Get on the seaplanes. A scenic flight is really the only way to truly appreciate Halong Bay’s magnificent seascape of nearly 2,000 jungle-clad limestone pillars reaching up from the green waters, all spread over an area of 2,000 square kilometers.
With a water takeoff and landing from Tuan Chau Island Marina, our 25-minute sightseeing flight takes in the highlights of UNESCO-listed Halong Bay, providing a completely different perspective than from a cruise ship. From the air, the islands appear as mountain ranges, resembling the undulating body of a dragon, the meaning of “Halong” in Vietnamese.
