Travel & Living in Hanoi, Vietnam. Sometimes not.
If you want to push the boat out when visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ha Long Bay then take to the air with a helicopter ride.
A new helicopter service has just been launched and it’s definitely the way to beat the crowds that throng to this natural wonder in the north of Vietnam.
If Ha Long Bay is on your bucket list this is the way to go to see the natural splendor of this amazing place. But it’s not cheap, expect to pay between $125 and $396 USD per person depending on the length of flight.
Northern Vietnam Helicopter Company, a subsidiary of state-owned helicopter operator Vietnam Helicopter Corporation, operate the service using two Bell 505 helicopters out of Tuan Chau island.
