Ha Long Bay is one of the most beautiful and awe-inspiring places in all of Vietnam. With its emerald waters, limestone karsts and towering peaks, Ha Long Bay is a must-see destination for any traveler to Vietnam.

Compared to other places around the world with the same island vibes, would you say it is cheaper to stay at Ha Long Bay? I keep seeing people mention how much cheaper luxury stays are in Vietnam compared to other countries.

@freshcut based on the prices I have seen, it is a pretty affordable luxury stay but it is still not the kind of trip I would recommend to someone on a tight budget.

When it comes to the cost of staying in Ha Long Bay compared to other destinations with similar island vibes, I must say it offers a fantastic bang for your buck. You can find a range of accommodations to suit different budgets, making it a relatively affordable option for your island getaway. So, why break the bank when you can have a luxurious experience without emptying your wallet?

Such a beautiful place. I have been twice and even their most expensive places to stay are affordable for most people coming in from the US. I always recommend it.

I've been to Ha Long Bay, and I think this article is spot-on. I'd add that you should definitely bring a waterproof camera.

I like how many things you can do both in and by water in this location. You really get the most of Vietnam without having to travel far.

I'm glad you're enjoying your time in Ha Long Bay! Make sure to check out the caves while you're here- they're really something else!

Does Ha Long Bay have a lot of bugs? I have heard people complaining about it but I never actually looked into it. People tend to complain the most about mosquitoes since they carry disease. I know certain places of Vietnam are worse than others for those nasty buggers.

@weenie You will see more issues with them around water, this is true but this is stagnant water. This will be in central Vietnam by rivers, ponds, etc so you do not have to worry so much near the beaches.

I'm so glad I read this before my trip! I would have been so lost without a visa. And the ocean is so scary, I'm glad I know to be aware of the dangers!

You definitely need a visa before going to Vietnam and Ha Long Bay. The ocean can be dangerous if you're not careful.
