Care to partake in some squid fishing?See more
Fun and simple, squid fishing equally pleases the young and the old. Even the unskilled, unaccomplished fisherman, with ample patience and focus, can hope, even expect, to lure one or more of Halong bay’s bountiful cephalopods to nibble on his fishing line. Squid fishing is a nighttime activity, typically pre- or post-dinner.
Fishing under a full moon is particularly advantageous, as the squid are generally actively feeding during this time. If you should so wish, our chef will graciously accept your catch of the day to create a delicious meal for your offering.
Kayaking in Halong bay…pretty amazing, don’t you think?See more
Gliding along the bay in a kayak, you can meander among the dreamlike limestone outcrops in a silence so deep as to be broken only by the lapping of the paddles breaking the surface of the water. Explore some more secluded, less trafficked areas of the bay, overtaking local fishermen in their pod-like, woven bamboo skiffs.
