Many of the cruises in Halong Bay will offer you the experience of a lifetime, but to truly make your time here something special you can’t beat the luxury cruise lines. Paradise Peak or Orchid Cruise, for example, both provide top of the line service, beautiful private rooms, and deliciously savoury meals fresh from the sea.

They will pamper you and your loved one, making sure every need is met and going that extra mile to create the most romantic setting possible. Candlelit dinners, scattered rose petals, or maybe just making sure you have a quiet chair and a glass of wine to sit next to your love and soak in the incredible views.

This is the place for emerald seas and watercolor skies, fresh sea breezes and quiet twilight, after all. While you explore the bay, filled with its majestic limestone karsts and colorful fishing villages, you’ll be given many exciting options for how to spend your time.

Whether you’re the adventurous couple who want to kayak through caves, the cultural couple who want to go meet the local fishermen, or maybe you just want to put your feet up and have a drink on the deck, you should also consider these opportunities for something even more memorable.

Dine in a Sea Cave

You have to arrange this before you go, but dining in a sea cave is something truly remarkable. You’ll be wined and dined with an exquisitely prepared meal while candlelight bounces off the ancient walls of rippling stone.

Spend the evening with this touch of mystery, privacy, and romance to end an already amazing day, and you’ll fall in love all over again.

Update: From 2016, cave dining has been banned in order to minimize human impact on Halong caves.

Watch the Sunset
