Reasons to Visit
  • Ha Long Bay was first listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994, in recognition of its outstanding, universal aesthetic value.

  • Sumptuous seafood menu – Halong Bay is famous for its seafood. It’s hard to resist the plump shrimp, the delicate blush of an octopus tentacle, the rich crab meat served in a really light delicate broth made of clam nectar and garlic, and garnished with tiny slices of juicy limes.
  • Activities - Halong Bay is renowned for adventure activities such as Trekking, Cycling, Snorkeling, Kayaking, Fishing.
