QUẢNG BÌNH (ANN): Beautiful shots from Vietnam's north-central province of Quảng Bình were featured at the latest MV Alone Pt II of Alan Walker, a British-born Norwegian DJ and record producer, on Dec 27.

Stunning views from inside Sơn Đoòng, the world’s largest natural cave, along with Đoòng Village and other spectacular scenes of Quảng Bình have captivated viewers.

Particularly, Walker identified the location of Sơn Đoòng in Bố Trạch District, Quảng Bình Province, right at the title of the MV.

The appearance of breathtaking shots from Quảng Bình in the MV is expected to help the north-central province promote tourism worldwide.

According to the provincial Department of Tourism, Walker’s MV will be shown at a countdown party to welcome the New Year on Dec 31 at the Phong Nha tourism centre in Bố Trạch District.

Sơn Đoòng Cave is located in the heart of the Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng National Park, a Unesco World Heritage Site in Quảng Bình.

The cave, which has a large, fast-flowing underground river inside, was discovered by local resident Ho Khanh in 1991.

Khanh’s discovery made world news in April 2009 after a group of British scientists from the British Cave Research Association, led by Howard and Deb Limbert, conducted a geographical survey of Phong Nha-Kả Bàng.

Sơn Đoòng Cave has since drawn international attention and become a staple on adventure bucket lists for travellers from around the world.

According to National Geographic, the cave claims the title of the largest cave passage cross-section in the world.

In 2015, it was chosen as the backdrop for the American fantasy film Pan starring Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund, Rooney Mara, Levi Miller and Amanda Seyfried.

In 2017, Quảng Bình Province was also featured in the American blockbuster Kong: Skull Island. — Vietnam News/Asia News Network
