  • Small island open in halong Bay! The island is smallish and with a small beach where you can swim and rent beach chairs and umbrellas. There is also a small bar. But what really worth doing are the 400 steps to the top of the island where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Bay! There are many steps a little tiring indeed are dual carriageways and you have to be careful with other tourists who climb or descend! But for those who didn't want or was in trouble the good news is that you can stop about half way up, enjoying a beautiful view there!

  • We visited the island as part of an overnight cruise. While the cruise was outstanding the visit to Ti Top Island was a mistake. Overcrowded, packed dirty beach with a climb to the top in compressed, ...  more »
  • Last May with friends, even a non-cruise Halong was found again with my parents on Christmas holidays, Halong Bay cruise will also find the island. Climb to the lookout for Halong Bay, the view is quite nice on the beach, enjoy a swim.

  • It's about 450 steps to the pavilion at the top, on a narrow path, which means you'll be squeezing past people on the way up and down. The view is worth it, so bring your camera. An hour - or slightly less - should be sufficient for this island.
  • Phew the walk up was hard and hot but well worth it, the view was really amazing to see. The beach was nice, the sand was clean and water was nice, there were a few jellyfish that I saw so we tried to stay in a shallower area as a few people had been stung.
  • Should be Ti Top island. Beautiful but crowded. The hike up to the top is well worth the view
  • Worth to hike up to the top of Island, beautiful views of Halong landscape. It takes you 20-30 mins up and down to the observatory deck with more than 400 stairs ;) You would enjoy the swim in the bay afterward.
  • Too crowded even at low season in February.
