Owner description: Bai Tu Long Bay is the name of an area located in the east of Halong Bay Vietnam. Although it shares many similar geological characters with Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay is considered as off the beaten tourist track with many deserted and pristine beaches, no less impressive karst mountains. The Bay has a rich biodiversity with two ecosystems: a tropical, moist, evergreen rainforest ecosystem; and a marine and coastal ecosystem. The area has scarcely seen any tourist development. A large number of guests, through online research, wish to visit the Bai Tu Long Bay because it is much less crowded than Halong Bay. The only disadvantage is that it does not have many grottos. The nearest place for a visit (Vung Vieng Fishing village) is at around 20 km from tourist port.

Wow! We cruised through this beautiful bay and so serene and tranquil. The views are stunning. If you feel up to it go kayaking and get slower to the little islands. The whole area is like floating in a dream. It was also great just relaxing on the bed and watching the view float by through the window.

Not as spectacular as I expected - but then our choice of cruise was a let down so maybe this detracted us from the journey.

This is the place to go to see Halong Bay without all the boats and tourists. It is only sailed by the Indochina Junk company so make sure you do your research when picking a cruise line. The Dragon Legend is by far the best one out there. Highly recommend!!

The backdrop of Ha Long Bay was exceptional, this review isn’t about that. This is about the boat and the blatant dishonesty of the director. If you’re promised that it’s all inclusive, it’s not. You ay for everything except the food. We were told by Mr. Johnny Tien that it was all inclusive. It was a lie. The boat was extremely run down and listed to the starboard side drastically. The bilge pump ran constantly and vibrated the entire boat( I spent 7 years in the US Navy) and this kept me awake. Do your self a favor and up grade.
