The cave is very beautiful. The setup is a nice touch to improve the look. This is a must see if you visit Halong Bay

Going up and down the cave is definitely not for the elderly. The steps are quite steep. The inside of the cave is beautiful and the lighting made it even better. Our guide told us that the English name of the cave is Paradise Cave.

Very beautiful and stunning stagalatite and stagalamite lime stone caves , are very intelligently given coloured light effects to highlight different shapes very effectively. Highly recommended. Very photogenic spot. Wear sports shoes , not high heels.

Having just had the delight of cruising around Halong Bay I didn't think the Caves would be anything I had not seen before in Cheddar Gorge. However the Cave was a fantastic surprise, brilliantly illuminated with fantastic colours and the height and formation of the cave was breathtaking.Would certainly recommend a visit here

What a surprise after lovely cruise! Lots of stairs to incredible very open caves, lighting highlights the rock formations. Take time to just stare and see the hidden gems!

Great formations, really beautiful, man-made lighting accentuates the beauty of the caves. Good to go before lunch to escape the crowds.

Beautiful large cave, easily accessible from Halong Bay up a few steps from the jetty. Fantastic stalactite and stalagmite formations, but illuminated with bright multi-coloured lights, making it look somewhat Disneyesque. Very crowded, but still worth a visit during a sail round Halong Bay.

The climb and visit to the cave is easy and enjoyable. While most limestone caves are beautiful with the lighting and the landscape. This cave is not exception and still a visit is recommended.

We stopped here on our cruise of Ha Long Bay There is a fair climb up steps to the entrance to the caves,but if you are able to do it ,you wont be disappointed. The caves are not at all claustrophobic as they are very spacious and lit with beautiful coloured lights. Walking inside is fairly easy as you are... More
