Ko Lipe or Halong Bay for 3 days

Posted by michaelbkindle316 on 16/8/2017 at 21:46

I am thinking about Halong Bay or Ko Lipe for our honeymoon during a week in June. I want to have unforgettable and surprise honeymoon for my wife. What should I do?

Those are really, totally, completely different types of destinations. Lipe is for beaches, snorkeling, diving, etc. Ha Long Bay is for cruising past cliffs and fishing villages and enjoying the scenery. June will be getting into low season on Lipe. Both are quite touristy but Ha Long Bay is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the entire region. I reckon either would be suitable for a honeymoon, just depends what kind you prefer.

I think they are all nice for honeymoon trip so choosing Halong or Ko Lipe depending on the previous places you visit is better. If you just choose one, I recommend Halong Bay. Its views are so amazing. I took a plane tour there. It's really worth to try once.

Halong Bay was beautiful. Spend a little bit on a more upscale boat/room and you should have a great time
The staff on mine could NOT have done more or been nicer.. Even when they were dealing with a few... unruly westerners who should have known better :)
It really is pretty

I saw the plane tour by chance and had this trip in summer via Halong Bay Tours. The trip isn't too long but you will be shown an overview of Halong bay from the city to the bay. So wonderful
