Mostly, people travel to Halong Bay on a cruise following an organized tour provided by one of Halong Cruise Companies. It is common that we don’t like going on fixed tours like that because they make us feel like we are losing our independence, we can’t take control of our plan. With that thought, some travelers choose to take a bus from Hanoi to Halong Bay or ride a motorbike from Hanoi to Halong Bay so that they can themselves decide their time, destinations, and itinerary. 

However, those ways are more recommended in other spots than in Halong Bay. Halong Bay, Vietnam is one of the most well-known and therefore most crowded tourist spots in Vietnam. As a result, on the other side of providing a variety of services including entertainment, accommodations, restaurants, and shopping malls, Halong Bay is to some extent becoming touristy. Importantly, you will have to consider a lot to figure out how to get there, where to stay, where to eat, what to eat, where to go, and so on and have to know how to negotiate the prices in order not to be overcharged. Moreover, if you travel without a Halong Cruise, you may probably face touts and scams which frequently happen in tourism spots, and badly get tricked as there is nobody to guide you.
