However, these luxury services are often appreciated by wealthy tourists because they are “worth the money”. Here are some expensive travel experiences in Vietnam.
5-star cruise on Ha Long Bay
Halong Bay (Quang Ninh) is the top destination in the North of Vietnam. Coming here, visitors will be able to see beautiful landscapes. To meet the needs of visitors, cruise boats with overnight service on the bay are offered. The plus point of this type of cruise boat is that the number of tourists is controlled.
If tourists want an upscale experience at sea, they should check out the 5-star cruise tours. These cruise boats all have a luxurious design, suitable to the needs of many guests. Despite the limited space on the sea, tourists will have fascinating experiences such as kayaking, visiting caves, watching performing arts …
The average price for a 5-star cruise tour for 2 days and 1 night on Ha Long Bay is about VND3.6 million/person.
Watching Ha Long from a seaplane
This service will show you a panoramic view of Ha Long from above. Each seaplane is limited to only 12 seats.
The average price for a 25-minute seaplane flight to see Ha Long Bay is VND2.2 million per person. From now until the end of the year, you will only have to pay about VND1.5 million/person to experience this service.
Relax at 5-star resorts
If you choose the most expensive resorts in Vietnam, you may have to spend more than VND100 million per night.
The main differences when staying at a luxury resort are the private space and great personal experience. The landscape in harmony with nature is also what makes many tourists willing to spend “a mountain of money” on these resorts. In addition, a number of resorts have also been selected by reputable foreign media channels to be among the top of the world’s most prestigious resort destinations.
The best 5-star resorts in Vietnam are Six Senses Ninh Van Bay (Nha Trang, Khanh Hoa), Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai (Hoi An, Quang Nam) and Amanoi (Ninh Thuan). The average price is from VND20-120 million per night.
