Halong Bay Cruise and Hotel Blog - Paradise Vietnam

Luxury tourism is on the up in Vietnam, and Halong Bay is set to see a big change in the way that it is discovered and explored by visitors. Halong Bay luxury cruises are certainly the way forward, and here is why that is a good thing… 

ParadiseVietnam_Paradise-Peak-Cruise What do you think are the reasons to go for a luxury cruise in Halong?

  1. This is a once-in-a-lifetime trip (for most)

Most people will visit Halong Bay just once, and this is one of the world’s great natural beauties, so it is worth paying that little bit extra to make the most of it. If you decide to save some money and go with one of the cheaper operators, you could end up having a less than satisfactory experience which would more than tarnish your Halong Bay experience.

  1. It is better for the environment

Halong Bay Cruise and Hotel Blog - Paradise Vietnam

What shall we do for New Year’s Eve? is a question that is just as annoying when you’re travelling as it is when you’re at home. New Year’s Eve at home carries with it a certain amount of pressure to have a great time and the result is often somewhat… underwhelming. You’ve spent time with your family over Christmas and it’s time to hook up again with your friends and go crazy. But do you really want to do that after indulging yourself through Christmas?

When you’re away from home, things are sometimes even more difficult as you don’t know where to go or what to do, and the thought of getting caught up in some busy city fireworks surrounded by hordes of people is more than off-putting.

With only a negligible language barrier, I got on those trains a foreigner…
