Before you go

  • Search all the basic and necessary information about Halong Bay.

It is advised for parents to make a request to be collected first so that you can pick the seat where your kids can feel comfortable at its best, and to be dropped first once being back in Hanoi as it would take about 3.5 hours on bus from Hanoi to Halong. For more convenience, it is recommended to book a private car transfer beforehand for your whole family. And as they might feel hungry during the transfer, bring with you some of your childrens’ favourite snacks. Jasmine cruise

It is important to define what kind of travel you like. It is a good idea to visit Halong Bay center, where most of boats are cruising every day if you want a bustling atmosphere. Meanwhile Bai Tu Long Bay, which is a part of Halong archipelago but less crowded with boats, is an ideal choice for the family wanting a calm bay to relax. In Bai Tu Long, the bay is not congested, the water is cleaner, the beaches are peaceful and secluded and the villages are more authentic.

Don’t worry if you want your children to stay in the same cabin or at least in connecting cabins. There are many boats having connecting rooms or large family suites. Consider it when you are booking.

  • Go over all the basic safety information, rules, procedures and important emergency information, for instance: what to do in case of tour cancellation. For more information, contact your tourist company.

  • Even when you have kids going with, travel light. Pack enough, only essentials stuff.
  • Do you know that if traveling anywhere outside of your country, children of all ages need a current, valid passport or visa? Then, remember to prepare it for them.
  • Don’t try to cram too much into your itinerary. Plan for a slower pace than you usually travel as a couple or alone. The less you plan that you have to come to see and explore, the more entertaining and stress-free your trip will be.
  • If your children want to play with sands on the beach, don’t forget to bring a bucket and shovel for building sandcastles.
  • Bring along a basic first aid kit and insect repellents.
