It's not really a long climb and the steps are not scary at all. There's a part outside of the cave with a magnificent view of Halong Bay but there are a LOT of tourists, it will take you forever to get a picture w/out...More

It's the first stop of our one-day cruise. The cave has a space seemingly larger than the island it's in. Many stalagmites and stalactites to look at... similar to (but certainly not as grand as) the Carlsbad Cavern in New Mexico. After a pleasant walk...More

BUSY So many tour groups. We all just followed the conga line up the steps and through the cave (and this isn’t even high season for tourists). The cave itself was OK, but the volume of people spoiled it.

Hidden gem of mother nature. Surreal experience. Visited the caves in a group with my husband as a part of the activities planned by Alisa Cruise. It was like living Indiana Jones and Jumanji. Definitely want to come back.
