Plenty of explanations for travellers, with a map of the route before you begin. Plenty of room for tour groups to pass each other if necessary. Plenty of rest stops if required. Nice, big, well lit and well laid out grotto full of interesting formations. Highly recommended.

Located on a small island in Halong Bay, Dong Thien Cung Caves are a beautiful limestone rock formations. From where you disembark from you boat (junk), you first need to climb quite a few steps.

One of the stops we made while crusing the Halong Bay was this cave. Amazing formations of stalactites and stalagmites filled the cave. It was lited with colourful lights that made it beautiful. This attraction is not suitable for the old and those with weak legs as we need to climb steep steps up.

The caves were well worth the walk but are very busy very early in the day. So go early and beat the crowds,

Ha Long Bay is a must see. The cost is approximately $29 for a day trip. Food and transportation is included in the cost. I recommend packing sunscreen,a hat and or an umbrella to help protect you from the direct sunlight. Great experience and breathtaking sights.

The cave is massive with a lot of interesting rock formations. The path is clearly marked and easy to navigate. They have set up a lot of lights within the cave which show off some of the great scenery. If you have the time I'd recommend visiting the cave on your visit to Halong Bay.
