Highlight Activities in Halong Bay

Getting on a bamboo boat

  • Best for: Nature Lovers

Coming to Halong Bay, you will have a chance to explore its mysterious limestone caves by bamboo boat rowed by the fisherman.

The bamboo boat is the popular transport of the local people in the fishing villages of Halong. Four to five people can sit together on the boat, which makes it a more excellent choice for small groups than kayaking.

Unlike kayaking, you will be easier to admire and take many pictures of the bay’s scenery because you don’t have to row the boat. Moreover, you can also ask the fisherman to take a photo of your family.
