About
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.

    Beautiful & peaceful Bai Tu Long Route
    We spent 2-day-1-night cruise on Renea cruise with Bai Tu Long Bay route. The route was less touristy than Halong or Lan Ha Bay route which we had visited. Actvities & food onboard were also good. We enjoyed every place we stopped by. We definitely recommend Renea Cruise with its Bai Tu Long Bay route for anyone who would like to visit Halong Bay

    Bai Tu Long is a beautiful area protected by hundreds of islands. The scenery is tranquil and out of this world. I have never seen anything quite like it. I highly recommend a longer 3-day - 2-night cruise to escape the massive crowds within Halong Bay.

    2 nights Cruise!
    We enjoyed our 2 night cruise on the Bai Tu Long bay. It's quite area. Scenery is amazing. We loved our cruise very much and will recommend you to do 2 night itinerary. It took us much time travelling from/to Hanoi for the tour. So you would have 2 full day on the cruise for 3 day itinerary.

    less crowd and quiet bay
    actually,i visited bai tu long bay in 2018 end of November,but that time i thought the bay i visited was ha lan bay,a mistake! recently i check the itinerary again, found that the actual bay i visited is here.so repost it,cuz dont know when will visit here again.this bay is more quieter, the view is quite similar to ha long bay, but the cave and fishing village we visited were different,less famous and not that marvellous. anyway,if you love less crowd bay,then bai tu long is your place.
