Hayley, thank you for this post! Halong Bay looks incredible and your post has only made me more excited to visit! We hope to travel to Vietnam next April so I’m glad you suggested it as a good time of the year to visit! I’ll be saving this post to refresh my brains next year when it comes to booking a tour. I’m so interested about the story beyond the bay, with the dragons, definitely going to be looking into that now – love a good legend tale!

I look forward to reading more of your content!

I visited Vietnam and Ha Long Bay just this past December and had the pleasure of taking a day tour from Hanoi to Halong Bay. We were traveling there for only a week, so we never thought to stay in the Ha Long area. I also agree about the timing–peak tourist season being around New Years. The ferry port was chock-full of people and the bay full of ships, but despite all of that the views were stunning! I’ll have to go back to Vietnam again and climb Bo Thai Mountain because the views from there are surely some of… Read more »

This is such a comprehensive guide to travel from Hanoi to Halong Bay! I totally loved the place although it was cloudy when I visit, I thoroughly enjoyed it. My only regret was I did not choose a boat stay package. Hopefully I am able to go back and try the night package too.

I have been reading a lot about Halong Bay lately and your photos are just as stunning as I have seen it described! That kayaking adventure looks like so much fun, I would definitely want to hop on that excursion!

Halong Bay looks beautiful! I guess most people only do day trips and that’s why most tours run from Hanoi but this definitely looks like a place I would want to stay overnight in. It’s nice you could join a tour in the bay from Hanoi to Halong Bay 🙂 Bo Thai looks so high up! I can’t believe you can climb that in only 25 minutes. This looks like such a fun trip, love your photos.

Wow! Halong Bay looks stunning! I love kayaking and would probably do the same tour that you did as well as a boat cruise!

Thank you for sharing this information. Looks amazing. We will be first time visitors next May. I was wondering, if we stayed in Hanoi for a couple of days, could we travel to Halong Bay for an overnight cruise then get transport/private driver to Tam Coc/Ninh Bihn to save going back to Hanoi?. Cheers Tracey

[…] your Vietnam journey. It is quite central to a lot of great destinations. You can easily get to Ha Long Bay and to do a one or two day cruise in turquoise water and between limestone mountains. Another great […]
