The way to Thiên Cung is a perilous one, covered on both sides by thick forest. After entering a narrow gate, the grotto’s 130-meter-long girth opens up. Getting in we are more astonished in front of the very animated and splendid beauty which is made from stalactite. On the east wall of the grotto, there is a grandiose and imposing... More

This cave is very beautiful inside with its coloured lighting and the numerous beautiful stalagmites and stagtites. The view down Halong Bay from the mouth of the cave is spectacular.

I travel to Halong Bay several times and I found that Thien Cung cave is the most beautiful cave. There are a lot of stalagtites and stalagmites raising from the ground or ceiling of the cave. Combinated with the artificial colorful lights, the cave looks itself more mystery. But you can only travel to this cave in a day trip.... More

The boat trip to the caves was amazing, as were the views out to sea once at the caves, however the caves were a bit tacky and superficial. Rather than telling us any meaningful history about the cave, we just walked around the tackily lit stalagmites and stalactites and stopped every now and then to 'guess what it was'. At... More

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
