Getting around Halong Bay

HomeHalong Travel Guides → Getting around Halong Bay

If tourists are on the mainland, you can obviously get around on the roads. When renting a car, you should ask directions and try to know some Vietnamese; otherwise you will have a very hard time understanding where to go. In many cases, tourists will have guides to help them around, especially if we don't speak Vietnamese.

If tourists want to get around in the bay, we will have to rent a junk, also known as a boat. It is not difficult to rent a whole boat for yourself or you want to share with plenty of other travellers. The official prices are ridiculously reasonable at 30, 000/40, 000VND for a four-/six-hour cruise. Whole boats can be chartered starting from 100, 000/140, 000/160, 000/220, 000VND per hour for a no-star/1-star/2-star/3-star boat respectively – an affordable indulgence for those wanting some privacy.
