‘Cave of Awe’ in Halong Bay

‘Cave of Awe’ in Halong Bay

While sailing around Halong Bay we stopped off at a huge cave system in the limestone peaks. It is called the ‘Cave of Awe’ due to the expressions on visitors faces when they first enter the cave. It went on for miles and miles and was like a magical grotto from kid’s films. It was illuminated with all different coloured lights and there was a massive bat cave with thousands of tiny bats.

I was travelling with a basic point and shoot camera at the time so the photos don’t do it justice but here are some of the best:
