors may be applied.
