Trang An Boat Tour Tips

If you still wonder how to get the best out of your trip to Trang An, here are some tips that you must know:

Always wear your life jacket

Although the boat tour is safe and you can take it off to take pictures sometimes but we highly recommend that you should wear it every time due to safety reason. The life jacket is included in boat tour ticket.

Keep your camera out of the water!

Always keep your phone and camera with you by a hand strap, once you drop it to the water, there is no way to bring it back

Bring water and snack

But don’t throw your garbage to the water

Prepare yourself

If you are planning to take a boat tour in the middle of the day, do not forget your hat, bug repellent and sunscreen home. There is little to no shade along the way. If you go to Trang An in the spring (from January to April), bring an umbrella or thin raincoat, there is high chance of drizzle, it’s not a big deal but definitely can wet you

Try rowing a boat

Each boat has an extra pair of paddles. If you want, you can use them and help your guide. I can imagine that paddling for that many hours per day can get pretty tiring for the guides. Please do not forget the tip for hard worker who helped you get a great trip. Although that money is just 30,000 VND or 50,000 VND (from US$1-US$2), it still will make them feel happier.

They’re now replaced by high-speed trains, hurling through the residential street, just only feet away from people everyday lives including their dishes and laundry drying by the tracks, which all define the Hanoi Train Street…You can visit by yourself or book a Hanoi Daily Tours
