Kong: Skull Island, the latest reboot of the King Kong franchise, came out last weekend and immediately captured our heart and soul with its stunning cinematography. And if you still have no idea where the gorgeous “Skull Island” is, no more secrets: the film was shot in these 4 places in Vietnam.
Die hard fans, pack your bags quickly before all the tours are sold out!
1. Van Long Nature Reserve
Located in Ninh Binh Province, this is the biggest nature reserve in the Northern Delta of Vietnam. It is characterized by the crystal-clear water, flocks of storks and being home to the Delacour’s Langur, one of the rarest monkey species in the world.
Here are some behind-the-scenes photos of the Kong: Skull Island crew in Ninh Binh:
2. The Trang An Grottoes
Another attraction in Ninh Binh Province, this UNESCO World Heritage Site consists of 31 lakes and 48 caves in a scenic landscape complex. In a two-hour boat ride with the local residents, you will be amazed by how much this misty place resembles Neverland.
Here is Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts posing at Trang An:

3. Phong Nha – Ke Bang National Park
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is located in Quang Binh Province in the North Central Coast of Vietnam. It consists of 300 caves, including Son Doong, the largest cave in the world.
Jordan Vogt-Roberts is swallowed by the grandiosity of Son Doong! Can you even spot him here?
He looks so excited!
4. Ha Long Bay
Ha Long means “where the dragon lands,” which speaks to the significance of the bay in the Vietnamese culture. This UNESCO World Heritage Site consists of 1969 islands and is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Vietnam.
Jordan Vogt-Roberts and Tom Hiddleston seem to enjoy the view of Ha Long Bay:
He looks quite emotional on his last shooting days.
