Day 1: Pick up in Hanoi and transfer to Halong Bay
Day 2: Cruise in the UNESCO protected Bay and back to Hanoi
At 8:30am your journey from Hanoi to Halong Bay will begin. The trip passes through beautiful Red River Delta scenery of rice fields, water buffalo and everyday life in the villages. Upon arrival, you will board a traditional junk and enjoy a well-prepared lunch of fresh seafood while cruising among the thousands of uniquely shaped limestone islands. There will be opportunity to visit Surprise Grotto, have a swim and possibly climb hundreds of steps for a magnificent view over the bay from the top of Titov Island. Dinner will be served onboard at sunset. Should you like to take another swim, there will be plenty of chance to do so at the anchoring site. (-/L/D)
The junk will continue to slowly cruise around the bay taking in views of Teapot Island, Chopstick Island, the Horse Saddle and Charles De Gaule Island. There will also be time for a swim before lunch is served. The junk then docks at Halong wharf at noon, where a bus will be waiting to transfer you back to Hanoi. (B/L/-)
It is possible to extend this tour with one more night in Halong Bay.
