Covering an area of nearly 1,000 m2, the cave is spectacular for its sheer size. It is separated into two chambers by a tall rustic stone pillar. The cave door, after thousand years of direct contact with sea water, has been covered with a layer of emerald green moss, giving it a primitive charm. The system of stalactites inside Tien Ong Cave is nothing short of stunning compared to those inside the finest caves in Ha Long Bay, such as Sung Sot Grotto or Thien Cung Cave.

The grotto can be likened to a hauntingly beautiful museum built by Planet Earth.
