Tips for Choose the Perfect Halong Bay Cruise for You

Picking a single Halong Bay cruise package or experience is easier said than done. There are hundreds of varying packages offered; once you think you stumbled on the perfect package, the next one gets even better. It can be an overwhelming process for anyone due to the wide array of choices; over 200 available boats with their own routes, activities, prices and overall facilities. The tips and guide below might be able to help you make up your mind and finally go for the best luxury Halong Bay Cruise .

Decide on the Length of Your Stay

Day trip cruises are typically short compared to the other trips; they basically grant the tourist a brief experience of navigating among the majestic islands. Dozens of day cruises can be booked without overnight stays; these trips typically depart from Cat Ba or Hanoi, Halong City.

If you prefer, you can go for a lengthy day trip beginning in Hanoi including a half-day cruise in the bay. This option is not the most popular package out there because tourists feel rushed and they're dead tired at the end of the day. A popular classic package choice would be overnight Bai Tu Long Bay cruises since they allow the tourists a lot more time to actually relax and take in the scenery.

Plan the Specific Place You Want to Go to

The entire area may be referred to as Halong Bay, but there are technically 3 different bays namely La Han Bay, Ha Long and Bai Tu Long. Each offers its own picturesque surroundings; amazing limestone cliffs, beautiful beaches, interesting caves and bays.

Thoroughly Check What's Included in the Package

Cruise operators have agreed that their packages would typically include everything like food and activities except for the drinks; this goes across the board but it wouldn't hurt to double check. Remember to carefully read everything written in proposed itineraries by each company you shortlisted; take note of daily activities too.

Do a Little Research on the Cruise Boats

It might not seem that important at first, but it is since there's a wide array of boat sizes, styles and quality standards to choose from. Always ask which of the boats will be used on the package you chose and do simple online searches before finalising the payment; is the boat decent? How long has the boat been in use? What do reviews say?
