Top things to do when cruising Halong Bay

Some ever said “Your holidays to Vietnam wouldn’t be complete without a boat tour cruising the spectacular limestone rocks of Halong Bay”. As being an iconic image of Vietnam tourism, Halong Bay always remains the most visited destination in Vietnam. Although a peaceful and relaxing cruise is good enough to experience and enjoy the stunning views of this UNESCO Heritage Site, Halong Bay has so much more to offer than scenes and sights. Have you been there and taken an overnight cruise? Here are the top things that can keep you busy when visiting Halong Bay during your customized Vietnam tour:

Discover caves and grottos

There are many caves and grottos of all shapes and sizes hidden among the jungle-covered limestone mountains of Halong Bay. The most famous and picturesque caves are Thien Cung (or Heavenly Palace) and Dau Go Caves, which are easily reached from the main harbor in Tuan Chau Island. For tourists take part in the day trip to Halong Bay, it can be very convenient to explore that two caves. Another cave that is also well known and worth visiting is Sung Sot Cave on Bo Hon Island. After climbing over 100 stairs and going through a narrow passage, you will be surprised by the enormous space of the cave, around 10,000 square meters.

Practice Tai-Chi on sundeck

What an amazing way to start your day by engaging in a Tai-Chi session in the early morning guided by an experienced master to learn how to control your mind and body, watching the sun rise and feeling the tranquility of the bay. This is an activity that we strongly recommend to participate while you are traveling to Halong Bay. The Tai Chi session is held between 6-7 A.M on sundeck (or the dining hall if the weather is bad).

Vietnam Customized Tours in Halong

Explore Bai Tu Long Bay and Lan Ha Bay

For travelers who wish to go on a 3-day-2-night cruise trip during the tours in Vietnam, spend the second day on board to explore either Bai Tu Long Bay in the northwest or Lan Ha Bay in the southwest of Halong Bay will be a fascinating experience. Different to the well-known areas of Halong Bay, these locations are less-visited and truly the hidden corners of the bay. Get on the kayak for an off-boat excursion to explore the unspoiled islands, isolated lagoons and pristine beaches is a real adventure.

Cycling on Cat Ba Island

This is another activity for the 3-day-2-night itinerary. Cat Ba Island is the largest island in Halong Bay, so well-known the great diversity of natural habitats as well as impressive natural beauty. Cycling through the core of Cat Ba National Park to visit Viet Hai village, travelers will have plenty of opportunities to admire the sublime scenery, enjoy fresh and green forest and interacting with local villagers.

View Halong Bay from seaplane

In recent years, instead of spending few hours on road driving from Hanoi to Halong Bay, travelers can choose to fly seaplane. The flying journey is around 45 minutes plus a short tour to admire the spectacular scenery of Halong Bay from above. Though the cost for flying seaplane can be quite high especially when you are on a budget Vietnam tour, the experience is thrilling and truly amazing. You are rewarded the bird-eye view of Halong Bay entirely, rather than the normal view at sea level.
