Halong Bay Overnight Cruise - Exciting Experiences Of A Wanderlust Guy

Hello friends! I just returned from Ha Long Bay, after a 2 day 1 night trip with exciting things: taking Hai Au seaplane from Hanoi to Halong and experience Halong Bay Overnight Cruise tour. This is the first time I take to travel to Halong Bay and actually it’s a memorable experience!

  • On first thing: Ha Long Bay Seaplane Tours, I will write a travel review next time.
  • The second thing: taking Halong Bay overnight cruise. A peaceful and exquisite experience.

After taking this Ha Long Bay tour, I feel that myself so lucky. Before this trip, I never travel to Ha Long Bay. And then, I have chances to explore Halong in two forms: by the seaplane and cruise.

6 amazing things when taking Halong Bay Overnight Cruise

2 days 1 night with Paloma cruise on the sea and exploring Halong Bay is an interesting experience. The feeling of sleeping on a bobbing wooden boat, far away from the city, tourist sites … the only beautiful scenery around, only the imposing limestone rocks rising up the middle of the sea … the time seems goes slow down.

1 / Overnight on Bai Tu Long Bay

Great! I can use this word to talk about falling asleep on the bay. Space is extremely quiet. In the middle of the night, there’s nothing but the moonlight, the limestone mountains, some boats nearby and the quiet night.

That night, I had a decent sleep, a beautiful dream – as this trip. On that day, I went with two friends who are photographers, I joked to them that both of them are on the honeymoon. I know two guys both regrets: “Why not bring wives or girlfriend on this trip?”

This scene is very romantic for couples. So cool!

2 / Having meals and enjoy the impossibly beautiful views

The next thing impressed me is the meals: Not about foods (although the food here very good), just the vision at the dining table overlooks the window. It’s hard to describe the feeling when you’re taking the meal and admire the limestone rocks outside, the natural wonders pass in front of my eyes, slowly. I am truly impressed! Again, Halong Bay overnight cruise tour evokes in my heart something very peaceful. And luxury too!

3 / Visit the ancient fishing village and watch cultured pearls

Next is the experience of sitting on the small boat visit Vung Vien fishing village. The boatman rowing gently a small boat surfing on the water. I have been visiting many fishing villages, but here it enveloped a surprisingly quiet.

You can feel the quietness so clear that can hear the sound of the oars touching in the water surface. Hear clearly the “Flickr – Flickr” of the camera shutter. Hearing clearly the conversation of tourists who talking on this quiet space.

I asked the boatman about this fishing village, about the life of locals, will these rocky mountains help protect them when there is a storm? How to buried dead people on the islands in the bay?

Finally, the boat stopped at a pearl culture facility. Everybody can see how to nourished mussels, saw the scene of implanting the tiny pearls into the mussels to raise.

I have been seen cultured pearls in Phu Quoc but it not gets satisfied as in Ha Long. Seems these services open to serve the needs of the tourist so everything very professional, includes the boatman, the dock… etc.

4. 4 star Halong Bay overnight cruise

As I said above, the service in Ha Long Bay is very professional and seems only for tourism. So, the service on the boat is very thoughtful. I remember on the trip, there was a Spanish couple who were on a honeymoon. They have dinner at the restaurant, suddenly, the manager and tour guide brought cake and a bouquet of flower arrived and singing a song dedicated to those two. Then they give gifts, ask this couple to kiss, everyone on the cruise gets a sudden happy moment, especially me haha!

Beside, staffs here are very thoughtful , they prepared carefully each meal, each trip for visitors. They offer each cold towel for me to wipe the face when going outside (taking a kayak, rowing boat… for example) or guide each gesture for foreigner tourist when they eat Vietnamese foods

In conclusion, I am totally satisfied with the price of 2,400,000VND for Halong Bay Overnight Cruise tour in 2 days / 1 night and get experiences like this, I think it is reasonable, can say is cheap.

All the rooms in classic style, super romantic: wood-paneled rooms, very suitable for couples and those who prefer quiet.

5. Kayaking explore Bai Tu Long Bay

I have taken kayak many times before, but not got far, also got slightly constrained. But kayaking in Bai Tu Long Bay is really fun because the water face here is very still, there’s no wave, it’s great surfing the boat on the water!

6. Cooking Class – How to make Vietnamese food

On the second day morning of Halong Bay Overnight Cruise tour, I have experience the cooking class. This is the last and most memorable experience during the trip. The staff on the cruise will guide tourists how to make nem (fried meat roll) – one of the typical dishes of Vietnamese cuisine.

People seem very excited about this experience. Due to I am a Vietnamese people and being busy with taking pictures, so I do not take part in this activity. But I like the idea of this service. Tourists will have the beautiful and memorable memory of Halong Bay Overnight Cruise, about Vietnam.

Conclusion

This trip is a beautiful memory of mine about Ha Long Bay. Previously, I think Ha Long Bay has nothing attractive, I had traveled Cat Ba, Lan Ha Bay in Cat Ba is also very beautiful. I think Ha Long is very messy, as a famous tourist site so the travel services here getting commercialized. There is nothing new here.

So, I never thought I will take travel to Ha Long Bay. But after this trip, I have changed my mind about Ha Long Bay. Somewhere, there are still exciting experiences. Somewhere, there is still someone who know how to help others feel, enjoy and preserve wonders without thinking about developing – exploiting it thoroughly.
