HCM CITY – Vietnamese author Hà Quốc Anh’s book about the world largest cave, Sơn Đoòng, was launched at the HCM City Book Fair on Wednesday.
The book is in Vietnamese and English. It is titled Sơn Đoòng – Thiên Đường Trong Lòng Đất (Sơn Đoòng – Paradise under the Earth) and features photos Anh took during a 10-day trip to Sơn Đoòng Cave in 2015.
The first part of the book highlights general information about Sơn Đoòng Cave. The second part of the book showcases brief pieces written by Anh, leading readers through his emotional journey.
“I want to present the book to people who love nature and the mysterious beauty of Earth,” Anh said.
Anh is 36 years old. He is one of very few Vietnamese citizens to explore Sơn Đoòng Cave. About 700 people have toured the cave, most of them foreigners.
The hardcover book measures 24.5cm by 32cm. Phương Nam Book is the exclusive distributor of the book’s first printing of 1,500 copies.
