Wow such a natural wonder. The cave shows the stalagmites, and the formation over thousands of years.

The cave is nice, cool inside but crowed. So sometimes we needed to go very slowly after other people.

These are stunning caves at which many of the boats cruising in Halong Bay stop. They have been considerably developed so that there is sufficient lighting to see all the dramatic shapes the limestone has created over 1000's of years. Needless to say, many of them have been named. The walk-ways are also developed to cater for the large numbers of visitors, rarely single file and quite safe underfoot. Possibly not so good if you are not comfortable walking for an hour or so in slightly tricky circumstances. Well worth a visit.

Certainly interesting though it’s important to wear better foot wear than flip flops, but just having been out on the Bay in a kayak, at the time did not think about this! Have been told it can get very busy but on the day of visit was only our party of a dozen.

From the outside this looks busy and overcrowded like most of the places around Ha Long Bay, however as a geography studEnt, this was fascinating for me, the caves were huge & there was room after room. Really cool, would defo recommend a visit. there were hundreds of Chinese tourists who would literally shove past you and push you but other than that it was brilliant

My husband and I went to this cave on a 2 day cruise of Halong Bay in a Bhaya Cruises Junk. I suffer from claustrophobia and was worried about going into a cave. After going a tender we walked up some steps to this very accessible open cave so I was able to really enjoy this visit.

This cave was discovered in 1993 by a local fisherman, he advised his local government and they spent the next five years turning it into a memorable tourist destination.
The way up from the quay is easy enough involving a fair number of steps but at 80 I managed just fine and it was certainly worth the effort.
All of the work that has been done such as the steps, the lighting, the walkways in fact everything is tio the highest standard to ensure complete safety and enjoyment. The lighting is good enough for most cameras and my iPhone had no difficulty taking the most amazing pictures some of which looked like Chinese paintings.
Pay attention to all the signs and take care in the areas where water has dripped as they may be slippery otherwise enjoy this amazing wonder.

Used by fisherman in the distant past to shelter from stormy seas. Middens of discarded shells, the molluscs used to supplement their diet of rice. Beautiful stalagmites and stalactites display their glory with well placed lighting

This cave is not one of the most popular caves in the area. However it is archeologically interesting cave in the history of the bay. It is good to have local guide.

Our boat took us to the very entrance of the cave and then we entered the magical cavern. Take time to see and read all the history of the caves before you venture inside to see the magnificent stalactites and stalagmite formations. Wear sensible shoes as it can be slippery and its rather cool inside. You can get some excellent photographs here also. A real special moment during our cruise.
