This is a really enjoyable experience to do whilst exploring Halong Bay. It isn’t much of an effort to do but has some interesting sights located inside the cave. Would recommend this to anyone able to do this.

Thien Canh Son Cave is the only cave in the Bai Tu Long area of Halong Bay, so it is included on most of the cruise boats itineraries that are licensed to operate in this area. But Thien Canh Son is a dark, dank and...More

Loads of tourists on this small cave island. It's very crowded and there isn't that much to see. The most exciting part of our little trip here (literally a 60 min stopover) was seeing a little snake crawling across the steps. There's also a nice...More

Small caves not too much to walk if you do a cruise it’s a good experience together. The fishing market is very close to the caves. Little slippery steps so wear proper shoes.

Short climb to entry of cave but no need for runners/trainers - sandals are fine. Quite a small cave but nonetheless worth a visit. After exiting the cave you can make your way down to a small manmade beach which is stunning.

A rather unimpressive cave, this place is completely overrun with cruise boats and tourists. The lines into the cave are long and often congested as aged overweight people struggle to climb the steps in the heat and humidity. We should have just stayed on the...More

This rocky island is one of 1,969 such small islands/rocks in Halong Bay. They are a remarkable sight. This particular one features a two-part cave, composed of a small ante-chamber and a main chamber. Our boat moored about 150 metres from its jetty. Our visit...More
