Last night's story upon arrival at Royal Hotel was just dinner and sleeping. The story for next morning started with the "eat all you want" buffet breakfast and off to the harbour. Freezing and shivering waiting in line among the many who not only arrived simultaneously, but slyly trying to cut the queue, thankfully, the 25 of us hopped into one boat. Spacious to move around, the boat was quite well maintained and comfortably, soon it slowly sailed while we admired and were practically glued to the stunning tranquil view at this world heritage site prior to stepping foot at Dau Go Cave.
Helped out from the boat, we carefully walked on the muddy and slippery path to enter the cave. Dau Go Cave, also known as Cave Of Wonders and is the biggest and the most beautiful grotto on Halong Bay. Featuring magnificent rock formation, the various shapes and sizes stalactites and stalagmites are illuminated by a kaleidoscope of colours. The colourful lights no doubt brightened the cave but sort of so artificial as a put off to nature. About an hour in the cave, we then exited and got into the boat.
Up next: Lunch while cruising back to the harbor.
