The Ha Long Bay Cruise must have been one of my favorite parts of our Hanoi trip. As part of the tour, we stopped over at Thien Cung Cave (translated as “The Cave of Heavenly Palace”).
The bridge to Thien Cung.
The cave stopover is a default part of the usual Ha Long Bay tours.
The stalactites and stalagmites in the cave are very pretty, but the place has become too tourist-y in my opinion. The lights in the cave were of different colors, it almost felt like a disco house.
Here are some more photos of the cave. I believe I could have appreciated this more if the lights used were a more natural yellow.
Oh my, who is this native?
Right outside of the cave is a majestic view of Ha Long.
One cannot question such beauty.
