Cruising to Lan Ha Bay - New trend for Halong Bay Cruise

November 14, 2022 - 3463 views

Located in the southern part of Ha Long Bay and east of Cat Ba Island, Lan Ha Bay is also known as "the Lost Heaven" because of its extremely wild beauty. With the wild and natural beauty, Lan Ha Bay is compared as the second Ha Long Bay in the North of Vietnam.

Why does Lan Ha Bay become a NEW TREND?

Well, let me point out some reasons that I’m sure will make you like this Bay.

1. Short transfer

It only takes you about 2 hours from your hotel in Hanoi to Got Ferry where the cruises disembark from. Using the highway from Hanoi to Haiphong to reach Lan Ha Bay cruise means it will be faster and can avoid traffic jams and this will benefit the tourists who have car sickness.

Instead of 04 driving-hour with the traditional path from Hanoi – Halong, now it only takes 2-hour driving with luxury car experience and more comfortable on a massage chair.

Besides, the pickup time from the bus will be 09:00 a.m which means you may have more time for your sleep and breakfast instead of waking up early in the morning and prepare before 07:30 a.m for a Halong Bay cruise.

2. Less Touristy

Most of the cruises here are luxurious so it will not be as crowded as in Halong Bay. I am sure that you do not like seeing the bay full of tourists and you will see a lot of people at every attraction here. For a simple example, if you can find 100 cruises at Halong Bay, you will only see about 10 cruises at Lan Ha Bay which means the number of cruises in Halong Bay is much more than in Lan Ha Bay.

And I guess nobody wants to visit an island to see the view of the bay but there are too many tourists or go sailing the kayak, visit the caves with so many boats there. Having fewer cruises with higher quality also means fewer tourists there.

The bay totally can offer the tourists a new chance to admire the wide and spectacular scenery of 400 big and small islands with many interesting shapes.All the islands in Lan Ha Bay are covered with green trees even with the small islands.

3. The service and quality cruise here are very good as well

Some of the tourists might have a fear of unqualified cruises but the cruises we cooperate with are qualified cruises based on the conditions of the Administration of Halong Bay.

The rooms and the cruise’s decor are highly luxurious, you can find both traditional and modern styles on the cruise. The guide and staff on deck are all very nice and have good knowledge about the islands, caves,… in Lan Ha Bay


4. Have Chance visit Cat Ba Island 

The itinerary of the cruise is that you can have a chance to visit Cat Ba island which has National Park. There will be some activities such as biking on this peaceful island and visiting some amazing caves.

Some of you might not want to spend the whole cruise trip on deck; especially with the active people, join the activities on Cat Ba island might be a great option that helps you move your body's organs to get some more energy after staying on the boat for such a long time.

And you also can stay on the island after the cruise. There are many resorts, hotels, homestays on Cat Ba island, and national parks for you to spend one night. Therefore, you can do visit both the bay and Cat Ba island which is a new attractive attraction for foreign tourists.

Coming back to visit the bay or first time come here, just make sure you will visit Lan Ha Bay.
