The lights inside
Inside the caves you will find huge halls with many stalactites and stalacmites.
It was recently lighted with the help of the Chinese Government. There are lights of various colors in the main highlights.
The guide will show you different shapes made on the rocks by the water falling drop by drop.
There is a marvellous view of the bay from the exit gate.
The Cave in the middle of the slope
Also called as Hang Dau Go, and "Grotto of Wooden Stakes".
These are the main caves here, and your boat will surely stop here on the first afternoon. The cavesentrance is in the middle of the rock wall, you will disembark at a wooden pier and climb some (usually slippery) stairs up the wall till the entrance.
Once there, the visit lasts about 1 hour.
