There are many caves in Halong Bay, but Tien Ong is the most recently explored and opened for public access. In 2007 a team of Vietnamese archaeologists conducted extensive research which led to the discovery of human bones and artifacts dating to 10,000 – 8,000 BC. The cave has a wide, but short entrance which is said to resemble the shape of a frog’s mouth. The cave is 5 meters above sea level and is 50 meters deep and covers 1000 square meters, almost evenly split into two chambers. We will tour the cave for about 15 minutes.

From the cave we will re-board the tender and make the short trip to the village. There are two options for exploring the village. One option is to transfer on small bamboo boats rowed by the local people. The second option is to travel by kayak (self-rowed). The kayaking option is $15 per person.
