Vietnam Escape Tours will list for you some innovations of the newest Halong Bay cruises, which have been developing since the first days of tourism.
The first thing we should mention is the exterior of the ships. Newly built cruise ships have a more elegant design, steel structure and higher quality engine. The cabins are the point to distinguish one cruise from another. New cruises of Halong Bay tend to have a more spacious cabin with modern facility, unique design, wooden floor and a luxurious bathroom. The furniture inside is comfortable and cozy, making customers feel like being home. Moreover, the floor-to-ceiling window provides the best view from your bed to the bay.
The upgraded engine is also the point that makes the new ships of Halong Bay more attractive to visitors. The noisy and polluting engine is replaced with a sleek, quiet and more efficient one. The tranquility brought by this new engine will make your time of the cruises in Halong Bay more poetic. No more worry about the loud engine keeping you up on your trip.
More safety measures equipped on cruise mean that you will have a worry-free and secure trip. The new regulations of Halong Bay Management Board require that all ships must feature fire extinguisher, fire hose, life jackets and medically trained crew members. Knowing that you are taking a secure ship, you will enjoy more of your Halong Bay Cruise trip.
Along with the factors above, the Halong Bay newest cruises also feature several more modern amenities for customers, such as air-conditioner, hairdryer, in-room safe box, television, electronic key card system or strong Wi-Fi in all rooms.
Some other Halong Bay Luxury Cruises even have Jacuzzi in each room, heated floor, bathtub, gym, sauna, swimming pool or mini-golf playing area.
Up to now, there are 59 discovered caves in Halong Bay, but the experts believe that there are more of them waiting to be found. The caves play an important role in the ecosystem of Halong Bay and they are very worth visiting. Some most famous caves are Sung Sot Cave (Surprising Cave), Dau Go Cave, Trung Nu Cave (Virgin Cave) or Thien Cung Cave (Paradise Cave). While Thien Cung Cave is famous for its mysterious story of how it formed, Sung Sot Cave is known for its beauty with two chambers of 30 meters inside. As a result, these caves receive a large number of tourists every day. However, don't be put off by the crowd, these destinations are must-see during your trip with Halong Bay New Cruises.
Cat Ba Island is the biggest island in the Halong Bay region and it’s home to many animals and plants. The beaches on Cat Ba Island are perfect for swimming, sunbathing or relaxing. This island also appeared in the blockbuster movie Kong: Skull Island with amazing scenes. Coming here, you can rent a bike to cycle around, explore the beautiful spots and taste some home-cooked lunch of the villages here.
If you love adventure, you can come to Cat Ba National Park which has a very rich biodiversity. Trekking through the jungle to see the wildlife and plants here is a very good idea. One of the animal that is very famous here is the white-headed langue – one of the most endangered animals in the world and now can only be found on Cat Ba Island. Hiking up the mountains, tourists will get a fantastic view of the thick forest and valley stretching to miles away. This spot is only provided on a 3-day cruise in Halong Bay only so you should consider carefully and ask your travel consultant before picking one of the Halong Bay Newest Cruises.
Since the big new ships of Halong Bay can’t reach some narrow channels, kayaking is the most favorite way to explore these areas. You will have a chance to paddle through the tunnels, the underwater caves to access the secret hidden lagoons. You will see the emerald water, enormous limestone mountains and a tranquil atmosphere. Some best places to realize this activity are Tuan Chau, Bai Chay, Ti Top Island or Tra Co.
The floating villages have existed from hundred years ago in Halong Bay, since the fishermen want to sell their catch after returning from the year. They built these villages and live on it, it became their home and way to survive. Up to now, there are only a few villages left and some are public for tourists such as Vung Vieng, Cua Van or Cong Dam Fishing Village. They represent the life of traditional Vietnamese fishermen and their communities surrounded by the ocean. This spot is a highlight activity in most cruises’ itinerary.
