2. Battery charger
With the 2 days 1 night tour or even longer with Huong Hai Sealife Cruise Halong 3 days 2 nights, forget to bring the battery charge can be a truly disaster. I know that you don’t want to imagine how your rest of the tour would be without cellphone to contact with friends, play game on the car or just simply to know that your cellphone still works! Remember to bring the battery charger for your cellphone, camera and other devices (I don’t recommend you bring your whole house in case it can be lost)
3. Sun cream
Sun cream is not only important for the female but also for the male in the severely hot weather of the summer. Enjoying the trip is really cool, but bringing home a tanned skin is terrible! I strongly recommend you to bring the sun cream (with the SPF index over 30, at least)
4. Personal hygiene stuffs
On the Halong cruises, every room will be equipped with enough hygiene stuffs like shampoo, toothbrush, soap, etc… However, if you are a careful person, bringing your own is necessary. Some of tourists are even allergic to some substances, so it’s better for you to prepare themselves the personal hygiene stuffs.
5. First aid
On the day tour Halong, tourists can try variety of activities such as climbing or swimming. Getting hurt by falling or being bitten by some insects or jelly fishes are happenable sometimes. Therefore, preparing some simple first-aid is essential for making your trip safer and more careful.

6. Flip flop
Visiting cave is a part of interesting activities with cruise tour Halong. However, in some cave and grotto, the ground is very slippery. Moreover, you can also take a walk on the sandy beaches. Hence, preparing a flip flop is the good way for making your movement more comfortable and fitting with many terraces. It is absolutely better than a tough pair of shoes and easy to get wet. 
7. Swim suit
Don’t tell me you can go to swim without a swim suit! No matter you are a boy or a girl, swim suit is something indispensable in your luggage. If you are a fashionista, you don’t want to be weird in an awkward clothes in the beach. Preparing a comfortable but fashionable swim suit will make you more confident in the beach.

How to Avoid Seasickness on a Halong Cruise

How to Avoid Seasickness While on a Halong Cruise
 

                                                                                              by Michael Martin Leaño

Seasickness is definitelly something that can taint if not completely ruin your cruise. Ask anyone who’s gone through it and they’ll agree: seasickness is pure, unadulterated misery. It’s caused by conflicting signals being sent to your brain by your senses. To prevent that queasy feeling from ruining your cruise, here are a few tips to avoid seasickness.


Huong Hai Sealife Cruise Halong-Avoid Seasickness


Tip #1: Avoid certain foods

Before going on your cruise, make sure you avoid greasy, spicy, and heavy foods. If you’re having breakfast, eat something simpler and healthier like oatmeal or other cereals. Stay away from citrus fruits, juices, and alcohol as well. Alcohol, in particular, is a diuretic, which can increase your dehydration and weaken your resistance to seasickness.

Tip #2: Get acclimated

To find your sea legs, you simply need to get used to staying on a ship. To do so, you should try to spend as much time as you can on deck. Lying down can actually make the seasickness worse so try to keep moving around until your body acclimatises to the ship’s movement. When on deck, look at the horizon using your peripheral vision (i.e. don’t stare at it) to help your brain adjust.


Tip #3: Try anti-seasickness wristbands

By simply applying pressure to a certain part of your wrist through acupressure wristbands, you can reduce or eliminate symptoms of motion sickness. There are many products available online, in pharmacies, or even at Woolworths. The best part: they’re cheap, have no side effects and you don’t have to take anything to enjoy its benefits. Give them a try—they’re one of the best options here.

Tip #4: Take ginger

If you’re looking for a natural option, try ginger; it can ease the queasiness that comes with motion sickness. There are many forms including gingersnap biscuits, ginger capsules (take 1000 milligrams during every six hours), ginger candies, ginger ale, ginger beer (just make sure it’s the non-alcoholic kind), ginger candies, and ginger tea. Like the wristbands, ginger has no side effects and you don’t need a prescription to take it. Unless of course, you don’t like the taste of ginger. But considering that there are many forms, just pick the one you can stomach.

Tip #5: Consult a doctor

If you want a sure-fire way to avoid seasickness while on your long-awaited cruise, then talk to your doctor, who can prescribe you a wide variety of medications. These include Transderm Scop patches (placed behind your ear), dimenhydrinate pills (an over-the-counter drug), cinnarizine pills (usually taken two hours before travel), or promethazine pills (usually taken every six hours). Just take note that some of these medications would make you sleepy, particularly the pills, so don’t take them without your physician’s orders.

Tip #6: Cruise on larger modern ships

Want to minimise the effects of seasickness? When you book your cruise, choose a large, modern ship . These bigger and newer vessels use technologies like stabilisers that make your cruise smoother overall. Fortunately, these ships have become more common now as the industry is constantly trying to modernise its fleet.


Tip #7: Book a cabin in the middle of the ship

To help in your acclimatisation, get a cabin that’s situated in the middle of the ship since there’s less motion there. If you’re susceptible to motion sickness, stay away from cabins located at the stern or bow as there’s more movement there.
