Depending on the boat you booked there are lots of different activities to do during your cruise trip. In most itineraries they include a visit to a cave. In the rocks and island of Halong Bay there are lots of hidden caves you can visit. Some of them you can even do a romantic dinner.
Other activities during a cruise are kayaking, were you will explore hidden lagoons that you can only reach by kayak. A cooking class introduction to learn about some local dishes. But you can also do rock climbing, swimming and a scenic flight over the bay.
The Mekong Delta is another famous cruise destination in Vietnam. In contrast to Halong Bay, you don’t have to do a cruise to see the Mekong Delta. But it is a very comfortable way of doing that. A luxuruous boat brings you over the river were you will dock several places to do activities, such as smaller boat trips through the small canals of the Mekong and visiting floating markets, doing a cooking class and biking through the countryside.
