This is a slow paddle up a lazy river through amazing limestone formations and through three Grottos with barely enough head room. The rowers, mostly women, operate the paddles with their feet. I studied them closely but still can not work out how they keep...More

Had amazing 3-hour boat trip to this dreamlike complex. The boat take us to different narrow caves, be careful with your head. We join to row the boat, say "xin chao" to smiling Vietnamese. Well worth!

This boat trip is one of our highlights in Vietnam. We were told to avoid the weekends because then there are many local people visiting. There are some stairs leading to a valley with a swamp like atmosphere.
