Halong Bay has quite a few caves and grottoes, some of which are only accessible with charter boat. The tour guides love to draw attention to the penis-shaped rock outcrop in Hang Sung Sot. The lighting has been deliberately chosen to highlight the theme. The cave seems to be standing up well to the pressure of tourism and will delight visitors for many years to come. Additional buildings and facilities are being constructed close to the shore. It is quite entertaining to see how the houseboats hussle for position. Nevertheless it all seems to work well.

This penis rock outcrop has been deliberately lit with pink light. The paths through the cave are well paved and easy to travel. Cathedral-like walls and vaults. Light and shade in Hang Sung Sot cave. The sound of falling water is very soothing. Graffiti from early cave explorers circa 1904. The person at the far bottom left provides a clue to the size of these walls. Study in black, brown and grey. A beautiful photo for your desktop. Intelligent lighting brings these walls to life. A complex chamber. The stream within the cave reflects the outside light. View of Halong Bay from within the cave. Dredging the bay to all additional access to the cave. View of Halong Bay from the cave. Houseboats come and go all day to Hang Sung Sot cave.
