Dau Go Cave, Ha Long Bay Reviews

  • Ideal for travellers who doesn't want to stress themselves too much. The has concrete steps which makes it easy for everyone to go up and down.

  • The Dau Go cave experience, if you're interested in rock formations or in things different than the ordinary, is great if you happen to be in Vietnam. The story of its discovery and the folklore surrounding the rock formations are interesting to a certain degree, especially if you're into mythical stuff. However, the tour inside the cave gets a bit boring once you notice that the guide is always pointing at some rock formation saying that it's an animal, a person, "Romeo and Juliet", among other things. And they're so many that you kinda feel like the guide, or the whole touring institution for that matter, may just be fabricating stuff for the sake of adding more interest to the seemingly innocent rocks. And by the way, the cave as you may notice if you observe carefully, is not 100% nature-made. Some man-made elements have already been introduced, which adds to the skepticism about some of the rock formations being natural. It even makes you think how much percent of the whole cave is unadulterated. So go ahead and listen to the guide, but take their words with a grain of salt. If you get bored at listening, you can always take pictures but don't expect the place to be 100% natural.

  • There are two caves at this very busy port. We decided to go to the Dau Go Cave, (Hang Đầu Gỗ), instead of the much busier Thien Cung Cave, (Động Thiên Cung). I wish we had time to go in both to compare but the Dau Go Cave was quite spectacular and was recommended by our guide. We were the only ones in this cave and it may have been because of the long, steep, climb up stairs to the entrance that it was being shunned by the throngs. If you are in good enough shape to climb the stairs and the boat port is very busy I would highly recommend choosing this cave. Yes, it has been artificially lighted and wooden stairs and rails built in it so the masses can walk through. Purists would say that ruins it, but still, it boggles the mind at how long it must've taken for water to carve out this incredible cave and also to build the massive stalactites, stalagmites, and flow stones present here. If you think about all that it is hard to be disappointed. (See my photos to get an idea of how spectacular this massive cave is.)

  • Great caves to be able to walk around and explore, it is a large area of different chambers, there is lots of light to be able to see and also lots of formations

  • Worth going for the right price under 20€
