Overview of Halong Bay Cruises

As a Natural World Heritage, Halong Bay owns a unique beauty that could not be found anywhere in the world. A cruise is a great choice to explore the Bay as cruising is the only way that you can admire all the glory conveniently.

Halong Bay cruise – A must-do experience in Vietnam

Just about a 2-hour shuttle bus from Hanoi to Halong Bay, a cruise will bring you on an unimaginable trip through the majestic karst of small and big mountains in interesting shapes, visit stunning natural caves, kayaking, and swim in the offshore crystal clear seawater, observe the local daily life floating in the Bay, etc.


Halong Bay Cruising Itinerary

Not all cruises in Halong Bay do the same route. You can easily find and choose the Halong Bay itinerary with different cruise duration, areas, and departure ports based on your preference.

  • Depending on cruise length: Day trip, 2 days 1 night, 3 days 2 nights, 4 days 3 nights, or a customized itinerary
  • Depending on destination: Halong Bay Central, Bai Tu Long Bay, Cat Ba Island, or Lan Ha Bay
  • Depending on the cruise port: Halong International cruise port, Tuan Chau Harbor, or Vinashin Harbour


Day cruise

As the travel time is limited (from 4 – 8 hours), a Halong Bay day cruise from Hanoi can only show the bay’s general view; however, these shortened itineraries are suitable for those who do not have much time to explore the Bay.

The typical itineraries for a day trip allow travelers to visit some famous caves and islands, such as Thien Cung Cave, Sung Sot Cave, Titop Island, and Cock Fighting Islet.


Overnight cruise

Halong Bay cruise overnight is the most chosen one. You can decide between a 2-day-1-night or 3-day-2-night itinerary.

  • 2 days 1 night: are most popular because the itinerary isn’t short and too long to fit almost all tourists. Compared with the day trip, the 2d1n owns diverse options for the itinerary, which allows you to travel deeply inside Halong.
  • 3 days 2 nights: are the perfect option for those who dive deep into the glory of the Bay. With the itinerary, you will have the chance to visit Halong Bay and visit 3 stunning Bays: Lan Ha Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay, and Cat Ba Island.
