At around 8:30 A.M, you will head to Cua Van - a small village located under Ngoc Mountain, by the day boat. This place will suit perfectly those who prefer quietness and nature. 

Following that, you will visit the well-known Maze Cave amid Halong Bay. The cave ages around 7,000 to 10,000 years old with a complex structure of a 100m corridor and many compartments. Needless to say, the Maze Cave will leave an unforgettable impression in your mind once you visit it. Specifically, the combination of sparkling stalactites varies in shape; the blue water of the lake and the dim light from the outside make the inside of the cave becomes more alluring and mysterious.
