Discover the most prominent attractions with Halong Bay Cruises

Although the whole area is mostly known as Halong Bay, there are in fact 3 different bays: Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay, and Lan Ha Bay which all share a similar climate, cultural, geological, and geographical character. If you are planning a cruise trip in Halong and feel a little hesistant on choosing a cruise and a bay area, let Halong bay Cruises support you with a list of available attractions on your voyage.



1. Halong Bay


Halong Bay is the most popular choice amongst tourists with a huge number of day cruises and overnight cruises, which you also find the most crowded area. Ignoring that side, Halong Bay offers the most beautiful tourist spots in all areas.



Located in the central area of the bay in Bo Hon Island, Sung Sot Cave is the most beautiful and spacious cave which is one of must-visit attractions in Halong Bay. Covering a total area of over 10,000 square meter, Sung Sot cave is described as an “Opera House” with thousands of magic stalactites and stalagmites in various shapes

Titov Island is the only spot allowing swimming in the bay with a crescent-shaped sand beach. Tourists can also take a panoramic view of magnificent Halong Bay from the top of the mountain on the island.

Luon Cave is a preferred place of tourists for kayaking and sampan boating. Luon Cave is actually a small gate with the 4-meter width, 60-meter length, and about from 2.5 to 4-meter height depending on the tide level. After passing the pretty arched entrance, you will come across a tranquil round lake formed by an enclosed group of limestone mountains.

Soi Sim island is an ideal attraction for tourists which is invested as an eco-tourism site with a system of small wooden lodges, flora and fauna conservation area, the system of sight-seeing. The island still retains the pristine beach and green primeval forest.

At Tung Sau Pearl Farm, visitors can witness the pearl growing system as well as the process to produce valuable pearl and jewelry products. "Pearl Paradise" is the name that tourists call when coming to this place.

2. Lan Ha Bay


Located to the south of Halong Bay, Lan Ha Bay, home of Cat Ba Island, recently emerges as a great alternative to Halong Bay with many new attractions.



Ba Trai Dao Islets (Three Peaches Islets) is known as an ideal attraction in Lan Ha Bay for kayaking and swimming thanks to its wonderfully secluded and pristine beach laying near Cat Ba Island. 

Ao Ech is a beautiful water area in Lan Ha Bay which is very ideal for kayaking activity.

Dark and Bright Cave has the similar structure as Luon Cave. It is a small gate only accessed by kayaks and small boats. Through the gate, tourists will meet a calm circular lake surrounded by luxuriant vegetation, craggy cliffs, and shady ancient trees.

Trung Trang Cave is located in Trung Trang valley, about 15 km northwest of Cat Ba island. Typical for more than 150 small and large caves in Cat Ba archipelago, this cave become a popular attraction for travelers when cruising in Lan Ha Bay.

Viet Hai is a small village in the midst of jungles, covered by high mountain ranges of the Cat Ba National Park. Coming to this village, tourists could join in many activities: biking, trekking, visiting ancient houses, or communicating with locals.

3. Bai Tu Long Bay


Northeast of Halong Bay is the area of Bai Tu Long Bay. Beautiful as Halong Bay but in some ways, Bai Tu Long Bay is more stunning and pristine in natural landscapes. It remains an extensive unexplored area with many pretty spots.



Thien Canh Son is a rather unspoiled cave located on Bai Tu Long Bay in the Cong Do Conservation Area. Outside the cave, visitors could admire the spectacular views of Bai Tu Long Bay, while inside visitors will be impressed by the strange beauty of stalactites in unique shapes formed millions of years ago.

Vung Vieng village is a favored stop of cruising track on Bai Tu Long Bay by its scenic setting and typical culture of a fishing village. Coming to this village, tourists will have a great chance to experience local rowing boats to discover the interesting daily lives of the inhabitants.

Cap La is a wonderful landscape with a peaceful water area and many pristine small white sand beaches. Many cruises choose Cap La beach as a part of tour route for kayaking activity. 

Cong Dam is best known for its crystal clear sandy beaches. Tourists can enjoy kayaking or just relax on a stunning secluded beach.
