Hang Son Doong, the largest cave in the world!

Wow - that thing is huge - probably has it's own climate too! <whispers ... and dinosaurs ... ;) >


OoOOoOOo Google it - there are some amazing pics out there! Internet says the gov has put money aside for a cable car and luxury resort (there's plenty of room) to bring in more of the tourist industry.

I closed my account
I hate when they make beautiful areas into a "resort" for "tourists"
fuck that would be a great squat

Yea I was reading about that place as im going to asia next year around this time and its on the list, hopefully I get a chance to see it :>

EDIT: forgot to mention the gov has put a tight lock on it and only allows agencies to tour around people in the cave ex: "this year only 220 permits will be handed out to tour the cave" they are sucking money, as much as they can, for it. The cost for the tour is 3,000 dollars. I am still looking things up so im not 100 percent on this but I think you can

fuck, i understand limiting visitors to protect the area, but three grand to visit? that's crazy.
Yeah, it's pretty fucked, but what can ya do.
When I eventually make my way to Vietname, I'm going to try to sneak into the cave for free

Flying into bangkok to do my first international circuit in 2 weeks. Very excited, this place is at the top of my list of things to see! I think I read somewhere that they have opened it up to allow people to visit more freely (?) Either way I'll report back

Anyone make it there recently?

Total amount
$70.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $70.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $70.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $70.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
