We had been navigating the bay for about thirty minutes when our boat docked at a large island.  We stopped there to view a very unique cave that had been discovered in the years following the Vietnam War.  Much of the cave was illuminated with a variety of colored lights, making it a very beautiful experience.  Our guide from Hanoi led us through the cave pointing out all of its unique features.  He said that he does the Halong tour at least once each week, making him very knowledgeable about the bay and the cave.

Lights in the cave
More lights, more cave
Still more lights, still more cave
