There are numerous extraodinary islands, caves and beaches that the trip in Ha Long, Quang Ninh cannot be complete without visiting:
Giau Go cave
(Familiar with the name Hidden Wood cave, which means Giau Go in Vietnamese): This cave was named after a real historical event of Vietnam. During the resistance against Mong Nguyen enemy, the king and people under Tran dynasty had hidden wooden stakes in Giau Go cave before bringing them down to the Bach Dang River to build the battlefield aiming at destroying enemy’s ships when the tide was up.
Thien Cung Cave

The island is a primeval forest with various kinds of plants, many of which are endemic, valuable and bear the characteristic of Ha Long Bay ecosystem. According to the local, due to a variety of myrtles growing on this island so it was called Soi Sim.
Ti Top island
From above, Ti Top island is shaped like a full moon embracing the sea. Unlike many other tourist destinations on Ha Long Bay, Ti Top island also owns a beautiful beach in addition to such beautiful natural scenery, called Ti Top beach. Although the beach area is not large much but quiet, airy and very clean. Due to the continuous rise and fall of the tide, the sand becomes white and clean.
The name of this island was named after an astronaut of the Soviet Union Ti Top by Uncle Ho-the great father and the leader of Vietnam.
Cave of Surprise
As the name was given by the French “Grotte des surprises” (surprising cave), visitors cannot stand their surprise for the first time stepping in this cave.
