Ha Long Bay Tours

106 reviews
Ha Long Bay
A UNESCO World Heritage Site located in the Gulf of Tonkin, Ha Long Bay is renowned for its spectacular scenery. One of the most popular tourist attractions in northern Vietnam, Ha Long Bay is known for its sparkling emerald waters, more than 1,600 towering limestone islands and islets, caves, and traditional floating villages.
 
The Basics
The most popular way to visit Ha Long Bay is on a combination guided tour and boat cruise. Those with limited time can visit on a day tour from Hanoi, which typically includes a few hours cruising Ha Long Bay, stops at a handful of islands and caves, swimming or kayaking, and a seafood lunch. For a more in-depth experience, opt for an overnight or multi-day cruise, spending at least one night aboard a traditional junk boat or a luxury ship, enjoying onboard activities like a cooking class or squid fishing. Not only will you be able to experience at least one magical sunset and sunrise, but you can head to attractions such as Cat Ba Island or Thien Canh Son cave.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Ha Long Bay is ideal for nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, and adventure travelers.
  • Don’t forget your camera; there are plenty of photo-worthy opportunities.
  • Bring swimwear and sun protection if you plan to enjoy the water.
  • Sturdy footwear is a must to hike and climb up to viewpoints.
  • Full-day tours from Hanoi usually last around 12 hours.
 
How to Get There
Located 103 miles (165 kilometers) east of Hanoi, Ha Long Bay is easiest to visit as part of a tour that includes transport. Otherwise, it’s accessible by car, bus, motorbike, and ferry. The fastest (and most expensive) way to get there is by helicopter or seaplane.
 
When to Get There
The best time to visit Ha Long Bay is from March to May and from September to November. Summers are the monsoon season and can see a lot of storms, which can impact a cruise. Winters can be cold, foggy, and drizzly, which can limit visibility.
 
Ha Long Bay Highlights
Ha Long Bay offers numerous attractions, including deserted islets, caves, and villages. Some of the more popular attractions include: Sung Sot Cave (also known as Surprise Cave) and Thien Cung Cave; the floating villages of Cua Van, Cong Dam, Ba Hang, and Vong Vieng; and Cat Ba National Park and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, home to plentiful wildlife, including the golden-headed langur (Vietnam’s most endangered primate).

Halong bay 1 Day group tour from Hanoi

Towering limestone pillars and tiny islets topped by forest rise from the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin. Halong translates as 'where the dragon descends into the sea' and legend tells that this mystical seascape was created when a great mountain dragon charged towards the coast, its flailing tail gouging out valleys and crevasses. As the creature plunged into the sea, the area filled with water leaving only the pinnacles visible. The geological explanation of karst erosion may be more prosaic, but doesn't make this seascape any less poetic.-bus ride back on the new high way (the time on the bus will shorter)-climb up Titov Peak for a panoramic view of the bay like paradise-5 hour journey via 2 day-sleeper boat cruise route
