Part of what makes Halong Bay's ecosystem so unique are the numerous caves and grottoes scattered throughout the area. Now considered to be Vietnam's most valuable natural asset, the 59 discovered caves significantly contribute to the natural biosphere here. Most cruises will include at least one cave on their tour route, where you'll have the chance to jump off the cruise ship and explore the cavern yourself. If there is a guide onboard your ship, this is the time to take advantage of their knowledge! The Halong Bay caves are rich in folklore and learning these stories provide a wonderful insight into the traditions and culture of the area.
