  • 1. Travel Tip to Halong Bay, Vietnam Vietnam Paradise Travel is very happy to offer you many options to visit and stay in Halong bay. We are a tour operator who specializes in Halong bay junk tour, travel by boat, tour Halong bay, travel package, junk cruises in Halong bay, hotel booking in Vietnam. Halong Bay in Vietnam is a picturesque body of water that offers the perfect convergence of water, rock, and sky (when the season is right): an amazing view of over 3,000 undulating karst outcrops and islands that reminded last century’s Vietnamese of the backs of dragons emerging from the sea. Paddle through caves into secret lagoons, drift down channels surrounded by cliffs and forest and sail out into the open sea. Relax on the deck of our luxurious double-sailed junk and look forward to seafood bought straight from passing fishing craft. Swim alone amongst the limestone islets under the stars and take a breather at a floating village hidden amongst the islands. Our fiber glass sea kayaks make for satisfying travel, whether you are an Olympic champion or first time enthusiast.
  • 2. Th e bay is located about 100 miles from Hanoi, in the northern Vietnam province of Quang Ninh bordering China. If you get the timing and the weather right, the view you’ll get of Halong Bay from the deck of your tourist boat will be absolutely worth the three-hour drive it took to get there.Tourists can book anywhere from a four-hour joyride around the bay to a multiple-night cruise on one of a number of Halong Cruises. Halong Bay offers more than breathtaking ocean views. Visitors can explore the caves or grottoes lurking on the sides of the many islands dotting the bay, or spend a night at one of the hotels at the nearby Halong City or on the biggest island on Halong Bay, Cat Ba Island. The latter offers plenty of outdoor activities for the adventure-hungry traveler; read this article for more about trekking, kayaking, and rock climbing around Halong Bay: Three Fun Adventure Activities around Halong Bay, Vietnam. Topography of Ha Long Bay Halong Bay is characterized by almost 600 square miles of seascape dotted with over 3,000 limestone islands.

  • 3. between 160 to 300 feet high. Most of the islands on Halong Bay are uninhabited; in fact, many of them are inaccessible to human visitors, due to their sheer limestone cliffs. The waters of Halong Bay are not entirely devoid of residents. Local fishermen eke a living from the bay, residing on floating houses where they cultivate clams and fish for the local shrimp and crabs. Halong Cruises often make a stop at a floating house where visitors can see how the fishermen live (and hopefully buy some of the day’s catch).The larger islands feature caves and beaches that have become tourist attractions in their own right. The biggest island on Halong Bay, Cat Ba, features a diverse landscape and has become the unofficial adventure tourism capital of Vietnam.Tourists wishing to spend the night next to the Bay (but not on it) may check into a number of Halong Bay hotels in the vicinity. For accommodations on Cat Ba Island, read our list of Cat Ba hotels and resorts.Halong Bay is internationally recognized as a world-class tourist destination. Unesco granted it Heritage Site status in 1994, and the locale was also recognized in an online poll as one of the “New Seven Natural Wonders of the World” in 2011.Over 300 Cruises on Halong serve the tourists flocking to the Bai Chay Tourist Wharf. The majority of Halong Cruises serve the mercy of tour agencies in Hanoi, although walk-in tourists can also negotiate a ride from one of the touts hanging out dockside.
