Vietnam is a popular destination for travelers, and Halong Bay is often a highlight. Unfortunately, for active travelers, there's discouraging news. Halong Management Board has issued a new regulation that goes into effect April 1 banning kayaking activities in both Halong Bay & Bai Tu Long Bay. Both day-cruises and overnight cruises are affected by the ban.
We are advised that this ban is being appealed by a number of groups. The appeals process may take a week, and we hope it can be reversed.
In the meantime, there are other ways to enjoy an overnight junk cruise in Halong Bay, and we are happy to arrange trips to Vietnam to help you experience this beautiful country.
