So you are thinking of what to do on your next holiday to Vietnam? Try Halong Bay cruising. The experience of cruising in the calm bay, seeing stunningly beautiful rock formations, kayaking to hidden lagoons and dinning in caves is a unique experience in your Vietnam holiday. If you are not sure why you should take a cruise, here are seven great reasons to do so.

Reason #1: The memorable cruising experience

The cruise itself is quite an experience for a lifetime. On a wooden junk equipped with modern tools, you will visit exotic caves, fishing villages, limestone karsts and many more. Enjoy a stay in comfortable cabins and join social activities on board including partying, cooking classes and Tai Chi exercise.

Reason #2: Great value for your money

The best reason is: a Halong bay cruise gives you more bang for your buck. The cruise package includes almost everything from seafood, lodgings, activities, entertainment and transportation between Hanoi and Halong Bay. All you have to pay for are personal expenses such as laundry, spa services, drinks or tips.  For example, from just $165, you will stay in a single cabin on board the deluxe Dragon Pearl Junk for 2 days 1 night.  

Reason #3: Halong bay cruise junks have everything you need

All junks have almost everything you will need for an unforgettable experience. There is a range of drinks for you to select. Need some entertainment on board? You can watch a movie in the indoor cinema, lounge on the sun deck, exercise at the gym, attend fitness classes, learn some cooking techniques, or enjoy a spa. If you feel like taking a swim, plunge into the bay from the sundeck!

Reason #5: Great meals

The delicious seafood meals are there waiting for you after you’ve explored caves or lagoons. Take the opportunity to enjoy a unique experience of dining in a cave in the middle of the Bay! Or taste great BBQ seafood on a private small beach. 

Reason #6: What is there for children?
