A BBC film crew arrived in Quang Binh Province on Thursday to prepare for an international tourism promotion campaign shot inside the world's largest cave Son Doong.

The film crew consists of six members, led by producer Theo Webb, as well as cameramen and a safety expert. Nearly a ton of specialized film making equipment is required for the production.

They will spend 18 days filming at Son Doong, En, Va caves and several other scenes in Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park.

Their arrival followed the invitation of Oxalis Adventure, the only tour operator allowed to host tours to Son Doong Cave, to promote Vietnam's tourism through a documentary film series in preparation for the reopening of international tourism, Oxalis said.

The BBC's natural history programs always attract a large worldwide audience.

Sir David Attenborough, a well-known BBC presenter, introduced their 2022 nature documentary series during the U.N. Climate Change Conference (COP26) in the U.K. in October 2021.

The wonders of Asia will be brought to life in amazing detail for this landmark natural history series, which is expected to reach more than 500 million people around the world.

Son Doong opened to tourists in 2013 with a five-kilometer-long system, 150 meters high and 200 meters wide, containing at least 150 individual caves, a dense subterranean jungle and several underground rivers.

All 1,000 slots for adventure tours to Son Doong in 2022 have been fully booked by domestic tourists.
