This area of Halong Bay is more stunning than others
This area of Halong Bay is more stunning than others, there is an opening in the island ahead...

 

Luon Cave
After a few minutes, the tender stops near Luon Cave, a kind of lagoon with only one entrance to the inside. It looks almost under water at high tide.

Getting closer, the entrance still looks that we can't travel through...

Once you are into the entrances, it looks much better, as there is more space to fit in sampans.

Coming out of the cave, the tender drops all passengers onto Ti Tov Island where we hike to the top for the panoramic view of Halong Bay. The bay looks just magical from this observation tower.
