Know the safety information on the boat

I hope this is not a problem with the trip, but I heard about the accident a few years ago that killed 12 people. Since then, I have firmly believed that all boats have an escape hammer placed next to their bed. Make sure you know where the lifejacket is located so that it can be picked up when needed. And with a little caution when taking a kayak, do not change your route on your own!


If possible, conquer a mountain here. The view from the top of the mountain so majestic you can not imagine it! If you are in Cat Ba Island or Bai Tu Long Bay, do not miss the opportunity to climb the rocky mountains. I wish I had more time to conquer some more mountain peaks.

If you are in Halong Bay tours one night, consider climbing at least once or twice depends on your time.
