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.

It's a pretty nice cave with some interesting stalactite relate to a legend about one of "Four Immortals" in Vietnam's history. Note: This place located in Ha Long Bay Area, which belong to Quang Ninh Province, not Hai Phong city!!!

The walks of these caves are some of the best in the world especially as you exit the caves The view of the bay below is breathtaking there are dozens of boats and huge rocks sticking out of the water like a serpent crawling along the sea

Take your time to think about how special this place is.. you will feel puny! A cave complex that will dazzle you, just imagine you're the first to discover this cave. The coloured lights sometimes make it look like a carnival but it does add a certain sphere..
