About Ha Long Bay City (Hanoi), Vietnam

One of Vietnam's favorite travel destinations, Halong Bay is famous for it's amazing limestone cliffs, numerous caves, and unbelievable scenic beauty. The vast majority of travelers going to Halong Bay arrive to either of Vietnam's two largest cities first- Hanoi, or Saigon, and then make arrangements from there. Hanoi is the closer of the cities to the destination of Halong.

Write A Port Tip

Ha Long Bay is probably the most beautiful place I have been on earth, especially while the sun was setting over the 1,900 plus islands out in the bay. It brought peace and spirituality to the crazy world in which we live. While it was a very long trip to get there on our excursion, Hanoi was an amazing experience. It was the one we were most hesitant to visit, but so glad we did. Throw everything you were taught in school about Vietnam being Communist... because you will have it all wrong. Very capitalistic and fun to experience.

The experience from Chan May was so good, our group decided to to tour together in Ha Long Bay. Once again our 2 Vietnamese ladies got us vans to tour the city and cruise the bay for $30USD and we saw the bay, caves with authentic experience instead of big bus Americanized tours. On our way back we ask our driver to drop us couple of miles from the port near local restaurants and shops, we ended up eating locally and shop all the way back to the ship. Another perfect day.

This is by far the most beautiful “Harbour”. Sailing through this miracle was amazing. The ship was positioned close to shore, with a view on the rocks. Tender boots took us to shore within a few minutes.

Red Lotus had a driver and guide waiting for us on arrival. They took us for a tour of Halong Bay. They rented a boat that included lunch for us. We toured the bay and visited the cave. The guide and driver drove us to Hanoi to the Sheraton Hanoi where we had made our own reservations. The price of the tours included lunch and admissions to all sited visited. The next morning the driver and guide picked us up at the hotel for a tour of Hanoi. We attempted to visit the memorial of Ho Chi Minh but the lines were very long with students and over visitor, We visited a couple other locations in the city and returned to the Ho Chi Minh Memorial after it was closed. We took pictures of the area. We went to a water puppet show and shopping after. We returned to the ship later in the evening.
