Halong cruise Info

ē How to choose the best Halong Bay cruises for your vacation?

Halong Bay is known as a Wonder of the World as well as World Heritage Site. As a popular destination for worldwide travellers, Ha long Bay is a visual poem of vibrant color, from the emerald green waters on which glide brilliant blue fishing boats, to the deep orange sunsets that morph into an enigmatic purple. Towering and jungle-topped, the karst formations jut dramatically from the ocean - a playground for mischievous monkeys and nesting ground for soaring birds of prey. Halong Bay is affordable and give you some ways to travel more enjoyable, cheaper, longer.

Here is some tips How to choose the best Halong Bay cruises for your vacation?

Book a cruise or travel on your own

A lot of travelers think that traveling on your own is always cheaper than booking a cruise. However, itís true for Halong Bay. If you travel on your own, you will take a bus from Hanoi to Halong Bay, you have to take a taxi to Gia Lam bus station or My Dinh bus station. I know it wonít be easy for tourist to take a local bus. Thereís a lot of persons who is in the tourist wharf who offer plenty of choices for cruise. To be honest, you wonder who is a good one and who will tell you the truth. You donít know that you go on the right cruise which you pay for. The cruise may be a different one with lower quality such as boat, foodÖ. Itís your choice. I recommend to book a cruise with a reliable travel agent or the hotel where you stay in Hanoi. If anything happens, you are able to deal with them.


Please read more posts on reviews, other travel blogs and comments or ask your friends who has been there or other tourists who stay in the same hotel with you. It is so important to see what a company reputation is before booking with them. The cheap cruises may not be a good ones. The small one but with a good reputation can be your choice. Letís choose ones suitable your budget.


Here are some tips to help you find out the best one, but affordable one on your budget. From US$70 to US$150/ per person for 2 days 1 night, you can get good ones such as Glory Cruise, Image Halong Cruises, Bai Tu Long Junk, Phoenix Cruiser, Bai Tho Junks, Huong Hai Junk, Aclass Cruises, Oriental Sails, V'Spirit Classic Cruises, Elizabeth Sails, Golden Lotus Cruises, Marguerite Junks, Legacy Cruise. In addition, please check whatís included in the tour price. For some travel agents, as you check on their website, the price is lower but round-trip transportation may not be included. You may pay extra for a total bill.

If you prefer premium cruises, I can recommend La Vela Classic Cruise, Pelican Luxury Cruise, Paloma Cruise, Victory Cruise, Dragon Pearl Cruise, Calypso Cruiser, White Dolphin Cruises, Syrena Cruises, Hanoi Opera Cruise, Aphrodite Cruises. The rate is range from US$160 to US $250

If you are looking for a luxury cruise, my recommendation is Paradise Luxury Cruises, Victory Star Cruises, Valentine Cruise, Au Co Cruises, Huong Hai Sealife Cruise, Starlight Cruise, Dragon Legend Cruise, Violet Cruise, Ginger Cruise, Jasmine Cruise, Golden Cruise, Indochina Sails, Bhaya Classic Cruise, Paradise Peak Cruise, Emeraude Classic Cruises. The rate is different from each other. The most expensive ones are Au Co, Paradise and Violet Cruise.

If you are traveling during the summer from May to September, thereís a big deal for most cruises from 20% to 70% discount. All cruises mentioned aboved offer joining group tour. It means that you will share the boat with others.

Facilities and Services:

Most of cruises have same facilities and services. It is just different for 4 stars and 5 stars cruise which offer other additional facilities such as safety deposit box, book shelves and services snorkeling and fishing equipment, jacuzzi and spa and kayaking. The services are mentioned to be exclusives.

Safety first:

Please check the boat's age. I know itís hard, but donít take the old one. The newer boats are more safe. You should also check all facilities on board via their websites for safety and security such as life vests, alarm clock, hammer and safety deposit box.

Food & Dining

The restaurant and bar are places of discovery and sharing with others. They combine tradition and freshness of rich oriental cuisine with the latest culinary trends from around the world. Their menus are the result of a creative European and Vietnamese fusion that crosses traditional gastronomy boundaries.

In an atmosphere of elegant luxury, you can enjoy sumptuous buffets and tasty menus served by a crew in traditional Vietnamese costumes Ė fine dining harmoniously combined with the aromas of the sea. A wide selection of the best vintages from around the world will complement fine fusion cuisine and creative Asian-inspired flavours.


Where to cruise:
My first recommendation is Bai Tu Long Bay where you can cruise away from the crowd. You can get the most enjoyable moment and travel in your style.

Most of the activities is almost the same: kayaking, caving, swimming, cooking class, squid fishing, karaoke on boardÖ. but some of them offer extra special activities such as dinning in the cave, fishing with locals, collecting rubbish and wastes on the bay.

Duration of your stay:
Depending on your schedule, you will decide how long to stay. If you take a day trip. You will spend 4 hours cruising on Halong Bay, joining these activities such as: kayaking or visiting a fishing village on a sampan rowed by locals and visiting Thien Cung (Hevenly Palace cave). Itís good for visitors who only have a short time. Most of the cruises offer the same itinerary, just choose a good tour company one as Indochina Travel Legend. 2 days with 1 night overnight on a sleeping boat, 3 days 2 nights with 2 nights sleeping on boat. On the 2nd day, you will take a day boat and spend your day for kayaking in the area of Dark and Light cave, visiting Soi Sim beach island. Some cruises offer a longer cruising to Ba Trai Dao beach and barbecue lunch on the beach but it depends on the tidal and weather condition.

Type of cruise:

Private charter cruise: If you join a private one, you can custom itinerary, do your own activities and give instruction to the crews. There is also a plenty of choices such as 1 cabin, 2 cabins to 6 cabins. If you want something private, it will be a good choice for you. You may pay a bit extra than joining a group tour, but you have your own boat. Itís good for couples, family, the old.
