So, you’re thinking about traveling to Halong Bay? Why would you want to go and do a thing like that? I mean, sure, it’s considered one of the natural wonder’s of the world, it’s a UNESCO world heritage site, and it’s filled with stunning limestone karsts, pristine ocean views, unique cultures, and an incredible range of things to see and do. But why would anyone want to go to Halong Bay?
You might want to go to Halong Bay because it’s stunningly beautiful. With over 2000 islands jutting out of the emerald waters of the sea in an other-worldly display of incredible creation, it is a truly unparalleled experience. It was listed as one of the Natural Wonder’s of the World in 2012, but has been in the making for thousands of years.
Maybe you want to go to Halong Bay for the cruises aboard traditional ‘junks.’ (Hang on, don’t let the name throw you– these boats are anything but junk!). There are boats for every budget, from backpacker junks to luxury junks, these cruise ships will take you drifting out onto the sea to explore Halong Bay up close. You’ve got options depending on your schedule, whether you want to go for just a day, 2 days and a night, or the big trip of 3 days and 2 nights. The shorter the trip, the less you’ll be able to see and do in Halong Bay. You really should go for at least 2 days if you can (it’s the most popular option), but if you’ve just got a day, then go and make the most of it! It’s always worth the trip, no matter how long you’ve got to spend. For the 3 day trip expect to get out into the more untouched areas of the bay for the most authentic experience.
Or I suppose you might want to go to Halong Bay because of all the fun and exciting things to do. Taichi on the deck in the early morning mist, kayaking through coves and caves with ocean life teeming around you, rock-climbing the craggy karsts, pampering spa treatments to completely relax, or simply watching the sun rise and set as you cruise through the bay. There is such a wide range of activities for you to do in Halong Bay, no matter what your reasons for traveling may be. Whether you’re an adventurer, a family with kids, a honeymooner, or someone looking for peace and tranquility– there’s no running out of options in Halong Bay.
