Poem Mountain, where you can get the whole view of Halong Bay and Halong City without needing to book an exorbitant helicopter ride. From a far, the 106-meter-limestone mountain looks like a huge castle with three imposing towers. Its past name Truyen Dang means Light Projecting. This mountain has inspired many poets.
Bai Tho Mountain lies right in the city center, but the entrance to the staircase that leads to the mountain top is hidden in a small corner with no sign whatsoever. This entrance is situated on Hang Noi St. (Đường Hàng Nồi) , and the best way to find it is to go to this street and ask local people.
Climbing this mountain is not easy, but not too hard. After around 30 minutes you'll be able to reach the top, where the awe-inspiring view of Halong Bay and Halong city will amaze you. There is not trash bin on the way leading to the mountain top, so please bring back your trash after climbing.
