This is the destination many of us dream of when visiting Vietnam: an unclouded ocean horizon broken only by thousands of jade-green islets jutting out of crystal-blue water. Forming a storybook landscape of ethereal beauty, it’s no wonder Halong Bay has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On our private Halong Bay tours, you’ll float through this picture-postcard landscape exactly the way you want—whether on a private vessel, a luxury cruise, an adventurous overnight, or a multi-day excursion that lets you soak in the jaw-dropping scenery. Explore a phantasmagoric cave on the way, or go kayaking on the bay’s calm waters. Stroll on a strip of hidden beach hand-in- hand with your loved one or watch the sunrise from the deck of your ship as you sail among limestone giants. Create your own tailor-made Halong Bay trip with us and experience the freedom of discovering one of Vietnam’s brightest gems your way.

Our honeymoon experience traveling through beautiful Vietnam was unforgettable – and I couldn’t recommend Backyard Travel highly enough. All logistics were planned perfectly so all we had to do was show up and everything was taken care of. The tour guides were personable, knowledgeable and flexible to our preferences. I would recommend a trip like this for anyone looking for a plug-and-play trip to Asia.

Our one week tour if Vietnam was another fantastic vacation by Backyard travel. The selected guides were well matched for our family with young children. Our children loved the mix of activities and the choice of hotels. So many unforgettable experiences in such a short time!

Don?t lie about the mausoleum and then have your tour guide try to talk us out of it. Wasted one whole house of my tour. Waste of money.

What’s Special about Halong Bay?

This spectacularly picturesque bay is not only a World Heritage Site rich with legends but also a delight for nature lovers and adventurers. You’re free to explore the turquoise waters by traditional junk, luxury cruiser or kayak. Jump off the sundeck into the water or explore hidden beaches inside a limestone islet. There’s more than meets the eye on a private Halong Bay tour.


The people of Halong City and nearby Cam Pha Town are fiercely proud of Halong Bay, and rightfully so. They strive to keep the bay and its islands pristine, despite high tourist demand.


Although Halong Bay can be considered a year-round destination, the best conditions span from September to November and March to May. July and August see some rainstorms, but they usually die down in a few days.


Our private Halong Bay tours offer a different kind of entertainment: be dazzled by a sunset illuminating the limestone islets while you enjoy a drink on the deck of your boat. It doesn’t get any better than this.


Of the 2,000 islands, about 40 are inhabited. Many of the distinctively shaped islets have whimsical names—such as Monkey, Elephant, and Fighting Cock—given by the imaginative locals.


Vietnamese is the most commonly spoken language among locals. Some residents speak French, while English and Chinese are usually spoken in tourist centers, attractions, and Halong Bay cruise vessels.


The lush Halong Bay area has been inhabited since the time of hunter-gatherers, which later gave rise to a vibrant seafaring culture. It has been the epicenter of great naval battles, rebuffing both Chinese and Mongol invasions.
