ActivitiesVisiting Halong Bay

Halong Bay and Cat Ba are one of the highlights of Vietnam. From both locations, you can make beautiful boatrips and cruise through the beautiful landscape filled with karst mountains.

You can opt to travel to Halong Bay independent. but also book an organised tour including transport from Hanoi. We recommend to book a boat cruise incl. transport from Hanoi as you will have more choice and tours are often cheaper in Hanoi than tours sold by agencies in Halong Bay.

Tours sell as cheap as €31 for a day-trip and €117 for a 2D1N cruise.

See here our 2 favourite tours from to Halong Bay:

*Both tours include free pick-up and drop-off in Hanoi.

If you have a few extra days to spend, you can also visit Lan Ha Bay from Cat Ba. But if you are short in time, Halong Bay is definitely a better option.
