Vietnam has one more world heritage site (July 03, 2003)

Vo Luong Nhi
The Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park has just been recognised as a world heritage site, becoming the fifth in Vietnam.

The recognition came from the 27th plenary meeting of the Committee of World Heritage being held at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France from June 30 to July 5.

The Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park was upgraded from the Phong Nha Natural Preservation Site, with a total area of 85,754 hectares. This is part of the oldest limestone area in Asia which was formed over 400 million years ago. This is also a place for high value of biological diversity with 568 flora and 876 fauna species, including those listed in the Red Book of the world and Vietnam. The place is also well known with its cave system, particularly the Phong Nha cave.

The meeting saw the participation of 160 member countries of the Treaty on the World Heritage of UNESCO.

More than 30 cultural and natural sites of member countries have been recognised as world heritage sites during the meeting.
