A glimpse on Halong Bay’s beauty

Halong Bay – a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New Seven Wonder of the World – is definitely a must-see destination in Vietnam. But what if you have a short business trip nearby and don’t have much time for touring? Just rest assured, because even with just one day, you can take glimpse over Halong Bay and soak up its atmosphere.

The first thing to do is find a means of transport. You can either hire a private boat or take a cruise via travel agents. If you hire a boat, you are free to choose wherever to visit, but you may end up wasting time if you have no idea which place to travel to, since you have only one day. This way is only recommended if you are accompanied by someone who knows much about Halong Bay. Otherwise, take a cruise and you can visit famous spots scheduled by the tour agent.

Since you have a whole day, sight-seeing may be not enough. You should also visit many islands scattered on Halong Bay. Dau Be, Dau Go and Cat Ba are the most visited islands by commercial cruises. Dau Be Island is a very popular swimming and diving spot because of its rich coral. Dau Go Island is famous for having the most beautiful grotto in Halong Bay – Thien Cung Grotto, a cave with complex structure of many different levels and chambers. Cat Ba, the largest and probably most popular destination in Ha Long Bay, is half covered by a National Park and incredibly bio-diverse. Other islands like Bo Hon, Ban Sen, Quan Lạn or Van Don may be interesting as well.

Your trip will be imperfect if you don’t try kayaking. It is the best way to explore the beauty of Halong Bay. Paddle through islets; visit hidden caves, lagoons, unspoiled beaches and floating fishing villages… Kayaks can bring you to where other big boats cannot. You can easily hire a kayak, but if you go by tour it often costs less than you yourself hire one.
