6 tips to know for a good Halong Bay trip

Coming to Halong Bay, you should probably refer to these tips, in order to have a wonderful cruise trip in Halong Bay. Knowing this information might be crucial, because it gives you instructions on how to spend your time, or where to go in Halong Bay right now.

1. Spend at least two nights on the Bay

If you only spend a day to tour Ha Long Bay you just feel the surface of this beautiful land. With only a day, you can just glance through some caves and back out immediately. But if you spend more time exploring here, you will have a really enjoyable experience. Once you have traveled a long way, your trip will be more valuable if you spend two nights on the Bay.

2. Visit Cat Ba island

Another reason you should spend at least two nights here: you can visit Cat Ba island. Marry especially enjoyed the time on this beautiful island. We had a free afternoon wandering the fortress, the most popular part of the trip. The scenery is breathtaking! If you do not like walking, you can rent a motorcycle or spend the afternoon by the beach.

Cat Ba island is the best destination for your Halong Day Tour.

3. Know the safety information on the boat

Hope this is not a problem of the trip but I heard about the accident a few years ago that killed 12 people. Since then, I have firmly believed that all boats have an escape hammer placed next to their bed. Make sure you know where the lifejacket is located so that it can be picked up when needed. And with a little caution when taking a kayak, do not change your route on your own!

4. Climbing

If possible, conquer a mountain here. The view from the top of the mountain so majestic you can not imagine it! If you are in Cat Ba Island or Bai Tu Long Bay, do not miss the opportunity to climb the rocky mountains. I wish I had more time to conquer some more mountain peaks.

If you are in Halong Bay tours one night, consider climbing at least once or twice depends on your time.

5. Talk to the guides

Most guides in Halong Bay speak English quite well. Taking this opportunity, we talked with them about the lives of the Vietnamese people, from families, from education to daily life, and we know a lot more. Talking with the locals throughout the journey is also a good way to learn about a new culture.
