I had an amazing trip with my bff, the place is awesome, magnificent scenery. I and my friend enjoyed the boat trip going through the caves a lot, the water of the river is very clear, we actually could see the fish swimming around us, the seaweed feels like very near to us, such a wonderful peaceful feeling.

Not far from Hanoi but it is an ideal place to relax. I really miss its peaceful atmosphere and magnificent scenery. The thing I love most is open sky with overwhelming sunlight when getting out of each cave. Don't forget to bring a hat and camera.

The boat trip was good fun, you pay 150,000 vnd per person and 4 people can fit in a boat. We had a local lady as our rower, to which we felt very sorry at the end of the trip having rowed 4 heavy westerners about for 2 hours! The sights were great, the limestone features are as impressive as... More

This place is much more better than Tam coc and less turistic. The 2 hours boat trip is incredible, you pass throw huge caves snd you get to see the most wonderful landscapes. There is a temple in the middle if the water wich is precious!

90 kms from Hanoi, the boat tour around the grottoes is a breath of fresh air. Very peaceful and very relaxing. Awesome views! Loved the water caves but watch your head as they can get low when the tide is high.

This was a real highlight of our trip. Due to very high waters we couldn't go through all the caves - we had to lie flat in the boat to get through the ones that were open. The views of the countryside were lovely, the whole thing was peaceful and pleasant. Go early to avoid the queues.

This really is great stuff. Skiffing through long, low caves where unobtrusive electric light has been installed. For one, you have to hunker down in the boat, steered by expert oarsmen. Warnings - probably not for 6ft 6 line-backers or for the claustrophobic; after 10 am it appears to get quite busy (there's a Disney style zig-zag queuing system to... More

150k each 3 hour boat trip Very peaceful. Tuesday mid - day , not many tourists Only thing to be aware of is the steep price of parking (15k for a push bike)
