Hospital Cave

Hospital Cave

Interesting with a guide

More on Cat Ba Island
Hospital Cave was a secret, bomb-proof hospital built during the American War and was used as a safe house for VC leaders until 1975.
Travelfish says:

Access is via a woodland path and some rickety steps and inside you will find a selection of concrete rooms. The cave is often included as part of an island tour and is also easy to reach from Cat Ba town by motorbike or motorbike taxi (around 200,000 VND return) en route to the national park. It is a fascinating stop off, particularly for those interested in the war.

Entry is 15,000 VND but we’d highly recommend paying an extra 30,000 VND for a guide as there is no information in the cave.

The cave is located 10 kilometres north of Cat Ba town, inland, on the way to the national park. Look out for a sign on the right saying Hospital Cave and pay at the store opposite.
