Visit a landing cave named Thien Cung (Heaven Palace), one of the biggest caves in the bay. The cave was founded by a local fisherman and renovated with walking paths and light for tourist but still quite many steps up and down so make sure that you are willing for this challenge.
After the cave, you get back to your boat for having lunch with fresh seafood (for those who can’t eat seafood will be replaced by other food but please inform your guide before departure).
While having lunch, make sure your camera is on the table with full battery because there are thousands of spectacular islands that you don’t want to be missed such as Incense Burner island, Finger island, Duck island, Turtle island, and especially the Fighting Cocks island that chosen to be the symbol of Halong Bay.
