As not a cave-searching person, I can rexommend you this place if you are in Ha Long Bay already. I woudn't go to Ha Long Bay just because of this place.
Anyway, bigger that it looks like from an outside. The air ianide is warm...More
We took this Princess Cruise shore excursion and were not disappointed. These are some pretty amazing limestone caves. You will need to climb a bit of steps to the narrow entry. Not a good site for mobility challenged persons. Inside the caves are unique and...More
A great way to experience these high ceiling limestone caves. The only way to get there is by passenger junk which includes a trip around the many local islands. Its only a half day trip but worth the pleasure of a boat trip to the...More
Part of our trip to Halong Bay included a visit to this cave. Sadly every other boat in the bay,(and there were literally dozens of them) was shipping their passengers to the cave at the same time. What is not mentioned to you before you...More
Junk boats actually just come up onto the steps and you basically just jump down, no other way to get onto the island.
A good 100 steps to get up to the entrance of the caves and come out on the opposite side, a definite...More
Yes, a lot of tours will offer pickup from the hotels in BaiChay. Just ask your tour company. The cruises generally leave from TuanChau.

Halong Bay problems for a solo traveler (5 Replies)
I'll be traveling solo to Hanoi, and am planning to include Halong Bay. Questions: 1. From the cruise ship, how do you go to the caves? Do they have little boats that can help you go to the caves?

Hi Guo_mei_xin, from cruise ship, you will get on tender to visit the caves. Most join-in boat tours only include 1-2 caves in their itinerary. A day tour is not worth it indeed. Happy travels!
Bai Chay Wharf and private boat hire (2 Replies)
Hello TA community, I'm looking for an update on whether travellers have been able to go to the Bai CHay Wharf and organise a local boat to Dong Thien Cung/Dau Go Cave. We will have already done a 2 night cruise through Bai Tu Long and just wanted to check out the cave before heading back to Hanoi in the afternoon. Thanks Sherryl

Many cruises that starts from Bai Chay wharf now moved to Tuan Chau pier. After you finish your Bai Tu Long bay trip, just go to Tuan Chau pier to have more cruise options.
