There are probably hundreds of thousands of blogs and websites that are available on the internet about Halong Bay. Topics vary from things to do in Halong Bay to the best time to go to Halong Bay, for anyone going to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, it can be overwhelming when doing some research about the destination. And it even gets harder once you’ve arrived to the point where you should make the decision of doing either an overnight cruise or a 3-day cruise.
And for us to make your lives easier and stress-free, we’ve listed down 7 of the best reasons why you should opt to stay longer days in world-renowned Halong Bay.
3. Relax as if you’re already retired
Imagine waking up to a room and the first thing you see is the sun rising across from your glass door while watching it move upwards behind the silhouettes of the rock formations on the horizon. You get out of your bed, sit down by the balcony as you watch the sunrise, catch the breeze of fresh air on your face coming from the bay while sipping your first hot cup of coffee. Sounds unreal? No, this is your typical morning on a Halong Bay cruise.
6. Explore more areas on the bay
The Gulf of Tonkin, the area that covers the three major bays, Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay, and Lan Ha Bay, has an area that cannot be explored within a span of two days, which is what almost 90 percent of the cruise companies offer. With each area having its own specific feel and personality to it, going on a 3 Day Halong Bay cruise is the best option for those who don’t wish to follow the majority’s option and choose to go further, and in return, get a chance to discover more of Halong Bay.
