There are several caves around the Ha Long Bay area, and a visit to the Thien Cung Caves was included in our boat trip. I was told that you can not decide yourself what cave you want to visit: People on day trips visits one cave and people on overnight cruises visits another cave – and it changes during the season...

The caves of Thien Cung are located 4 km from Ha Long City. The way to the caves is a bit demanding, going up a small path covered on both sides by thick forest. The caves are 130 meter long and you are guided though the caves by following a snake-like trail. Inside the caves there are many beautiful stalactites and stalagmites, but I also found the colourful lighting very nice. The name means “Heavens Palace” and it is said that the Thien Cung Caves are the most beautiful caves of Ha Long Bay.
