The immense water surface in Ha Long is home to a number of water sports such as rafting, kayaking, and swimming. Tourists who love adventures can try water motor driving or parachute-pulled canoeing offered on Bai Chay or Tuan Chau beach. While the high speed of the water motors brings about thrilling moments, a parachute-pulled canoe tour gives tourists a birds-eye view of the spectacular scenery of the bay below.

For those wishing to spend more time sightseeing and discovering the bay by themselves, kayaking is surely the perfect choice. The most impressive moment is when the kayak began moving into the cave. The further one goes inside, the darker and cooler it is. The cave is filled with falling stalactites, and sometimes, one has to crouch down in the boat to avoid hitting his head on them.

Find respite in Yen Tu pagoda

Yen Tu Pagoda is a complex of pagodas in the mountain of Yen Tu in Quang Ninh Province; 14km from Mao Khe Town, 60km from Halong City, and 110km from Hanoi.

Yen Tu Pagoda is associated with King Tran Nhan Tong (1258-1308) who was the 3rd king of the Tran Family. After successfully driving the invaders out of the kingdom, he resigned and still helped to train his son (King Tran Anh Tong ) to rule the Kingdom. In October 1299, the successor king was capable of handling the kingdom well and the country was at peace; Tran Nhan Tong gave up the mundane world and went to Yen Tu Mountain practice as a Buddhist monk. In the mountain of Yen Tu, Tran Nhan Tong started Thien Phai Truc Lam which is Zen Buddhism in Vietnam.

Nowadays, visiting the pagodas and mountains of Yen Tu, we'll hike on the stone steps, the uneven path, the vertically steep rocky path to the top of the mountain which is 1,068m in elevation and which is covered in cloud all year round. A good adventure traveller may complete the round trip up and down in 6-7 hours on a dry day. Alternatively, you can go up and down the mountain by cable car which should take 2-3 hours.
