Full description
The adventure begins with pickup from your hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter between 8 and 8:30am. As you travel to Ha Long Bay, soak up incredible views of Vietnam’s rural landscapes, including rivers, rice paddies, cane fields, and more. After the first leg of the bus trip, enjoy 15-minutes to stretch your legs in Hai Duong and taste a traditional green bean cake. Arrive in Tuan Chau Harbor at around 12:15pm and board your boat for the day. As you set sail onto the UNESCO World Heritage Listed Ha Long Bay, dine on a delicious seafood lunch to set you up for an afternoon of exploring. The first stop of the day is one of the bay’s traditional fishing villages, where you can take a kayak or bamboo boat ride around the village and meet local people to learn about their culture. Back aboard the boat head to Thien Cung Cave, which is one of the most picturesque locations in Ha Long Bay. Spend 45-minutes soaking up the magical charm of the cave’s grotto, bursting with fascinating stalactites. Continue the tour to a collection of islets where you can cool off from the heat with a refreshing swim.
