Thien Canh Son Cave - Bai Tu Long Bay
Thien Canh Son Cave is located on Cong Do Island and one of the most beautiful hidden caves in Bai Tu Long Bay. Approx. 2,000 sqm in size, it is much smaller when compared to the other well-known caves, however, what it lacks in scale is more than made up for by the spectacular interior

Hidden in Cong Do Nature Reserve, which encompasses about 1,600 islands and islets of various sizes, the entrance to Thien Canh Son Cave is camouflaged by the undergrowth of the forest canopy, and there is a short climb up 60-70 rock stairs through the thick foliage to reach it.
Inside the cave are three caverns, each spectacularly filled with stalactites and stalagmites forming unique structures that locals believe resemble flowers and animals, that create a dreamlike fantasy world.
The ceiling is covered in glistening stalactites hanging like chandeliers and the natural light streaming into the cave combined with the multi-colored artificial lighting creates a dramatic and surreal heavenly effect by which the cave is named
