FAQs

Normally, the distance from Hanoi to Halong Bay is about 170 km. Shuttle Bus takes you around 3.5 hours, included haft-hour for break time from Hanoi to Halong Bay. If you go by private car, it takes around 3 hours.

On the other hand, there is another route which only takes you about 2.5 hours for travelling to Halong Bay. You can hire a car or buy a ticket of a VIP bus to travel from Hanoi city centre to Halong Bay through the new Hanoi - Hai Phong highway, which shortens the distance between Hanoi - Halong to about more than 150km.

However, there will be a fee for the new highway which is about 6.5 USD/turn/car and that is the reason why the price for transportation through this new route is a little bit higher than the old one.

Activities you can take part in during within a Cruise program is: Movie Night, Board Games, visiting Floating village, go fishing, cooking class, kayaking or swimming, biking, climbing… It depends on each cruise and the length of Cruise program as 02 days or 03 days.
