This article from the captain of Emerauede Classic Cruise, talking about Halong bay charms and unmissable attractions of it.
A gorgeous 3 hour drive through the Red River Delta, Halong Bay is situated in the Gulf of Tonkin and promises a vacation that balances relaxation alongside recreation. Enjoying an enchanting overnight cruise on the Bay is the most popular way in which to explore the UNESCO Heritage Site. Although, gently cruising on board the luxurious Emeraude is an unbeatable experience in itself, the scope for fun here is quite simply boundless. Here are a few ways on how to make the most of your Emeraude Cruise experience.
From embarking on kakay when exploring the grottos and secluded bays, to discovering the Bay from an elevated perspective in a helicopter, this place is fun! There are a number of exciting ways by which to explore and enjoy the magnificent Halong Bay . Surrounded by the sea and stunning limestone cliffs, the floating villages of Halong Bay are unique and make for a fascinating overnight stay or day-excursion. Providing travelers with the opportunity to share time with families living here, it is an eye-opening experience that goes beyond the comfort of the Emeraude and embraces genuine insights into local lifestyles here.
Rise early and enjoy some early morning Tai Chi, before embarking on some under water exploration with a snorkel! As the crowds slip away, make the most of the deserted bays and enjoy the unique candlelit cave dinner. Alternatively, discover the fabulous seascapes of Halong Bay and Nha Trang from a flying boat! These inflatable hovercrafts can carry over 400kg each while cruising at an average speed of 70km per hour! Another great way to view the epic scenery of Halong Bay while breaking out a sweat is to do a climb. Everyone regardless of athletic ability can ascend the Karst of Halong alongside a professional guide, to be rewarded with exceptional views!
