Bai Tu Long Bay, Halong Bay
(4.8/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Travel off the beaten path for quiet beaches and dramatic karst mountains at Bai Tu Long Bay. This attraction is similar to Halong Bay, but is much less crowded because it is less well-known among tourists. Many of its beaches are empty, which make this site an ideal spot for a day trip. Though it doesn't have as many grottos as other nearby beaches, it is rich in biodiversity, limestone cliffs, and a vibrant coastal ecosystem.

  • Bai Tu Long Bay is actually a fairly recent, so still preserved and less frequent circuit. In fact, it's really quiet! The tour organized by Indochina Junk includes a visit to a fishing village, very interesting. More the company pays to the village a right of entry for each visitor, allowing the continuation of this project. The boat ride is a delight.

  • Agree with the other reviewers and Tom and his crew were great. Virtually no one else except our small group. Great time kayaking and visiting the fish farm.
