Vietnam is located in the Torrid Zone. Thus, it is impossible to describe “Vietnamese climate” at once: it goes from glacial winters in Northern Mountains, to continuous heat in the Mekong Delta.

Upfront, there aren’t any bad months for a tour to Halong Bay.  Halong cruises deserve many beautiful and different surprising types of scenery each time of the year.

Let’s focus on the North. Meteorologists, blogs and websites will tell you Vietnam is rhythmed by two seasons: spring and winter monsoons. Vietnamese, however, will tell you there are four seasons in the North. And they are right.

The winter monsoon brings cold and humidity to all regions above Nha Trang, while spring monsoon comes with heat and humidity, (except for areas sheltered by mountains).

February and March usually have persistent, light and drizzling rain. It doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy your Halong Bay cruise, scenery tends to become unreal, mystical, with a morning fog that transforms the bay in a ghost sea town.

Fairy tale wedding anniversary on Bhaya Legend

This Tuesday, Bhaya staff were so happy and delighted to receive one of our guests’ letter who took a charter cruise tour on Bhaya Legend, one of our vessels on Halong Bay.

Bhaya would like to express our sincere thanks to Mrs. Marith Kull, her husband and children who shared with us very nice moments of their 5th wedding anniversary on our cruise. Below is part of the letter she wrote to us:

“… I would also like to tremendously thank the crew of Bhaya Cruises Legend I. Because of them the cruise was most enjoyable. We were celebrating our anniversary with our children Evan and Mia ages 3 and 1, and to my surprise most of the crew members indicated that they had young children of their own which answered why they were so natural amongst them. Although we did not ask for our children to be taken care of by the crew, each took aside a couple of minutes to look after them so Andrew and I could enjoy a meal or relax and enjoy the wonderful view that Halong Bay has to offer.Vu our waitress in particular, from time to timewould pop out of nowhere and wipe down the kids faces and hands with a fresh new towel. Each member went out of their way as parents themselves to make our trip along with the children stress free.

Our Cruise Manager Lai was exceptional at making us feel at home on the boat and on the individualized tours. Our children especially our son Evan, will remember this trip and often still talks about Lai. We were quite sad leaving because we saw the sadness on our children’s faces and Evan had asked us why Lai was not coming home with us as he was use to Lai being there the last 2 days.

The Captain and other crew members were all very welcoming.  The Chef’s  food was delicious each time. We thoroughly enjoyed the unique dinner in the cave, and the only thing that was missing was music which was fixed right away as one of the crew members pulled out his cell phone and played a lovely Vietnamese wedding song. We definitely felt like king and queen on our special trip and the boat cruise turned out to be a fairy tale in so many ways thanks to the staff.

I hope to return one day and take the cruise all over again as it has left me very fond memories…”

Tai Chi on Halong Bay with Bhaya Cruises | Way to your inner peace

Tai Chi is an outstanding gem of traditional Chinese culture that is valuable in promoting health, developing combat and self-defense skills, and improving concentration and overall well-being. This ancient art uses gentle flowing movements to reduce the stress of today’s busy lifestyles.

Tai Chi emphasizes complete relaxation, and is essentially a form of meditation, or what has been called “meditation in motion.” Though it is soft, slow, and flowing, the movements are executed precisely.

“Whoever practices Tai Chi regularly will in time gain the suppleness of a child,
the strength of a lion, and the peace of mind of a sage.”

– Old Saying –

Morning Tai Chi class on Halong Bay

Tai Chi on Halong Bay – A great experience ever!

One of the most important points to Tai Chi practice is the relaxation of your mind and body. Choosing a quiet time and tranquil place with open fresh air is a great factor to help induce the body into a balanced and meditative state.

On a Bhaya cruise, we mark the morning Tai Chi class as one of our Halong Bay cruise tour’s highlights. Early in the morning of the 2nd and/or 3rd day of the tour, we offer you a Tai Chi class on the sundeck of our vessel. Our experienced Tai Chi master will instruct you to use the conscious mind to guide the movements and let it lead the body. This will develop your deep concentration to find your inner peace in harmony with nature. Early morning on Halong Bay is a perfect time as it is quiet and sunrise warms up your body. Enjoying the Bay’s outstanding scenic beauty of limestone islets rising from emerald waters will take your mind completely away from stress.

Tai Chi practice on Halong Bay with Bhaya Cruises is a great experience ever.

You will discover it yourself!
