Day Trip From Hanoi To Halong Bay Part 2: Dau Go Cave

Halong Bay Hanoi Trips Vietnam

After taking a little boat to ride around some of the islands in Halong Bay, we went back to the bigger boat which brought us to the Dau Go Cave – one of the most beautiful caves I have seen.

While walking up the stairs to the entrance of the cave you pass by the beautiful view point below:

The Dau Go Cave just looks absolutely stunning! There are various colours of light used to emphasise the different levels of depth in the cave and the vast amount of stone formations. While walking through the Dau Go Cave I felt like I was walking in the beautiful wood of Pandora – you remember the movie? :)

One thing would have made this experience even better: Get rid of the tourists and put a little group of cave enthusiasts in there that are eager to explore more of the hidden areas in the cave :) But to be fair, there were not as many tourists as you’d expect in a beautiful place like this. I guess the trip operators did a good job here and managed to prevent overcrowding.

Around late afternoon we headed back to the harbour in Halong City where the bus was waiting to bring us back to Hanoi. After a little dinner break on the 3 hour ride back, we arrived in Hanoi at 9pm – just in time to check out Hanoi’s night market. A great stop to see lots of things that no one needs but there is some nice street food :)

    Wow! Those are really beautiful and so creepy at the same time. It looks like the walls are melting. Do they have lights in there or is that all natural light?

      It’s coloured light. That’s why it looks so pretty. Yes, some walls look like might be melting indeed :)

    These caves are amazing! I would be so scared to go in there and a stalactite fall on me or something haha.

    I’ve been here! I love the pics you took. It looks exactly how the cave actually looks! I feel like everyone needs to see Halong Bay sometime in their life. I slept on a boat in Halong Bay and boy was that an interesting experience…
