FAQs

Q – Why type of people go on cruises?
A – Overnight Cruise in Halong Bay is becoming more and more popular all the time. It appeals to a very wide mix of young and old, couples, families and singles.

Q – When is the best time to visit Halong Bay?
A – Summer is a good time to cruise on Halong Bay but the best time of year is during the spring or autumn. Because the bay is situated in the northern part of the country, it can get colder in the fall and winter, and though you won't see extremes such as blizzards, it's still a lousy place to be when it gets cold.
Tip: You should bring a swim suit with you, night's swim in the phosphorescent water is also very nice (must be before your drinks)

Only some of the routes that the junks cruise can be close to open sea that the junk was swinging up and down. But once the junk was surrounded by Halong Bay unique limestone islands, it became stable again.
Seasickness is not common on larger cruise ships as they are equipped with stabilizers designed to minimize the feeling of movement.

Tip: When the junk gets swinging, do not walk around on boat to avoid seasick.
