“Would not do again”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

Dau Go Cave was beautiful but small as compared to other caves we have visited. Lighting was bright so you could see where you were going. We did not have a guide and were hurried/pushed along by the huge number of other tourists. There are many, many stairs. This is fine for young people but difficult for persons 60+ although we are in good physical condition. Most caves are cold but this one was damp and warm. We were astonished to see people were allowed to climb anywhere they pleased and touch everything which is a shame. When we got to the exit, it was difficult to see whether there were bathroom facilities or food available for purchase since we were being pushed by the crowd. We were just glad to get out into the fresh air.

“Glad I did it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

Even though there was a climb to the entrance, the steps were easy to navigate. Once inside the cave, it was like magic with beautiful colors and if you let your imagination go you could see all kinds of beautiful sculpture and design. A definite to do!

“Magnificent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

To find a cave so large and interesting on an island in Ha Long Bay was part of the pleasure in visiting it. You have to walk up a lot of steps to the entry and then expect to take a long path through the cave. The cave is lighted and the walkway obvious. You may need a sweater or jacket as it is a little cooler than ambient on many days.
