The name of the cave translates as "Cave of the Heavenly Palace", and it is one of more popular caves that are included as part of visitors' tour at Halong Bay. The journey to the cave requires a 10-min walk from the jetty via a flight of man-made steps. Walking inside the deep and spacious cave, one will immediately notice... More

I am very impressed with the beauty of this cave, not as big as other caves or very wow experience but it bring a full picture of cave image in Halong. I personally like this cave especially choosing a non touristic time to visit

You have to climb many steps to reach this nice cave. Very stunning formation on the wall and roof. They are decorated with artificial lights. There is very nice small manemade fountain inside. At one place, light comes from the roof top which looks very stunning. Water droplets still fall from the roof.

I really liked it. The rock formations are very beautiful. It's just a little bit too touristy. There are tons of people cramming into this space, so it's very humid, especially in the summer

It's really a nice amazing cave. Cool atmosphere. However, the artificial lights makes the cave so colourful and it's not natural at all. However, overall is good.

I found this cave to be very beautiful. There were many formations of stalactites & stalagmites. The cave was lit with color lights, which added to the beauty of the place. The guide mentioned that the cave was discovered many years ago by the French, but they kept it a secret until a Vietnamese fisherman came across the place by... More

It is a really nice place to visit... i thought it was just another cave with stalagtites and malachtites (or whatever) but is is huge on the inside and has beautifull lights... you have to climb a lot of stairs to come there.

Stopped off here as part of our day trip around Halong Bay. If you have trouble with steps/stairs this probably isn't the place for you to visit. You climb up steep wooden steps to enter into the caves, enter via a small entrance and then the cave just opens up and you are greeted with an array of colours of... More
