About Bai Tu Long Bay Cruise

As a remote silent area, there are not many cruises that choose to take their guests to Bai Tu Long Bay which makes this small bay becomes an important part of the off-the-beaten-path in the itinerary.

There are different choices for cruise standards from 3-star to 5-star. However, in general, all of these cruises are impressively convenient with full facilities and perfect services.

Budget & Mid-range Bai Tu Long Cruise: To save the budget, you can choose to book 3-star or 4-star cruises which are small wooden boat cruises with no more than 20 cabins. You can easily book these cruises at an extremely reasonable price from only about US$120/person. Some famous 3* or 4* ones are Swan, Paloma, Dragon Pearl Junk, Signature...

Luxury Bai Tu Long Bay Cruise: all luxury boats are made of steel with big size which usually has at least 25 cabins or more, except for the most high-end boat – Emperor Cruise which is an all-inclusive cruise with only 8 cabins, each cabin has a private butler and after the trip, you do not have to pay any extra bill for food and drinks here.

 

 

Bai Tu Long Cruise Itinerary

Just like other travel routes among Halong Bay and other brother bays, you can choose to travel with 2 days or 3 days itinerary.

2 days 1 night Cruise: As usual, the most popular tour is the 2d1n cruise in which tourists will follow about 12 p.m. and arrive at the Cap La area for swimming and kayaking. At dawn, the tour guide will bring you back to the cruise and enjoy the sunset party here with the buy-1-get-1-free drink program. After a cozy dinner, you can choose to watch a movie, play board games, or try the interesting night squid fishing and try to get a squid for supper before going to bed.

On the day after, you can start your new day with a Tai Chi lesson then have a full breakfast, prepare for a visit to the stunning Thien Canh Son cave, and may have a little time resting at Hon Co Island beach before getting back to the boat, have a light brunch before arriving at the port.

3 days 2-night cruises: If you feel like a 2 days tour is not enough, so the option of 3d2n cruises staying in the bay is just for you. Normally, with this itinerary, you will have more time travelling and explore deeper inside this area by swimming at Hon Co Island, visiting Vung Vieng fishing village, or the Cong Dam area with Hon Xep Natural Park.

No, it is not. Bai Tu Long is quite further than both Halong Classic and Lan Ha Bay. There are not many cruises, and the most beautiful scenery still remains. So you should do a cruise in Bai Tu Long instead if you prefer the route which offers less boat & a nice view.

Current Halong Bay separate to 3 main routes: Halong Classic, Bai Tu Long, and Lan Ha Bay. Follow the policy of the Halong board management we could not combine any of them. Most of the routes look quite similar, so if you prefer quiet, less touristy let's choose Bai Tu Long Bay cruise. If you prefer to visit the main sites in Halong like Sung Sot Cave, Titop island let's choose Halong Classic, however, it will be a bit crowded.
