History


Description

Dong Thien Cung is one of the caves in Ha Long Bay which is closest to the city Halong, only four kilometers from the pier. The cave is a rather young discovery, and so it is more pristine than other, long-known caves. The last chamber of the cave has a small cave river which never dries. This is the place were according to legend Mây bathed her 100 children, bringing them up wisely and happily until adolescence. Then she left the cave with 50 of her children, to harvest new lands, while the 50 remaining children stayed with their father to build the native land.
