Located in the northeasterly corner of the Halong region, Bai Tu Long Bay remains vastly unexplored. Despite the stunning landscape that easily rivals Halong itself, far fewer visitors make the journey this far north; in effect, Bai Tu Long Bay remains one of Vietnam’s top off-the-beaten-track destinations.
Geographically, Bai Tu Long Bay is similar in every aspect to its more famous cousin, but the fact that- as a travel destination- it is still in its infancy, makes Bai Tu Long Bay all the more appealing. Bai Tu Long Bay’s collection of stoic limestone karsts and serene emerald waters are best enjoyed in peace and solitude, and that is exactly what you’ll find in this region of the bay.
Immerse yourself in your surroundings by plunging into the jade green waters of the bay, or for those with an adventurous streak, climb up onto the top of your cruise ship and dive in from above, or try your hand at some rock climbing on any one of Bai Tu Long’s rocky faces.
The many hidden lagoons, lakes, caves and tunnels of Bai Tu Long Bay are best explored by kayak, which your guide will provide for you. Take exploration into your own hands, and seek a new perspective of the stunning vista that no others have seen before.
Attractions of Bai Tu Long Bay include Thien Canh Son Cave, Vung Vieng Floating Village, Ban Chan Beach, Cong Do area.
