Bai Tu Long Bay, located at a mere 30 km from Halong Bay is its sister city in every sense. The untouched limestone and karst rocks remind you of Ha Long before the tourists overran it. The bay spans a vast expanse of oceans with numerous islands made of limestone karst. The area is picturesque and instills a sense of calmness in you.
Shimmering waters and striking karst cliffs of the mesmerising Bai Tu Long Bay is compounded by the lack of crowds and junk boats in the area. Bai Tu Long Bay may be off the beaten track, but it offers a sense of tranquillity that is unparalleled. This UNESCO World Heritage site is dominated mainly by the lush Bai Tu Long national park that serves as an ideal location for trekking, bird-watching and butterfly hunting. Other jewels of Bai Tu long Bay include Van Don Island - the bay's largest and most visited island, the traditional fishing village of Vung Vien, the white sand beaches of Quan Lan Island and the remote, serene Co To Island. Some typical activities include Kayaking, Cave exploration, Trekking, Banana Boating and even just sitting on the beach and relaxing.
