The first destination when visiting Bai Tu Long National Park should be Cai De, the immensely pristine cave full of surprises, particularly the shimmering million-year-old stalactites of different shapes and thousands of bats hiding on stalactites.

Cai De cave together with Tai Valley are attractive magnets for those who love adventure tourism in Bai Tu Long National Park.

Ba Mun Island is the next attractive spot that lures tourists thanks to the quite large population of golden deer – the only one in the Northeast of Vietnam. Furthermore, there are a variety of other animals such as deers, monkeys, langurs, sea birds, etc. Ba Mun is now the largest natural wildlife conservation area in the Northeast region.

Cai Lim valley is worth the last spot to discover in Bai Tu Long National Park as it is highly evaluated by senior experts from the ASEAN Center for Biodiversity thanks to the unique values in terms of ecology, science, education, and training. This is considered the precious gift bestowed by nature, serving conservation, scientific research, and eco-tourism development in the near future as well.

Lonely Planet once wrote “In some ways, the park is actually more stunning, since it’s only in its early stages as a destination for travelers. The bay and its islands are still unpolluted and relatively undeveloped.”
