Address: Halong Bay 180000, Vietnam
Description:

Bai Tu Long Bay is the name of an area located in the east of Halong Bay Vietnam. Although it shares many similar geological characters with Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay is considered as off the beaten tourist track with many deserted and pristine beaches, no less impressive karst mountains. The Bay has a rich biodiversity with two ecosystems: a tropical, moist, evergreen rainforest ecosystem; and a marine and coastal ecosystem. The area has scarcely seen any tourist development. A large number of guests, through online research, wish to visit the Bai Tu Long Bay because it is much less crowded than Halong Bay. The only disadvantage is that it does not have many grottos. The nearest place for a visit (Vung Vieng Fishing village) is at around 20 km from tourist port.

If you can tour Bai Tu Long Bay, it is well worth it. It is peaceful and quiet, all the things that Ha Long Bay to the south is not. It is the real Ha Long Bay - just as beautiful but much less traveled and therefore very enjoyable

I've not been Ha Long Bay, so I don't know if Bai Tu Long is smaller or has nothing to see compared to Ha Long. However, for me, the scenery was good enough and I liked the slow atmosphere.

Unlike the touristy spots of Halong Bay, this is the less crowded area to see panoramic views of the bay that are breathtaking and spectacular all rolled into one.

I found Bai Tu Long is more interesting to visit as there are so many little islands without names. Boat cruise through this area is just amazing
