A magical seascape of thousands of limestone islets and islands rearing dramatically from calm, green waters, Halong Bay is one of Vietnam’s main draw cards for good reason.

Board a classic boat here and be transported into a dream-like scene, cruising between cavernous caves, hidden beaches and floating fishing villages complete with small schools bobbing on the water.

Travel with Topas Travel and you will experience the quietest areas including Bai Tu Long and Lan Ha which have all the fabled scenery of the more well-known routes, but with less tourist traffic.  Enjoy magical sunsets then rise early and ease yourself into the day with a sunrise tai chi class on deck.

Active travelers can opt for exploration by kayak, the majesty of the towering limestone cliffs rendered more dramatic from water-level.

Another top destination is Cat Ba Island. Trek in its jungled interior for a chance to spot some wildlife, including the extremely rare and endangered Cat Ba Langur. Get vertical with the many climbing routes in stunning Butterfly Valley, or simply hit the beach and unwind.  

History buffs can head for Cannon Fort which also offers splendid views, while Hospital Cave transports visitors back to a time when the cavern contained patient wards and an operating theatre hewn from the rock.
