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.

Stalligmites & stalligtites......a lovely walk through these fantastic caves...... But with the numbers going through bound to increase as tourist numbers increase I really fear for the future of this fragile environment. All those people in seemingly uncontrolled numbers breathing out vast quantities of CO2 is bound to have serious consequences in years to come. A visit worth doing if... More

We visited as part of a shore excursion in Dec 2013. Excellent boat ride there (but beware of the ladies who will push you to buy tourist junk at three to five times the price you can find them at the market on shore). There are uneven crumbling steps up and down at the entrance and exit to the caves,... More
