Halong City is the center of culture, commerce, politics for Quang Ninh province in the northern coastal region. The city lies along the bay for a length of 50 km, 165 km away from Hanoi in the northwest, 60 km from Haiphong in the west.
Halong Bay – the natural wonder of the world is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Vietnam. This place is also well known for Bai Tho Mountain and the immortal poem of King Le Thanh Tong carved into a cliff in 1468.
Ha Long Bay is located in northern Vietnam. Its four seasons are all different. The best time to travel to Halong is from August to November. The weather in these months is cool and pleasant. The average daily maximum in Halong is 24°C. You can also visit Halong Bay in the summer, but summer is peak season for Vietnam tourism and therefore very busy.

There are many attractions in and around Halong Bay including Halong Bay itself, amazing caves, fishing villages, Yen Tu Pagoda, Bai Tho Mountain, Yen Duc Village, Dong Trieu Village… Asia Shore Excursions offers many great choices of shore excursions in Halong Bay for cruise passengers at Halong port.

    Hi. There are 6 of us adults that will be cruising on the Celebrity Millennium, arriving Halong Bay at 12 Noon March 7, 2017, departing 10pm March 8. We already have a FULL day planned for March 8, but nothing for March 7. Do you have any suggestions for a PRIVATE boat tour with guide (smaller boat) or a GROUP boat tour (on a Chinese junk) I would think we could disembark about 1pm. Would it be possible to see the famous caves and perhaps a fishing village too? No lunch is required. Could you provide a cost estimate which would include all fees and we would need pick-up & drop off at the ship. Maybe 4 or 5 hours. We are from USA. Thank you.

    Hello,

    Arriving on a cruise via Celebrity Millenium, it would be great if you can post all the prices for all the tours you have advertised to make it transparent for everyone rather than ask them one by one (that will make people decided faster and easier). Otherwise, please send me a price list on your available day tours on my email, thank you.

Things to do and see in Halong shore excursions

Halong Bay – one of the most popular attractions in Vietnam – is also one of seven natural wonders of the world. But more than these amazing caves and wonderful islets, Halong city has several other attractions such as fishing villages, Yen Tu pagoda, Bai Tho Mountain, Yen Duc Village, Dong Trieu Village, and so on. Asia Shore Excursions would like to recommend top things to do and see in Halong shore excursions.

Kayak along the bay

Kayaking in Halong Bay is the best to enjoy all the splendor beauty of this UNESCO Natural Heritage Site. Gently paddle through various islets, explore hidden caves, mysterious lagoons, and stunning beaches. Due to small size, the kayak can easily go through the caves that boats cannot get closer to limestone karst and enjoy the serene natural sight in a less visited corner of Bai Tu Long Bay will be one of the greatest experiences for life. When kayaking, you have to follow the instruction of your guide that it is really dangerous to do by yourself. The guide will show you how to use the paddle and the way to the safe areas. The life jacket is a compulsory part preparing for this activity when kayaking along Halong Bay. Suitable clothes are recommended such as T-shirt and short, swimming suit in summer, warm clothes in the winter, wet shoes, hat, sunglasses, and so on. Available on the shore trip: https://www.shoreexcursions.asia/halong-bay-cruise-1-day/

Explore islets and caves

A cruise around the bay to admire several grottoes and caves such as the Incense Burner Islet (Dinh Huong), Fighting Cock (Ga Choi), Rocky Dog (Cho Da), Heaven Cave (Thien Cung), Amazing Cave (Sung Sot), Luon Cave, and so on. Most of them are always available, but some can be swallowed by the tide. These caves are well-known for fantastic limestone structure that was created by thousands of years due to calcification of water inside. On the cliff, you can find traces of fossils of fresh-water snails. Monkeys mischievously run in groups, fig trees cover all the landscape and many orchids hang their odorous flowers. Available on the tour: https://www.shoreexcursions.asia/halong-bay-cruise-hanoi-capital-2-days/

Yen Tu Pagoda

Yen Tu Pagoda is a complex of pagodas associated with King Tran Nhan Tong that is about 60km from Halong City. In 1299, after a long time successfully building and handling the country, he decided to leave the throne and escape to Yen Tu Mountain and practice Buddhism. Then, Yen Tu Pagoda becomes one of the most sacred pagodas in not only Quang Ninh province but also northern Vietnam. Visiting the mountains, you will hike 1068 meters long steep stone steps to reach the top of the mountain. Yen Tu Pagoda is a great place to learn about Vietnam Buddhism and admire the Vietnamese ancient architecture. The pagoda can be accessed by taking 2-3 hours on the cable car but most of the locals choose to hike step by step to show their devotion to the Buddha.
