    Swimming Safe guides when traveling Halong Bay

    Halong Bay is a ideal travel destination - a World Heritage Site, with thousands of limestone islands and caves. There are countless places to stop for swimming, fishing, snorkeling and kayaking when cursing around islands. The stunning scenery of sheer mountain cliffs rising out of the bay makes an ideal backdrop to water-based activities.

    For swimming activities at the beach in Halong safer. VietNam Typical Tours will share with you some of these safety guidelines when swimming in Ha Long Bay.

    – Don’t forget to do litter exercises before go to swim.

    – Never dive into shallow water, or water of unknown depth.

    – Never swim while intoxicated. Alcohol impairs judgment, unnecessary risks are taken and a swimmer will tire more easily, increasing the chance of an accident.

    – Check with the lifeguard on surf conditions before swimming. If lifeguards give you directions or instructions from the stand, obey them. Never swim alone - use the buddy system.

    – use the buddy system. Don’t overestimate your swimming ability, especially early in the summer when the water is cold. Swimming ability is severely decreased in cold water.

    – If you are confronted by a large wave and there is not enough time to get away from it, try to dive underneath the wave. Keep your body as low as possible until the wave passes over you. Timing is important, dive into the base of the wave just before it breaks. Do not dive if the water is too shallow.

    – instead crouch and keep a low body profile.

    – If caught in rip currents, relax and swim toward the shore at a 45-degree angle until you are free of the current. If the rip currents are strong, swim parallel with the shoreline in the same direction as the littoral current and then swim diagonally toward the shore. If you are not able to swim out of the currents, call or wave for help. It is wonderful if you can enjoy clear and blue water, play with waves and build sand castle or simply just lying on the beaches and enjoying the tropical sunlight.
