WHAT TO SEE IN HA LONG BAY
For many travellers, witnessing the beauty of Halong Bay from a cruise liner is everything they need, however, there are a range of activities available for tourists with itchy feet.
Explore the caves of Halong Bay
For those feeling adventurous, the endless limestone caves are dying to be explored. Kayaking beneath grand arches and circling the impressive limestone towers standing twenty metres above the water is an unforgettable experience. It is also possible to explore the caves on foot and in complete safety. Proper, established hiking routes have been established through the cave systems
Visit the floating villages of Halong Bay
Have you heard of the floating fishing villages of Halong Bay? The villages were originally built as a pitstop for fishermen returning from a night’s work to recuperate before heading out again to catch shrimp. The Halong Bay floating villages then evolved to become the official residence of the locals. We can include a visit of the floating villages in your tour.
Climb Bai Tho Mountain
Now, this isn’t as intimidating as it sounds. Bai Tho mountain may be the highest point in Halong Bay, but it certainly isn’t Everest. The climb to the summit will take about half an hour and offers sweeping views of the bay. We know how to get there and the best time of day to start your ascent.
