Destinations of Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay in the Cat Archipelago
When Is The Best Time to Visit?
Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay can be visited all year round. The best time to visit is September to April. Expect hot weather and some tropical rain in the summer from May to August, but the sun and blue skies reappear after the rain before a magical sunset and the moon rising high into the night sky. Be a King for a night with us on board Emperor Cruises where our team ensures you enjoy every experience whatever the weather conditions.
How to Get There?
Self-drive car hire is not available for short-term visitors to Vietnam so most travelers to Halong Bay usually book a cruise package, which includes a private car with chauffeur driver or shuttle bus (3,5 hours). Helicopter or seaplane transfers are also available to the bay from Hanoi (1hour).
To ensure total comfort on your journey from Hanoi, we offer a daily limousine transfer service for pick-up and drop-off services from your hotel in Hanoi or Halong city.
Where is it?
The best way to appreciate this magical scenery is from our Lux Cruises, cruising between karst cliffs which loom up like fairytale castles, complete with rocky spires and hidden caves.
Our cruises operate in Halong Bay & Lan Ha Bay on a daily basis and Halong Bay on a 2- night program and, whether you choose the day trip or overnight option, we ensure your experiences are exclusive, all inclusive, intimate, memorable and safe.
What are the cruising options?
In Bai Tu Long Bay we operate one-day cruises, two-day cruises and the option of cruising both Lan Ha Bay and Halong Bay in a three-day program. Party cruises and private charters are available upon request.
