The best way to explore Halong Bay is obviously by booking into a cruise. But before you go off on your adventure you should know a little bit more about Halong Bay and its importance.
1. Where is Halong Bay?
Located in Northwestern Vietnam, Halong Bay is an archipelago that is made up of 1969 islands and little islets which consist of karst limestone formations. Thanks to this, the bay is dotted in fascinating caverns, grottos, towers and caves that will blow your mind. Halong Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
2. Choose a Cruise Provider
When visiting you need to choose the right Halong Bay cruise option that will suit your requirements. There are plenty of options to choose from including Bhaya Cruises. The luxury cruises cater to a more personalised experience that is a far cry from all that is touristy.
3. Cruise Routes
Most of the cruise operators take the same routes so most of the time you will not be alone as you drift along the bay. But the further you go, the more chances of seclusion will come your way, so always opt for the longer cruises.
4. Lots of Activities
Apart from enjoying the sheer natural beauty of Halong Bay, you can also take part in many activities including visiting floating villages, kayaking, tai chi lessons, squid fishing and cavern hunting.
