Create an itinerary including Hospital Cave
A three-story medical safe house carved into the side of a cave, Hospital Cave was once a secret stronghold during the American-Vietnam War. Located in thick foliage nearing the entrance to the national park, the bomb-proof hospital represents an impressive feat of engineering, with a labyrinth of treatment rooms, offices, ammunition rooms, and even a small theater and swimming pool. Amble your way through empty, eery hallways, which served as home to many of the National Liberation Front or Vietcong from the hospital's completion in 1963 until 1975. You can hire a guide to take you through the hospital, then grab some local cuisine at the onsite restaurant. Arrange to visit Hospital Cave and other attractions in Cat Ba using our Cat Ba day trip app.

  • Most the rooms are empty or just have a bed frame in them. Very little to no information about what the rooms housed, what happened here etc. We could only guess it was from the Vietnam America war...
