Marine Plaza

Our rating:

A new addition to Ha Long City, Marine Plaza is a shopping, dining and entertainment complex located a few kilometres past the pier as you head out of town.

Photo of Marine Plaza

As of August 2014, it is sorely under-populated: most of the shops are empty shells and only a few dining options are on offer, none inspiring. It does have an amusement arcade, CGV cinema and TiniWorld (a play area for younger children) so could be just the place to keep the kids amused.

A free shuttle bus runs from Ha Long Plaza Hotel to Marine Plaza throughout the day. Check the website for timetable. A taxi will cost up to around 80,000 VND.
