Lan Ha bay- Reviews on TripAdvisor

Amazing views, a better choice

There's nothing which I can't include except this location must be seen if the north is visited by you. It it more beautiful and not touristy than Halong bay.
The tour was agent set up and although the 5 hour, drive there was uneasy the cruise ship as well as the tour itself definitely changed all of that disappear within minutes.

The trip broke up at the fishing village and we had been rowed into 2 of the caves to view the lagoons then taken to probably the largest cave which is accessible - with stalactites and lights and mites etc and also our manual showed us the various shapes in the rock.
Highly recommend Lan Ha Bay for everyone!

I can't believe it is Halong Bay:

Everybody knows and wants to go Halong bay, but I can assure you tha Lan Ha bay is as beautiful and interesting as Halong bay and yet less crowded!
So you can skip the touristic Halong bay but choose Lan Ha bay to spend your full day.

Amazing experiece --great hidden gem for kayaking

We never thought Lan Ha bay has such beautiful caves for kayaking as also many secluded beaches and we had a great time. We kayaked through various caves to see secret lagoons and were lucky to see a group of the famous Cat Ba langurs. Did swimming and jumping into the warm water in Lang Ha bay, all were great experice. We had quoted snorkling not much to see but we highly recommend to come here instead of visiting Ha Long bay which is much more expensive and crowded.

Better than the busy Ha Long bay!
We went on a boat trip through Lan Ha Bay and its floating villages. Such a beautiful and off the beaten paths to compare to Ha Long bay. Lan Ha bay has a lots of caves and floating villages to explore on kayak which we did and it was excellent. Its geology and formation are the shame as Ha Long bay ( a thousand of karst limestone towers and you don't have to be rushed with other boats. Would come back and do another trip to Lan Ha bay !
