We didn't read this on time unfortunately. We can also confirm that is closed :(
You can still see part of the bay from the coastline, but obviously it's not the same

Visited Poem Mountain on 6th Jan 2020 and it’s closed ☹️
We visited another place on LAN Ha Bay where you stay on floating house to experience fishermen lifestyle but with English speaking host, fresh seafood and free kayak all day long around the so much less crowded Lan Ha Bay. We had the whole bay, lagoon, beaches to ourselves.
The host have vast knowledge about the bay and its history and because of this experience it makes missing out Poem Mountain slightly easier to take.
Find in Airbnb, InnerX-Stay, floating Homestay in Lan Ha Bay. Hosted by Charles.
Many similar floating homes in Ha Long have been closed down by the government just like Poem Mountain so try it before they are close too.
Best of luck!

No way to go up. It is closed and the guard really won't let you through! it doesn't matter how much money you have left, it is not possible. We begged for 1.5 hours, with no result ..

1 month before my guest still climbed to the top even they closed this mount. She said she had to climbed over the closed gate. So I also tried to come here 2 weeks ago but the goverment totally closed all the entrance with security guard. You can not come anyway even Vietnamese. I saw many tourist had to come back with disappointment. Me too. While waiting for something better from goverment, tourist should not wait time to come here.

I just went there an hour ago (oct 23 2019) and all of the entrances are shut down, and the gatekeeoers wont let you through anymore. I tried for 2 or 3 hours as I came here just for the viewpoint, but to no avail.

Was there on the 18th Oct 2019 was told by the local there, the police has permanently closed this area due to disruption cause by some tourist that went up to the mountain.
Was quite disappointed that wasn’t able to go up to the mountain. Took a picture below the entrance. ):

After reading all the reviews and seeing the pictures we went early morning to see the sun rise. But the entrance is closed, there is a security guard at the middle entrance, who won’t let you through. So annoyed. Not sure how people are commenting a day before me and accessing the mountain. We tried to get round the security, it doesn’t seem possible.

The best check-in point in Halong - "the roof" of Halong
May 2019
In center of Halong city, Bai Tho Mountain is the best Halong check in point. Beautiful view with mountain and sea.

We went to the entrance today (13 October 2019). I asked a lady in front of they alley if we could enter the steps to the mountain and she said it was closed. I heard from a local that the government closed it permanently now.
