Bai Tu Long bay (2 days & 1 night trip, departure on everyday)

Occupying three-quarters of the Halong Bay area, Bai Tu Long Bay is one of the three triangular peaks of the World Natural Heritage.


Bai Tu Long Bay is different from the rest of the World Natural Heritage. In Halong Bay over four hundred boats bring thousands of tourists each day so hundreds of tourists converge on the same place at the same time. At Sung Sot Cave you are likely to encounter 6 or 7 other groups of tourists in the chamber making it difficult to hear your tour guide’s talk about the geological value of the cave and how it was formed. Contrastingly Bai Tu Long Bay will charm you with its wild beauty with stone mountains, caves, long sandy beach, corals, forests, mangrove forests and lovely fishing village – and few tourists.


It is rare to find a place on Halong Bay that is as packed full of aesthetic beauty, biodiversity, and culture as Bai Tu Long Bay – an outdoor museum where more than 340 millions years of history is stored and conserved with places such as: Da Xep Park, Ang Cong Dam, Thien Canh Son Cave, Quan Lan Island, and Vung Vieng fishing village...
