Hello tony,
we have spoken earlier. We are staying around Hanoi during the period 20.12 through 28.12. We are 2 adults and 2 kids (9,11) and like to share a larger cabin if you have.

My wife would prefer a more luxury cruise style. If the cruises over 24.12. 2 days 1 night are full, we can be flexible, but we would prefer on the 24.12.

Please let me know what you recommend.

Dear Tony,
Thank you very much for the two offers on our Vietnam travel Hanoi to Halong bay. I will call you tomorrow to finalize.

In the meantime, if you could let me know
- what the difference is between V'Spirit and Royal Wings?
- what is the difference between the Royal Exe and Exe Cabin?
- what kind of Cabins would the two adjecent cabins be?

Unfortunately ;-) our kids tend to sleep in our bed. Many times I had booked additional beds that stayed empty. So I would rather book a nicer cabin than an additional cabin that will stay empty ;-)

Kind regards, Heiko

Welcome to Halong bay - The legend of Asia
Ha Long are 2 separated words: Ha means descending and Long means dragon. Halong can be translated as " Where the Dragon descends into the sea".

Halong bay, located in the gulf of Tonkin - Northest of Vietnam, has an area of 1553 sqkm with 1960 karst limstone islands. They have been naturally formed for over 240 millions years. With vivid imagination, Vietnamese people gave them dear names such as Cho Da(stone dog), Trong Mai( a couple of chicken), Hon Ngon Tay( finger islet), Ong Su( buddhist scuptured islet)... Those islands and islets are rising up from blue sea in the way of nature like no one. This gives the visitors the feeling: Get lost in "Paradise on Earth".

Halong bay was twice recognized as World Natural Heritage Site in 1994, 2000 and one of 7 new Natural Wonders with an area of 430 sqkm. The area contains 775 islets in the form of triangle: To the West - Do Go island, To the East - Cong Tay islet and to the South - Ba Ham lake. Underneath these island exist a system of caves and grottos. The caves look like mysterious castles: Sung Sot cave, Thien Cung cave, Do Go grotto, Sang and Toi caves, Trinh Nu cave, Do Tien(fairy cave)....

Top things to do on Halong bay tour

Other bays accessible to Halong bay

Eating & Drinking
Overnight on boat: Everything has to be prepared on land before sailing and there is no shop or market in the bay. Your menu on junks are most related with seafood. If you are vegetarian or can not eat some kinds of seafood, you should inform on your Halong tour booking. You will have perfect holiday in Hanlong bay. You can have all kinds of drinks from bottled water to wine. The cost varies from one cruise to another depending on starndard or 5star levels. Normally, Bottle of water cost 1$. Soft drink costs about 2USD.... Please remmember that you are not allowed to bring wine on boat. Some junks will take 10 to 20 USD service charge for a bottle of wine if you bring it on boat.

The top dinning restaurant in Halong city is Cua Vang - Address: To 9 Khu 9 - Bãi Cháy - HaLong city. The second restaurant is Co Ngu - Block C2, Luxury Villa Zone, Halong Road, Bai Chay.

What kinds of food on Halong bay cruises Thousand times, this questions has been asked by our clients when they were going to book their Halong bay trips with us. some of them have small kids and worried what kind of food for their kids during Halong bay tour. Some of them are vegetarian and how they can live on their trip to Halong bay. I have to say it does not matter where you can not eat this food, that food... The most important thing is you have to inform us on your Halong bay tour booking. More information on what kinds of food you will enjoy on Halong holiday in the following link:

What to bring for Halong bay trip
Just overnight on boat for 1 or 2 nights, you do not need to carry all your luggage from Hanoi. All most hotels in Hanoi have stores for luggage. Check with them the night before your Halong bay excursions. Do remmember sun cream, sun glasses, cameras for wonderful photos. One of the most important things that should be always with you is your pastport. On booking your Halong bay tour, we will ask for the details of your passport and visa to Vietnam. We do check-in for you before you arrive in Halong bay. However, sometimes policemen administratively check the clients' passports onboard.

Best hotels in Halong city
There are many hotels in Halong city from standard to 4star levels. However, we advise you to stay in 3, 4star hotel here because standard to 2star hotel are empty most of the time except Summer. The service and rooms will satisfy your demanding.

How to travel to Halong bay
From Hanoi: There are 3 different ways. By shuttle van, we arrange daily shuttle van and bus from Hanoi to Halong bay. If you are the first person on the van, you will go around to pick up 8 more clients. If you are the first one on the shuttle bus, you will go around to pick up 23 more clients. It is still very good because you will be picked up and dropped off at your hotels in Hanoi Old Quarter. The most important is that our driver drive safely on the road. It must better than going by public bus.

By public bus, you have to take taxi from your hotel to Gialam station or Luong Yen station. On arrival in Halong city, you will have to take a motobike to the pier. There are 4 different piers for different boats and motobike drivers do not know. If you decide to go by public bus, you should go from Hanoi at 6:00am. Remmeber most of the cruises depart at 12:15. The public transportation is not good at all. The drivers drive so fast and stop suddenly to pick up clients on the roadside wherever they see. They can make more money, but this cause a lot of accidents. One year in Vietnam, there are about 11.000 people killed by most public buses.

The 3rd way is by private transfer - car, van, bus. This is the most convenient way. You will be taken care by a professional driver. You will be picked up and dropped at your hotel. See our Private Hanoi - Halong bay transfer here

Bet time to tour Halong bay
From April to October, it is the best time to tour Halong bay with the blue sky. From April to beginning of June, Halong bay is at its best like a girl at the age of 16 years old. The water is clear and evergreen. The sunrise and sunset is the best of the whole year. From the middle of June to the beginnning of September, it is as so nice as in the April, but sometimes storm happens and the cruises are not allowed to going on sailing. Why it is best time?

Banking & money
There are ATMS at most big hotels in Halong city. However, when you join Halong bay excursions with overnight onboard, you had better prepare some dollar and Vietnam Dong from Hanoi. The reason is that some boat in Halong bay do not accept credit card. You need to buy drinks onboard because you are not allowed to carry drinks onboard.

How can we choose the best cruise boat in Halong bay
It depends on your travel style: Luxury, adventure or combination of both. More advices how to choose your cruise in Halong bay

Safety in Halong bay
The local goverment decides each day whether the junks in Halong bay can sail out ornot. It depends on the weather. However, the causes for most of the accidents happening in Halong bay were the cruise quality. Every junks show their beautiful photos and try to prove their boats to be the best at its level. After the accident, the owner of the junk will change its name. Therefore, it is useless to mention the sank cruise boats here. This is the reason every 3 month, we check the cruises in person. The list of the cruise boats here may change as well.

BBC made a safety report in Halong bay when it was chosen among the new Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The safety in Halong bay ranks very good. Talk with our cruise advisors before your Halong tours booking for the best cruise at its level.

Accidents in Halong bay
+ 17 Feb 2011: Truong Hai 06 junk sank at 5:00am killing 12tourists and 1 guide. 9 other tourists were rescued. The cause came from the camptain and machinist who did not lock pumping machine system. The crew was not on duty at night(according to the law, the junk is kept an eye by someone 24/7). The camptain and machinist were put in prison. This boat is a low quality cruise for backpackers.
+ 8 May 2011: Junk named QN 2070 was sunk. 28 tourists was recused. No one died.
+ 3 Oct 2012: The accident between Dong Phong 02 and tender from Paradise cruise happened near Sung Sot cave, killing 5 tourists. Both of camptains were arrested and in prison.
+ 18 Feb 2014: The junk - QN 3736 was on fire. No one died
+ 28 August 2014: Tung Trang junk - BKS QN 2447 was sunk near Ba Hang cave. 13 Tourists were recused. No one died.

What to do while boarding the junk
Listen to the safety briefing from the cruise manager( not being done on many junks). Do not worry. Take our advices:

Hang Sung Sot - Surprising cave
The name of the cave informs us how beautiful the cave is. The name was given by the French in 1901 with the meaning: The more you come further inside the cave, the more surprised you will get. After 40 paved steps, you will get to the entrance. Do miss the photos at the first open space from the trees on your right side. The photos from here have shoted many people with the decision to visit Ha Long bay. The cave is divided into 3 large and amazing chambers. The 1st chamber is smallest. Here, you can see so beautiful staletites and stalagemites naturally carved with a small fresh water pond. From here, our tour guide will take you to the 2nd chamber through a small limestone gate. Just putting your feet in the second part, you will see an astonishing pink-lit 'penis rock'(really it is the only way to describle it). It is regarded as the symbol of fertility. Our tour guide will also show you where the Buddha is sitting. In this part, you can see the appalling ceiling of the cave. Continue your walk to the last chamber. It is the largest chamber which looks like an enchanting opera hall. Our guide will show you many different rock formations like melon ball, tiger, dragon, couple in love, lady Buddha, turttle...formations.

Cua Van Floating village - One of 16 most beautiful and ancient villages in the world
In 2012, Cua van floating village was selected by www.journeyetc.com as one of 16 most beautiful and ancient villages in the world. This selection is based on 3 indexes: Ancient, Charming and special culture. Cua Van village serves all of them. This peaceful village has 300 families who live on fishing from Ha Long bay. Their houses are floating and tied under beautiful limestone cliffs. Coming to the village, you are not disturbed by the noise, smoke of traffic but enjoy the peace and sometimes you hear the sound from the fishing boats. You will also see some kids at the age of 4 or 5 year old rowing boats from one house to another to see friends. Like their parents, the kids regard the boats as their house and the bay as their homeland. They mix their souls and spirits with Halong bay.
