The village is also an ideal destination for kayaking or sampan ride.
Thien Canh Son Cave (called Dong Co by local) is a wild cave located on Bai Tu Long Bay, in the center of Cong Do island. It attracts so many tourists both domestic and overseas by a rare natural beauty, pristine limestone stalactites and beautiful surround landscape. To visit this cave, visitors would walk up about 100 stone steps, placed under the foliages and craggy cliffs which brings in a new feeling like climbing on the heaven gate’s side.
