Cruising on a Halong Bay boat does not require a lot of luggage, because everything is provided onboard, especially on a luxury cruise. Here is a short list of some things that you might actually need during Halong tours.
Food & Water
If your journey starts from Hanoi, as many other Halong Bay cruisers, it’s good to know the drive takes about 4h and you might want some of these. A bottle of water is provided by Bhaya Cruises’ car transfers.
In Vietnam, credit cards are not accepted everywhere so you should always have some cash with you, not only for a cruise in Halong Bay.
Between March and November, this is a must. Hats and caps are also a good idea.
It is very difficult for any Halong Bay accommodation to provide plug adaptors due to the wide variety of existing plugs.
This is something a few travelers actually forget. Halong Bay toursare full of countless stunning moments, so be sure to bring extra-memory to avoid the “full memory-card” frustration.
Sport & formal outfit
You will want to bring both sports clothing for kayaking, biking & trekking, and a formal outfit for dinning & meeting people.
Bhaya Cruises Company, and especially The Au Co boat, is fighting to reduce its impact on the environment. Bringing your own toothbrush is a small but nonetheless helping action.
Mosquito Bite Lotion
Many people are very sensitive to mosquito’s bites, and you might make very good friends by offering some to your fellow travelers.
A First-aid kit is never too much on a trip, as well as your personal medication if you have some.
