This is nice cave for tourist when travelling to Halong Bay Vietnam. But as its beauty, so many tourist come and make it too busy here. Tourist touch limestone and made them dirty or coming to dark.

If you visit Ha Long bay take the time to see this attraction, and go on a guided tour! The wonderful stories of the formations are a part of the experience and are a revealing insight into the culture and philosophy of Vietnam.
