Fun for kids on an overnight cruise in Halong Bay

Traveling on a cruise boat for family trip seems more reveled to adults than their kids since cruising often means relaxing and enjoying a slow life. However, with the diversified biogeography, Halong Bay provides more interesting activities that may also attract children.

Family trip on Bhaya Classic Cruises Halong BayIn a Halong Bay cruise, you don’t have to worry about not having enough fun things to enjoy for a family trip. While adults prefer a peaceful vacation with lots of resting and being lazy, kids often look for more active things to do.

With their active nature, kids often couldn’t stay still in a limited space of a cabin, or even a cruise ship. A variety of activities that is well organized will help fill their schedule and keep them fun. What can keep your kids attracted in their free time? Check out some suggestion from Bhaya Classic team:

Have fun with our Head Chef

Bhaya Classic’s talented Head Chef is not only someone who takes superb care of all your meals (and sometimes weight) during the trip, but you will also meet him countless times in some on board activities.

Cooking demonstration - Spring roll in Bhaya Classic CruisesOn the first day, the Chef himself will teach you a really simple but authentic Vietnamese cooking demonstration. The dish, spring roll, is popular and delicious, yet super easy to make. Kids love playing with food, and even love it more if there’s something to actually eat after playing. Therefore, give them a chance to do what they are normally not allowed to do at home. This is one of the most favorite sessions of our tiny guests, especially the part when they get to eat what they have made. From now on, you can brag about being able to cook the authentic Vietnamese cuisine to your friends back home.

Water fun cannot be missed on a cruise trip

Sport activities in water are forever loved by kids. Cruising in one of the most beautiful bay in the world, you obviously shouldn’t miss any water activities offered by the operator. This is also an opportunity to enjoy the family’s participation and exchange some exciting memories with your children.

Fun-for-kid-in-Halong-Bay-Cruises-2Famous with the calm and peaceful water, kayaking and swimming in Halong Bay is especially safer for children. Share a kayak boat with one of your kids and let him/her take the lead in the front seat. For that you can always keep an eye on their safety, while still give them the feeling of completing the challenge themselves.

If you’re lucky enough to arrange a 3D2N trip, there will definitely some times to stop in one of Halong Bay’s white sand beaches. Surrounded by the legendary green limestone and karsts, the beach might not be huge but indeed lovely. Swimming nearby with the kids or just sunbathing lazily under the sun, or ask our staffs for some simple sport like tug or soccer.

The friendly staffs are always there for your kid

Relaxing will be so much easier when you can let your kids off doing whatever they want around the boat. Our staffs love children, and therefore, will always be around and keep an eye on the small guests. Sometimes they became best friends. And our friends often gave us so many surprises by innocent love or unexpected gifts sometimes.

Tips on booking cruise cabins for a family trip

Halong Bay is famous for being a popular destination for family trip as each generation may find their own activities and fun. Worrying about not being able to stay together in a room is no more a problem as the new trendy small boats have something special to offer and solve the question.Family trip in Halong BayQuiet and more privacy

New small cruises concept has become the latest trend in Halong Bay for travelers who want to spend a timid and quiet vacation in this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Operating on a small 5-7 cabin boat means only a maximum group of only 12 – 16 passengers will share the journey. No need to worry about the noisy crowd that may annoy your kids or elders! If lucky enough, you may get to share the boats with only 2-3 other families, who actually has the same vision of a cozy trip.

Deciding a suitable cabin type for your needs in a cruise trip is not simple in any circumstance, but choosing a perfect room for a family trip of 5-6 members with kids (and even elders) is even a tougher job. With limited space of a boat, can more than 2 people fit in 1 cabin? Is letting your 2 children sleep separatedly in another cabin safe or not? If not, should each of you accompany 1 kid and cannot spend time together?

Premium Balcony Cabin for family trip in Halong BayHalong Bay cannot carry on giant luxury ships with huge cabins like other destinations due to the special geographic formation. But nowadays, cruise boats have been onboard with more family-friendly facilities and services. One of which is the connecting cabins with at least 1 pair per boat.

With a connecting door that can be opened from both sides, you can choose to leave your members a little privacy or join them for a smooth time together.

The different charm of Halong Bay in winter and summer

While Halong Bay is often known by its sunny and sparkling image of a summer destination, the scenery of this UNESCO World Heritage Site in winter contains a totally different charm that stole the heart of many tourists around the world. This is the reason why Halong Bay attracts tourists year-round, no matter what season and weather it is.

Halong Bay in summerWhen researching to plan a Halong Bay trip, it is common that you are advised to travel in warm season to relish the scenery to the fullest. Halong Bay sparkles in the summer, with an intimate view of lush greenery and an ethereal yet unique charm created by nature. The destination will bring you such a typical summer vacation: sunshine, sea, sandy beach, cocktail on sundeck, tanning under the sun. But Halong Bay wouldn’t allow you to be that lazy. It’s summer time, it’s time for sport! Go out of the cruise for a kayak tour on water, or prepare yourself to be an explorer for a biking in Cat Ba Island. While enjoying the scene, sunbathing on a cruise’s sundeck and swimming in the water is something you will not want to miss. The World Heritage presents its most stunning view to you, which provides such a sweet escape from the winter on the other side of the Earth at the same time.

Sometimes it rains in the summer, but don’t worry because it usually doesn’t last long. After 15 minutes, weather will give you back the sun and the fun.

Most of the time, the extreme heat and humidity of Vietnam North in the summer tire out Western tourists on their visit to Halong Bay as they are often exposed to the sun and do a lot of physical activities. Winter may provide a totally different experience as the chilling weather keep you away from sweat and sticky clothes. Most Western tourists find it more comfortable traveling in winter.

Worry about the gloomy sea may let you down? You will have to change your mind when floating on a lightly foggy sea among enormous limestone and karsts, which gives off a fairytale-like feeling. Halong Bay turns into a mystical princess once the winter comes. “It feels like being lost in the enormousness of nature, which put you in another world separated from your daily life. Such a breath-taking experience!” – said one tourist, who just finished his cocktail on the cruise’s sundeck.

Even in winter, never leave Halong without immersing yourself on a luxury cruises. The legendary sunset and sunrise of the bay is covered in a mystery background that proves why it ranks among the top destination in Asia. Usually, the Bay is less crowded in this season. You will have the nature for yourself (well, other tourists on your cruise as well), revel in it, and live it to the fullest.

Bhaya Classic Cruises sundeck in Halong BayIf you’re visiting Halong in winter, don’t ever miss some trademark activity of the area like kayaking and biking in Cat Ba Island. Remember to bring some extra warm clothes as the weather outside will get chill and moisture cream to fight against the dryness. Kayaking in Halong Bay is safe in general, but you should still take double cautious in foggy weather and ensure to have all the safety equipment with you.

Another pleasure you may only find in winter is to enjoy a cup of hot coffee or tea on the cruise’s sundeck. Let the flow warm you up inside in a relaxing afternoon after a long day of exciting activities on water.

If you are planning a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Halong Bay in winter after reading this entry, I’m glad you have made the right decision. There are 2 months left until the summer heat visits the water of Halong Bay. Don’t waste your time!
