  • We made the sailing tour of Halong Bay, fantastic crossing, spend the night on the boat, beautiful and fascinating. Then we descended and started a walk, until we found these caves, very deep, large and beautiful, did not know of their existence. The figures are shocking, it's exciting to take a walk inside them. I don't give more detail because the surprise is wonderful

  • The cave is beautiful! The view surrounded here is amazing! Wonderful bay! The fruit is fresh and has reasonable prices! but the seafood is very, very expensive! Should not litter to the water!
  • Amazing natural cave at Ha Long Bay, there is no tour guide following and telling any information about the cave. We walked ahead on round route, sometimes like playing hide and seek but you will never get lost there. Worth discovering for local people and of course foreign tourists.
