Halong Bay, Halong Bay

(4.2/5 based on 6,500+ reviews on the web)
Cruise among the conical peaks and karst pillars of Halong Bay, a World Heritage Site-honored scenic seascape of various limestone landforms modeled into natural arches and towers by coastal erosion. This site features nearly 1,600 mostly uninhabited islands and islets. Legend has it that this is the place from which a mountain dragon plunged into the sea, crushing the land with his powerful tale and leaving behind a scatter of islets. Go kayaking, explore caves, visit a fishing village, or spend the night in an island bungalow. The extreme popularity of the bay among locals and tourists alike has taken a toll on the natural environment-- sometimes the water is so polluted that it is not suitable for swimming or snorkeling. Plan your visit to Halong Bay and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Halong Bay travel itinerary maker.

  • No matter whether a couple of hours or three days, if you go to Vietnam you have to make it here. It is a very special, quiet, beautiful and amazing place. 
  • Without a doubt one of the must-see when you go to the Philippines, the view is very picturesque, cruises are making zig-zag between the formations, in our case it was a bit cloudy, but the landscape was nonetheless very nice.
