Situated in the centre of the UNESCO-declared World Heritage area, the Sung Sôt or Surprise Grotto is on Bo Hòn Island, and is one of the finest and widest grottoes of Ha Long Bay.Ascending to the grotto, the way is covered by trees and foliage, and consists of great paved stone blocks.Inside, it is partitioned into two chambers; the first one being similar to a wide theatre hall. Many stalactites hang from the high ceiling, with numerous possible forms and shapes.

Went as part of an overnight cruise. Entry tickets were paid for as part of our trip. Walked up quite a few steps in the heat but it was worth it. The first bit was quite small and I thought is this all it is....More

We learn a lot when visiting this cave. Everything was amazing. We enjoy it so much and would do it again soon.

The cave is small and there are lights inside so you can see around, but I was not impressed. There was not much to see inside

Natural and nice cave, everything is well organized. Interesting legends about this area, good quizzes for guests to give answers

There are some stairs to get there where it is a bit slippery. Inside the cave is very cool, has the feeling that you are in outer space.

A junk boat was booked from HALONG SAPA EXPERTS website agent was fantastic. We visited Sung Sot cave and the cave was huge and it was crowded everyday but still worth for a visit.

They have ruined this cave with colored spotlights and garrish decorations. It is a shame as it is a large natural cave.

Sorry, my computer crashed so I couldn't answer earlier. But I'm a traveler not a travel agent, therefore I would not have been able to help anyway. I hope you enjoyed!
