  • Ha Long Bay

    You know those visions of coastal Asia that hover in your subconscious, where traditional junks sail past craggy, forest covered shoreline as an apricot sunset blazes into the misty horizon? You may think they exist because you watched too many Bond films, but Halong Bay looks just like that.

    One of the world’s ‘natural wonders’, and an absolute must-see for any visitor to the north of Vietnam, the Bay (also spelt Ha Long) is defined by more than 1,000 awe-inspiring limestone karsts and islands of various sizes.

    Of course it’s slowly modernizing, but Halong Bay’s UNESCO status makes sure it stays well protected. The area plays host to a huge diversity of ecosystems, including offshore coral reefs, freshwater swamp forests, mangrove forests, small fresh water lakes, and sandy beaches.

    Folklore says that dragons descended from the heavens to help locals by spitting jewels and jade into the sea, forming a natural fortress against invaders – the islands that you see today. Several of these boast beautiful grottos and huge caves that you can explore during your tour of the bay.

    Throughout much of the year (weather & season permitting!) overnight junk journeys give you the chance to sunbathe, swim and snorkel. You can be sure to stop at caves, deserted bays, remote islets and hidden lagoons. If you fancy taking things even easier, just stretch out on the sundeck, sip a cocktail and soak up the magic.

    Discover Halong Bay Caves
    Halong was honored twice with the title “World Natural Heritage Site” by the UNESCO as its value of geology, geomorphology. Therefore, visitors once coming to Halong Bay shouldn’t miss the chance to explore grotto system there (including Sung Sot Cave – Surprise Cave, Dau Go Cave – Wooden Stakes Cave, Thien Cung Cave, etc).

    Swimming & Kayaking
    Enjoy swimming and kayaking around Cong Dam, a picturesque area with hidden lagoons and sleepy fishing villages ensconced by towering karst cliffs, as well as the white-sand beach of Doi Non Island. Pass through thousands of islands and islets on the cruise to Tra San Beach for more sunbathing, swimming and kayaking.

    Halong Helicopter Tours
    Helicopter tour (also called air-taxi) is a new tourism service that has been provided since August 2008. Taking part in a helicopter tour, tourists can visit famous sightseeing of Halong Bay in just 45 minutes. Therefore, it’s no need to mind if you don’t have enough time for a trip to Halong Bay.

    Bai Tu Long Bay
    Sail to Bai Tu Long Bay, passing through extraordinarily shaped islands with other such evocative names as Poem Mountain, Teapot Islet and Goat’s Head Islet. Swim in the pristine water here before heading to the tranquility of Cong Do and the hidden wonder of Thay Cave.

    Vung Vieng Fishing Village
    Take a rowboat to visit the Vung Vieng fishing village, where you can interact with the local fishermen and see them at work.

    Scuba Diving
    For tourists who love discovery, scuba-diving will be a favorite activity on Halong Bay. By scuba-diving, tourists will have chance to see the wonderful underwater world of Halong by their all eyes. It must be an amazing experience when you can explore various kinds of fish as well as pristine coral reefs at the bottom of Halong Bay; and even touch them.

    Halong Bay Squid Fishing
    Squid fishing on Halong Bay at night is an interesting activity at which tourists can experience the feeling of being a fisherman. Tourists will have the instruction from local fishermen about how to fish a squid in the sea. The squids caught will be used to make dishes for tourists. This is also an ideal time to gaze Halong Bay by night.

    Squid Sausage
    Halong squid sausage is well-known not only in all three parts inside the country but also for international tourists. True to its name, the main ingredient is squid. However, it is said that no kind of squid can make the squid sausage as wonderful as Halong Bay’s squid. It must be fresh squid that is newly caught. The dish, hence, will get the sharp and appealing tang.

    Halong Fried Sea Snails with Chili Sauce
    Apart from lobsters, squids, Halong has a less expensive food but sharing the same appetizing taste: Sea Snail. Sea snails vary widely in breed and cooking process; and fried sea snails with chili sauce seems to be the most common.
