Cruising to Lan Ha Bay - New trend for Halong Bay Cruise
Located in the southern part of Ha Long Bay and east of Cat Ba Island, Lan Ha Bay is also known as "the Lost Heaven" because of its extremely wild beauty. With the wild and natural beauty, Lan Ha Bay is compared as the second Ha Long Bay in the North of Vietnam.
Why do Lan Ha Bay become a NEW TREND?
Well, let me point out some reasons that I’m sure will make you like this Bay.
1. Short transfer
It only takes you about 2 hours from your hotel in Hanoi to Got Ferry where the cruises disembark from. Using highway from Hanoi to Haiphong to reach the Lan Ha Bay's cruise means it will be faster and can avoid the traffic jam and this will benefit the tourists who have car sickness. In stead of 04 driving-hour with traditional path from Hanoi – Halong, now it only take 2 hour driving with luxury car experience and more comfortable on a massage chair. Besides, the pick up time from the bus will be 09:00 a.m which means you may have more time for your sleep and breakfast instead of waking up early in the morning and prepare before 07:30 a.m for a Halong Bay cruise.
2. Less Touristy
Most of Cruises visit Lan Ha Bay are luxury cruises so it will not be as crowded as in Halong Bay. I am sure that you do not like seeing the bay full of tourists and you will see a lot of people at every attractions here. For a simple example, if you can find 100 cruises at Halong Bay, you will only see about 10 cruises at Lan Ha Bay which means the number of the cruises in Halong Bay is much more than in Lan Ha Bay. And I guess nobody wants to visit an island to see the view of the bay but there are too many tourists or go sailing the kayak, visit the caves with so many boats there. Having less cruises with higher quality also means less tourists there and Lan Ha Bay totally can offer the tourists a new chance to admire the wide and spectacular scenery of 400 big and small islands with many interesting shapes. All the islands in Lan Ha Bay are covered with green trees even with the small islands.
3. The service and the quality of the luxury cruises over here are very good as well
