Van Long also has 32 beautiful caves such as Ca, Bong, Rua, Chanh... Each cave has its original beauty. Van Long is not only a submerged nature reserve but also a site of historical heritage. It is a mecca for eco-tourism but also a place to study ideal for researchers, students and Vietnamese and foreign students
Van Long was opened for tourists in 1998 and is now a major tourist destination of the country.
The beauty of Van Long Lagoon has attracted both Vietnamese and international tourists, scientists, photographers and businesspeople. Traveling by boat on the lagoon, tourists can see Delacour's langurs drinking water at the mountain foot or exposing themselves to the sun on the mountain top.
