Bai Tu Long Bay, Halong Bay

(500+ reviews on the web)
Water Body
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Bai Tu Long Bay by using our Halong Bay trip generator.
