One of the main sites in the network of caves surrounding Ha Long Bay, Dong Thien Cung sits shrouded in local myths of dragons and lovers. During this first stop on many of the bay’s cave tours, you'll encounter a complex, naturally formed interior of stalactites, stalagmites, and cathedral-like dome ceilings spread over roughly 10,000 sq m (10,7639 sq ft). Said to have hosted the seven-day wedding festivities of the dragon king and cloud princess, many of the eerily lit rock formations are attributed to guests of the mythical party turning into stone. Ask your guide to point out the numerous characters while carefully walking to the center of the cave.

Therefore, it is a dry cave without falling from the top which tends to be in the cave, and the ground is wet. Also, it's not cooler than outside. The inside of the cave was a dome-like, and the ceiling was high and wide. In the photos I saw in the guidebook, they were made with red and green lights, but they were actually normal lights. I think this is better.
Tijdens onze dagtocht door Halong Bay hebben we deze mooiste grot van Vietnam, de hemelse grot, bezocht. Deze is bijzonder mooi en er zijn ook veel mythes over te vertellen.

This one is particularly beautiful and there are also many myths to tell about it. A beautiful natural phenomenon with colourful lighting. As soon as our boat had been laid in the bay we walked comfortably through a walkway to the entrance. The cave itself is well furnished and well passable if you are reasonably on your feet.
