Cuisine and Food

Dining on the boat
Whole travellers booking cruise trip on Halong Bay will have breakfast, lunch and diners on the boat. Restaurants are usually located on the 2nd floor of the boat with fantastic view to the bay. Staff on boat will supply all the meals. Most of the food is seafood. Otherwise, meat and vegetables are also supplied on the boat.

For breakfast, there is milk, jam, bread, toast, soup, eggs, sausage, grilled pork meat, salad, and fruit. Other meals have salad, steamed vegetables, eggs, meat (pork, chicken, or beef), shrimp, crab, and fruit. Vegetarian people can require the chef to have a special menu.


As you can imagine, Ha Long bay is full of restaurants offering the finest seafood. Fish, shrimps and oysters are usually offloaded from boats in the early hours of the morning, assuring the restaurants are stocked with only the freshest products. Most of these Restaurants are of the beachfront type and mainly offer Vietnamese and Chinese cuisine, although Western food is becoming more abundant in the area in recent years.
