The Phu Long Cave is likened to a labyrinth within the Cat Ba archipelago. Upon arrival, visitors will encounter a narrow entrance with rugged rocks protruding, facing south to welcome the sea breeze. Passing through the entrance reveals a spacious interior, with low ceilings ranging from 1.5m to 2.1m high. Large, winding rock formations and deep pits form the cave’s vault.

The Phu Long Cave is divided into three sections. Beyond the narrow entrance lies the first cave, characterized by drooping stalactites and rugged terrain. The main entrance arch is gracefully curved, with stalactites resembling clusters of milk flowers dripping water.

The Second Cave boasts lofty and wide spaces, with the cave’s water reflecting a silver sheen as sunlight streams in, resembling a starry sky. Above, there are golden mountains, and silver streams cascading down. Beyond the second cave, visitors reach the entrance to the third cave, flanked by sculptures of mythical beasts and divine elephants. Visitors must climb atop the back of a large turtle made of white stalactites to enter the third cave. The third cave, is divided into two areas: the celestial palace on the left and the Buddhist temple on the right. The celestial palace is adorned with gold nets, dragon thrones, deity statues, sleeping fairies with flowing hair, and divine beings perched atop stalactite columns. All of these are creations of stalactites and imagination that visitors have brought to life within these cavernous formations.
