This was part of our La Vela cruise and we imagine all other overnight cruises and day trippers also visited this cave. It takes about thirty minutes to transit the cave and it has many ups and downs so not for those with limited mobility....More

At the turnaround point of our half day trip on the bay. A short climb up well constructed stairs. Open to an amazing display of natural, beautiful, large and well lit chambers. Upon exiting a great view(best) of the Bay. Be sure to take pics...More

On our cruise in Halong Bay our first stop was an island with this amazing three chamber cave, the stalagmites and stalagtites colorfully illuminated. We took our small boat to the landing area, climbed up quite a few stairs and then walked a well-lit path...More

again, the lighting in the caves is something not to miss. We loved the way they put the colors in the lighting together. It was a wonderful experience.
