  • 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.
