We stopped at these caves for a look during our boat cruise of Halong Bay. The formations in the cave are interesting and colorful because they have installed lights throughout the cave. For serious cavers, their are many cave formations in the U.S. that are more spectacular but while visiting Vietnam it is an interesting place to visit for about... More

After a steep climb from the dock we entered the caves. We were lucky we went there was not many people so we could take a leisurely walk around. Be careful and wear good shoes as it can be a little slippery. The lights shine on all the rock formations highlighting them. The route is planned out so you just... More

This was our second cave stop; the first being Sung Sot. This cave is not as large as Sung Sot. One website has Sung Sot at 10,000 square meters (12,000 square yards) whereas the sign at the entrance for Thien Cung Cave says its area is 3,000 square meters (3,250 square yards). Like Sung Sot, you will have to climb... More

CC ( 2014.07.31 ) I and my son visited there on Halong Bay tour. Because of hot weather, we tired a little. So we agonized over whether go or not. If we were not going there, maybe we will regret to not go. The cave was very beautiful and cool. The view of cave was glittering with coloful lights. About... More

Wonder what the fuss is about this place. Lots of people queueing up to enter this cave, which is hardly any spectacular or with any historical importance. Go if u really have never seen a cave or if u really wanna get out of the cruise ship.

We went here with our tour and I did not what to expect. I've been to some caves in Laos but this was the first one with stalagmites and stalactites in this size - incredible! Before we entered you could understand that it would be crowded hence to the number of boats outside. It took a while to get around... More

It is quite touristy here and can get very crowed by late morning/midday. The caves themselves are very good, and BIG... But due to the crowds, you are going around at snails pace.

Stalagmites and stalactites in large scale. Absolutely breathtakingly beautiful. BUT we were there with at least 5-600 other tourists. No joke, it was crawling pace getting through the cave, not that this was a problem but it was over crowded and overwhelming. The cave is lit up with bright coloured lights and whilst this makes it look 'pretty', it does... More

we stopped by the cave as part of our halong bay cruise. it's a neat cave. you can learn, or be refreshed, on your high school geology. the limestone islands that dot the bay are great and getting a glimpse at another part of ecology is fun. it is a walk up some small steps that are wet. be careful.
