Insider Tip: How to Avoid the Crowds at Ha Long Bay

February 4, 2015 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , ,

Vietnam ‘s popularity as a travel destination is growing in quantum leaps every year. Travelers, curious about this exceptional destination, are interested to reach this corner of Southeast Asia. The entire world is ready to leap into a Vietnamese adventure.

As a result, those of us in the travel industry, in trying to provide our guests a unique and exclusive holiday, are becoming concerned about crowding. For example, Ha Long Bay in North Vietnam is a very popular destination requested on every itinerary to Vietnam, it’s even on the list of seven new wonders of nature! One of the most beautiful areas in all of Southeast Asia, Halong Bay’s picturesque emerald green water and karst topography exemplify the natural essence of Vietnam. However, this beautiful body of water is being overrun with unchecked crowding and is losing its unspoiled authenticity.

Our challenge as travel experts is to avoid this spectacle and, in this case, find alternatives where travelers can still experience the thrill of this natural wonder, but in a more discreet location. Discover Bai Tu Long or Lan Ha Bay, both part of the Halong Bay World Heritage Site, and equally as breathtaking as Ha Long.

Cruising through these quieter bays is a completely different experience. There are no other tourist boats on the horizon. The views of the panoramic seascape and limestone pillars are still what your travelers expect. Despite the popular interest in Ha Long Bay, our job is to recommend these other options. Sharing our knowledge and passion for quality destinations are key factors in this industry where success is measured by delivering unforgettable trips and ensuring extraordinary experiences.
