Poor mans Hau Long Bay. Overcharged for the Sanpan ride. No Life Jackets that would fit and all others broken. The water is polluted. The scenery is good but better value elsewhere. Not wot he the two hour each way from Hanoi.

Good way to unwind. Safe and reliable boats with life jackets provided. Makes for a nice break and great way to enjoy the limestone mountains. Take a hat and sit back and enjoy....

No, the boat tour takes at least 2hours so you can’t visit at 5p.m.I think boat is the only access to the sight.You can rent a Homestay by the river there if you want.
