Travel Guide 2022: Top 10 Best Things To Do In Halong Bay — Viet Nam
Halong Bay is one of the most famous places in Vietnam and consists of a series of impressive limestone islands that are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. There are around 2000 islands in the bay and many of them are with beautiful lush vegetation, making them ideal for walking. Many of the islands are also the home of caves. The best thing to do in Halong Bay is taking a cruise, where you can see these islands up close and take trips to caves and floating villages. 5 reasons to visit Halong Bay Take a fantastic cruise through the beautiful landscape. Do an adventurous activity such as kayaking or rock climbing. View the local life in the floating villages. Explore different islands with viewpoints and caves. Be romantic with a luxury cruise, spa and dining in a cave. 10 best things to do in Halong Bay The thousands of islands and floating villages already make an unforgettable experience, but there is more to see and do at Halong Bay. Most of these sights are included with the cruise that you book. Therefore, pay attention to which cruise you book. Below you can read the best things to do at Halong Bay. 1. Cruise through Halong Bay The best thing to do in Halong Bay is no surprise; a cruise. There are hundreds of boats, from very small to large, from luxury to cheap and from day boats to multi-day boats. So no matter what kind of traveler you are, there is always a cruise in Halong that suits you. The water in the bay is very calm, so you don’t have to worry about waves and getting seasick. You will also not get bored quickly, because there are many activities available during the boat trip. You can kayak, swim (in the right period), explore caves, visit floating villages and take walks on the larger islands. If you prefer to relax at the end of your active Vietnam vacation, you can simply stay on the cruise to admire the beautiful landscape of uninhabited islands and karstones jutting out of the water. Tip: With so many boats cruising the bay, it can be a bit overwhelming to find a cruise that suits you best. So take a look at the selections we have made of the best Halong Bay cruises divided into categories 2. Scenic flight over the bay The coolest way to see how magnificent this UNSECO sight is, is taking a scenic flight in Halong Bay. It is perfect for when you want to see the bay in a short time or when it fits your budget you can also combine it with a cruise. The flights last 25 minutes and start from the water in Halong Ciy by seaplane. Taking off from the water and landing alone is a great experience, but the real highlight is of course when you fly above the islands and rocks. It is possible to take pictures during the flight with a camera or mobile, so that you can capture this special experience. 3. Kayaking From a cruise you can admire the landscape perfectly, but with a kayak you can get to places that boats cannot reach. It is also a wonderful activity on the water, with little current and no waves. For that reason, kayaking is one of the best things to do in Halong Bay. There are caves that you can paddle through, ending up in a completely hidden part of the bay. You can also visit various beaches with a kayak. Almost all cruise boats, from day trips to multi-day trips, have included this activity in their travel program. If you don’t feel like it or it is raining, you can also choose to skip kayaking. 4. Floating fishing villages In Vietnam they love seafood. In order to meet the high demand for these sea delicacies, you will see fishing boats all along the coast. Because the water in Halong Bay is so still, this is also a place where floating fishing villages have sprung up. Here people literally live and work on the water. Many of the floating platformers are used for fish and shellfish farming. It is a unique experience to visit a floating village where you can see how the people work here and sometimes live for days. 5. Relax on beaches Despite the fact that Halong Bay consists of hundreds of islands off the coast, it is not a most popular beach destination in Vietnam. This is because many islands do not have a beach and the islands that do have a beach are often small and difficult to access. For this reason they can only be visited on a cruise. This makes a visit to one of the beaches in Halong Bay extra special. If you would like to visit beaches but do not depend on a cruise, it is best to travel to the island of Cat Ba. On this island you can stay and there are many beaches that you can visit on your own. 6. Explore Cat Ba Cat Ba is the largest island in Halong Bay and one of the few islands where you can also stay. The island has a beautiful wild national park where you can take walks, spot animals and enjoy beautiful viewpoints in the middle of the jungle. Other fun activities include cycling or scooter around the island, kayaking or just relaxing on the beach. If you want to see a little more of the bay, you can also take a day tour by boat from Cat Ba. 7. Visit Lan Ha Bay or Bai Tu Long Bay Almost everyone knows Halong Bay, but did you know that there are two other bays next to Halong. Lan Ha Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay are smaller than Halong Bay, but just as beautiful. But the best thing about these two Halong Bay alternatives is that far fewer boats come here and therefore fewer tourists. So you don’t have to be so afraid that you have to share a beach or cave with many other travelers. Because both bays are a bit further from Hanoi, you will be on the road longer. Furthermore, you will see similar landscapes and engage in similar activities such as visiting floating fishing villages, exploring caves and kayaking on your own. 8. Caves The islands of Halong Bay are made of the same rock as the landscape in Phong Nha, where you will find some of the most impressive and largest caves in the world. So there are also plenty of caves in Halong Bay. You can actually visit a number of these caves and there is often always one included in every cruise itinerary. Some caves are also beautifully lit with various colors. Another unique experience is dining in a cave. 9. Nice viewpoints From a boat trip you often have to look up to get a good view of the islands, but the best view is often from above. If you don’t have the time or budget to take a scenic flight, the best alternative is to visit a viewpoint higher up in the bay. The best viewpoints in Halong Bay are spread out. For example, you have Bai Tho Mountain near Halong City, Ti Top island in the middle of the bay and on the island of Cat Ba you even have several viewpoints that you can visit. 10. Rock climbing If you don’t mind putting in some effort to reach a viewpoint, go rock climbing in Halong Bay. Not only the view from above is worth it, but the entire climb is a great adventure. The rocks in the bay are perfect for climbers and it is possibly one of the best places in the world for climbing. There are also options for deep-water soloing.
Wedding Venues Should Be Chosen With Care
A wedding is an occasion that needs much planning and preparation. There are quite a few things that make weddings a memorable and pleasant experience for the bride and groom as well as guests. You should select your wedding venue with great care to make it a grant event. The size of the wedding hall should accommodate all guests comfortably, at the same time too large a hall is not necessary. You can select a hall with 20 to 25 extra seats, but not more as too many empty seats tend to send a negative impression that many guests have absented from the wedding. This is a bad feeling for the guests. The venue of the wedding should have space for all the activities you plan to set up, be it a band, dance stage, or standing feast. If there is no suitable arrangement to contain the guests, the place will be stuffed and unpleasant. No one wishes to stay in an overcrowded wedding hall. Hence, space should be allotted for every planned activity at the wedding hall. Ensure the arrangements are done in an appropriate way by visiting the place the previous day of the event. Wedding costs can rise to unanticipated heights if you are not cautious. Hidden costs and expenses are the main reason for these surprising or shocking extra expenses. Get a clear picture of the catering expenses, rent for furniture, rents for cutlery and crockery, charges for food and drink, stage decoration charges, DJ charges if there is one, and charges for the staff service. It is when miscellaneous charges are added to regular bills, that the expenses turn atrocious. Understand the expenses of all services and calculate the chances of getting an increase in the bill. Visit the wedding venue two weeks before the occasion to ensure it is in top condition. Flaws should be repaired and taken care of by contacting the respected persons. An unkempt wedding venue kills all the charm of a wedding. Note the time needed to reach the wedding venue from your home so that you can start on time and reach the place on time on a great day. There are many wedding halls in Jaipur available in different sizes and costs. If you think the venue you chose is too expensive there is no need to stick to it. Find another place that is less expensive, but has the necessary facilities. Ensure the hall is booked on time so that you do not miss the chance to get a good venue for someone else.
Falling in Love With Singapore
Do any of you have a place that you've never visited, but you know you're meant to be there?! Well, for me, it was always Singapore. My aunt was born in Malaysia, and she and my uncle lived in Singapore for almost 20 years! My grammy always told me stories of traveling there for the wedding or just to visit and it sounded magical! In college, I inexplicably became friends with a ton of incredible, insane, amazing Singaporean girls and I finally had a chance to visit them in their home town! Myself and two other friends stayed in a gorgeous AirBnB (pictured above) with a British family (and their dog!) and spent four days there eating, exploring, and discovering what humidity truly is. Some places you should definitely check out: 1. Chinatown - There are tons of shops and eateries all around this area and the architecture is really cool! Here you can find cafes that serve drinks the old fashioned way - in a REALLY thick cup so the liquid never cools. (Old men often pour the drink into the saucer and drink from that rather than drink the super hot coffee) Also try out a Singaporean specialty which is half tea, half coffee! 2. ALL THE FOOD COURTS Singapore is famous for their food courts, which are just huge open-air markets with a ton of stalls offering every kind of food you can imagine. Most are open 24 hours and my friends and I were lucky to have stayed near one of the most famous ones - Newton Food Centre! Carrot cake is actually a radish and soy sauce dish that is INCREDIBLE. BBQ Stingray is delicious and you MUST try it. Banana prata is like the best banana pancake you will ever have in your entire life. Ice Kachang is a dessert, yes there is corn and beans in it ;D Check out all the colorful food below: You should also really take advantage of the heat and use it as an excuse to eat ice cream with every meal...cause I sure as hell did! 3. Orchard Eats Other foods you should try are rainbow dim sum near Orchard station and steam boat which is similar to shabu shabu! 4. The Flyer My friends were nice enough to get us discounts for the Singapore Flyer which was awesome! I wouldn't recommend paying full fare for it unless you really like ferris wheels, but it gave us an incredible view of the city! 5. And of course definitely visit the Gardens By The Bay! It was really incredible and you could walk through the Marina Bay hotel (where we took a much needed iced coffee break) Singapore is definitely a foodies paradise and even though I've never experienced humidity like that (even in Hong Kong!) it was worth every second!

Singapore Juice Bar Successfully Trolls Google.
So Google is pretty neat. I mean, it's safe to say it's changed the world and how we live in it. If we have a question about virtually anything, we go to Google. When we forget a phone number, want to listen to our favorite song, or find more information about the presidential candidates, we've got it. We've also got its apps, most famously Google Maps. Without it, I would probably be forever lost. With it, I can Google Earth my childhood home to make sure it still exists. Google Maps is super stalkery in just about the best way possible, and no one has caught onto this better than Singapore-based juice bar, Daily Juice. So, if you pull up Daily Juice on Google Map's street view, at first, it's a little unassuming. So you zoom in closer, and then you're like, wait - is that Barney?! Barney then invites you inside to meet his friends. (Yes, Google Maps lets you go inside. Technology is crazy, kids.) You've got Yoda serving up some juice to a Stormtrooper while their friend, Mr. Gingerbread Man, looks on. And then he goes to join Mr. Gator, Homer Simpson, Bugs Bunny, Darth Maul, and Iron Man, who is up to some curious PDA with the aforementioned Barney. So next time you're hanging out with a friend and feeling like you need a good conversation starter, have them look up Daily Juice in Singapore and wait. You'll both probably get a good laugh out of it. Have you guys seen any other examples of people messing with Google's street view feature? Would seeing a company do this make you want to go there even more?
