Renowned Dutch DJ and record producer Martin Garrix spent four days exploring Son Doong Cave, one of the world's largest natural caves, which is located in Quang Binh Province, north-central Vietnam, describing the trip as one of a lifetime.
He called the four days in the cave "the most magical days ever."
He shared a post of his journey with 10 photos taken at Son Doong Cave on Instagram on Saturday, which has attracted more than 170,000 likes and 1,000 comments.
Many of his followers praised the beauty of the cave, saying "fantastic, unreal," "epic," "so beautiful," or "looks absolutely amazing."
Norwegian DJ and music producer Alan Walker, who is primarily known for his single 'Faded' left a comment under Garrix’s post, saying, “Filmed one of my music videos there! Amazing location!”
In 2019, Alan Walker went to Vietnam to film his music video Alone Pt. II, which has attracted more than 361 million views on YouTube.
Many Vietnamese fans thanked Garrix for coming to Son Doong Cave and invited international friends to visit Vietnam.
