4.6
#3 of 14 in Parks in Halong Bay
Travel off the beaten path for quiet beaches and dramatic karst mountains at Bai Tu Long Bay. This attraction is similar to Halong Bay, but is much less crowded because it is less well-known among tourists. Many of its beaches are empty, which make this site an ideal spot for a day trip. Though it doesn't have as many grottos as other nearby beaches, it is rich in biodiversity, limestone cliffs, and a vibrant coastal ecosystem.

  • Gorgeous and unspoiled, not crowded at all. Definitely recommend seeing Bai Tu Long Bay in Halong Bay as you'll barely run into too many other boats.  more »

  • Beautiful bay, very quiet compared to Ha Long Bay and just as scenic, although the small beaches were somewhat dirty, so we couldn't get a good swim until we got to the day boat, after kayaking. We visited it the second day of our 3 days and 2 nights cruise to Ha Long Bay. We only saw two other day boats along or nearby, which made the experience very relaxed. The kayaking was a bit harder than the first day in the fishing village, due to the waves and more open waters, but had some incredible views.
  • Smaller scale & less visitors-- but spectacular! This Bay, with its 40 "islands/Karsts", is near the better know and much larger Ha Long Bay. Its "National Park" has been designated an "Asian Heritage attraction" ... and, is ranked as the #1 attraction in the Ha Long Bay region, and, has been awarded TripAdvisor's "Certificate of Excellence". It is much less crowded than Ha long Bay--- and is not as "overpowering"!! "Experienced Travellers" find that, while it is "off the beaten track" it is every bit as beautiful! Its definitely very worthwhile for those who appreciate the nature and serenity! I hope that this Review has been helpful!
