Sheikh Ahmed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates, took his family and friends to Vietnam’s Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park in April, two months after he explored Son Doong, the world’s largest cave, in the same area.
While his family and friends enjoyed the park’s marvelous caves, Ahmed discovered beautiful and peaceful villages along the park, located in the north-central province of Quang Binh, in his own way.
