Kayaking in Halong Bay
Trong and Trinh Nu caves
Located on two wings of a small mountain arc east of the Bo Hon island chain, they are more than 3km from Sung Sot cave by sea to the southeast. The two caves are 700-800m apart, through a small beach. The gates of these caves face different directions.
The two caves not only have a lot of stalactites and beautiful scenery but also attract tourists for a very moving love story. In one cave, there is a horizontal rock that looks like a girl lying reaching out to the sea, so it is called the Trinh Nu (Virgin) cave. The other one has a considerable stalactite that looks like a giant man standing to look out to the sea.
