Whole new experience with Halong Bay seaplane tours
The same objects and same scenes, but from a different point of view can make an extraordinary experience. Halong Bay does this perfectly. If you have been to Halong Bay before, or you have gone through lots of photos and videos about this blessed place, you would want to forget all of that after seeing these stunning pictures of Halong Bay from above. The view from a seaplane.
Halong Bay seaplane tours have been established since 2014 and nowadays, more and more people put it on their to-do-list when they travel to Halong Bay.
Overview of seaplane tours
The first reason seaplane tours stand out from other types of transportation is saving time. Normally, it takes you about 3 to 4 hours traveling by car, shuttle bus, or private bus from Hanoi to Bai Chay wharf in Halong Bay. From here you would be transferred to a cruise. With just a 40-minute flight, and tons of stunning views from high altitude, approximately 150 meters above water, the tours totally blow your mind.
Seaplane tours are one of the best ways to capture the whole Halong Bay archipelago scenery view. According to Claire Boobbyer, who made a film about Halong Bay for telegraph.co.uk, “From the air, we could see parts of the bay not visible from the cruise boats. Sculpted valleys, hidden lakes and deep craters, all carpeted in an iridescent green which looked beautiful in the late afternoon sun.”
The final reason for choosing a seaplane tour is safety. On other transportation options, Vietnamese roads are not in good condition due to traffic jams, and careless drivers. Moreover, Cessna Grand Caravan 208B – EX amphibian aircrafts, which are used for these tours, are the safest single-engine aircraft in the world, manufactured by the Textron Group (USA), with pontoons assembled by Wipaire Company, Minnesota, USA.
