Lan Ha Bay is truly a sublime masterpiece of nature in Vietnam, so much so that American actor Leonardo DiCaprio called on all tourists to take care and reduce their environmental impact while visiting the bay in order to maintain this idyllic destination.
A far cry from its famous neighbour – Ha Long Bay, Lan Ha Bay is a lesser-travelled destination. However, the scenic bay has gradually gained popularity thanks to its untouched and magnificent natural beauty. Lan Ha Bay fascinates travellers with more than 400 karst islands and limestone rocks scattered around the area. Lan Ha Bay is carpeted in a terrific shade of green due to a vast array of forested islands and thriving cliffs.
Lan Ha Bay has both domestic and foreign travellers falling head over heels with its unspoilt scenery and unprecedented tranquillity. You will be drawn to the natural glamour and magnificence of the towering cliffs standing out against the calm waters at Luon Cave, Turtle Islet or Bell Island. Take a cruise along the bay, its crystal-clear emerald waters, colourful coral reefs and flocks of gorgeous fish will blow your mind. This picturesque bay also features an amazing stretch of creamy-white sand. A rich and mesmerising blend, it is a perfect haven for every vacationer.
If you want to appreciate the awe-inspiring beauty of Vietnam’s Lan Ha Bay, taking a kayak is a fantastic option to marvel at the huge rock formations and mystic caves. Sitting on a boat whilst enjoying the bustle-free ambience, refreshing waters, sparkling sunshine and the gentle breeze will allow you to escape the humdrum mundanity of daily life. Get the most out of your trip with a whole host of water activities, for instance, diving, fishing, swimming or strolling along the sun-dappled beaches.
Lan Ha Bay not only provides panoramic views of spectacular nature but also allows you to access many appealing destinations such as the Cua Van Fishing Village, the Monkey Island and the option to savour a diversity of delicious seafood. Your trip to the epic bay would be not complete without staying overnight on a cruise ship or camping on the sandy beach. Satisfy your cosmopolitan passion and appreciate the fascinating charm of Vietnam.
The captivating bay boasts an unparalleled peaceful beauty all year round, making it a regularly-visited destination in Vietnam. As Lan Ha Bay is located in Northern Vietnam, between April and October is the best time for a trip to this stunning bay to beat the summer heat. However, international tourists can pay a visit to Lan Ha Bay from November to March to get a glimpse of its tranquillity and peace. Summer is almost here, the staggering landscapes, thrilling experiences and delectable seafood are awaiting your discovery in Lan Ha Bay.
