Lan Ha Bay is located in the south of Ha Long Bay and east of Cat Ba Island, Lan Ha Bay has an area of over 7,000 hectares with the spectacular beauty of about 400 large and small islands.
Carrying in many interesting shapes, unlike Ha Long Bay, all the islands in Lan Ha Bay are covered with greenery, even if they are only extremely small islands.
The local residents of Halong Bay now still tell the old story about the origination of Ba Trai Dao Islet.
Story has it that the youngest daughter of the God fell in love with a poor fisherman.
As she wanted him to be immortal to be with her forever, she stole three peaches in the heaven for him. The God noticed and was very angry.
He turned three peaches into three stone mountains on the sea. Therefore, the locals named the islet as “Ba Trai Dao” Islet (Three Peaches Islet).

Chuong Islet is also known as But (Pen), Nen (Candle), Bap Chuoi (Banana flower spike). You can see it on the way from the town of Cat Ba to Cua Van fishing village.
The Dark Cave is the long and dark one, which will require a torch to be handed for visitors beforehand. In contrast, the Bright Cave is short, and you can see the other bright side from this side.
Exploring Dark and Bright cave, the best way is doing kayaking and swimming through the tunnel.
While the Bright Cave is always available, the Dark Cave can be swallowed by the tide and difficult to pass through.
Surely, you will surprise with amazing limestone islets and mountain in this area.
Controlling your kayak and explore each corner of Dark and Bright cave by your style.
There are Benjamin fig trees shade the landscape and many orchids hang their sweet-scented flowers. In the lake, many species abound: shrimp, fish, crab and cuttle-fish.
Inside the grotto, the lake is surrounded by mountains. On the cliff one still find traces of fossils of fresh-water snails, which prove that men used to live there and this must have been a deep valley then.
The beauty of the Dark and Bright cave is the mingling of a number of factors: the mountain’s size and form, the color of the water and the clouds.
