By Viator, February 2018

4.5 204 Reviews | Add your review

Thanks to its dramatic cliffs, glittering turquoise waters, and more than 1,600 limestone islands and islets, beautiful Halong Bay is one of the most popular sites to visit in northern Vietnam and is best seen on a cruise. Here are your options for Halong Bay cruises from Hanoi. 

Day Cruises
With limited time, it’s possible to see the UNESCO World Heritage Site on a day tour from Hanoi. Soak up the scenery as you drive through the scenic Quang Ninh province, cruise around Halong Bay, and see natural wonders such as Thien Cung cave, Driftwood Island, and Dau Go grotto. To maximize your time, most tours include hotel pickup, round-trip transport, and lunch, while small-group and private tours offer a more personalized experience.

Multi-Day Cruises 
For a more in-depth exploration of Halong Bay, opt for an overnight cruise or multi-day tour, and spend a night aboard a traditional junk boat or luxury cruise ship. A 2- or 3-day cruise means you can head further afield to attractions like Bat Tu Long cave, Thien Canh Son cave, and Cat Ba Island; enjoy outdoor activities such as kayaking or snorkeling around the bay; and take part in on-board activities such as tai chi or squid fishing. With time to spare, combine a Halong Bay cruise with a visit to Tam Dao National Park or a tour of Hanoi’s Old Quarter and Ho Chi Minh complex.

Things to Know
  • Halong Bay is located around 103 miles (165 kilometers) east of Hanoi.
  • Full-day tours from Hanoi typically last about 12 hours. 
  • Multi-day and overnight cruises typically include round-trip transfers to Hanoi, on-board accommodation and meals, and a range of activities.
  • Be sure to bring your swimsuit and sun protection—there are plenty of spots for swimming and snorkeling around the bay.
