A cruise on Ha Long Bay is on everybody's must-see list of destinations in Vietnam. There is nothing quite like cruising the beautiful islands of Ha Long Bay on a junk, swimming, kayaking and visiting the various caves, grottoes and islands of the area. Most cruises depart from Ha Long city port or Cat Ba Island.

Our favourite option for a cruise is by private junk - not cheap, but it is an amazing experience to be cruising in a wooden private sailing junk (real sails!) with just your own family - you can visit smaller bays and beaches, and you get to moor overnight in a private spot, away from all the collective junks. That said, if you're travelling on your own or you enjoy meeting other travellers, it can be good fun to be on a collective boat.

Often there is no need to take the bus to Ha Long bay or Cat Ba Island if you book pre-arranged boat cruise in Hanoi City - the transport to Ha Long port (or Cat Ba) will be included in the price, and usually in a small minibus or similar. However, if you do decide to do it on your own and take the bus, you're in a good position to negotiate a great rate on a Halong cruise. It's about three hours drive to both Cat Ba and Ha Long.
