Bai Tu Long Bay, Halong Bay

(4.8/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • Unlike the touristy spots of Halong Bay, this is the less crowded area to see panoramic views of the bay that are breathtaking and spectacular all rolled into one. 
  • I found Bai Tu Long is more interesting to visit as there are so many little islands without names. Boat cruise through this area is just amazing
