Full description

Meet your guide at the airport and enjoy comfortable transport to your hotel in Hanoi central. Relax for the night and prepare for your adventure in the morning.

Wake the next day and embark on your journey towards Ninh Binh Province. Arrive at the Bai Dinh Pagoda Complex, and witness the largest Pagoda in Vietnam and all of Southeast Asia.

Afterward, climb to the summit of the mountain and marvel at the 100-ton bronze statue of the Buddha Sakyamuni. Take some time to purchase some lunch at a local restaurant, and explore the cave complex in Trang An by boat. Spend the night at a home-stay/hotel in Ninh Binh.

Eat a good breakfast at your accommodation and get picked up for your transfer to Halong Bay. Arrive at the Halong Wharf and board your sightseeing cruise. Sip on a welcome drink and learn about the ship with a short cruise briefing.

Eat lunch while cruising the Bai Tu Long Bay and admire the serene waterways, with fascinating rock formations along the way. Find yourself at Cap La Island and get ready to kayak through the karst and breathtaking nature. Take some time to yourself to swim and relax.

Full of the experience from the day, delight in a sumptuous set-dinner onboard. Challenge yourself with some Vietnamese puzzle games and face off with the rest of your group. Try your luck at squid fishing or sit and enjoy a cocktail in the quiet night of the bay. Begin the next day with a centering Tai Chi routine on the sundeck, or catch the morning view of the bay's landscape, while sipping on a cup of tea or coffee. Enjoy a Western-style breakfast, to give you a little bit of familiarity in a beautiful and strange land.

Discover the well-hidden Thien Canh Son Cave and walk the white sandy beach at Hon Co Island. Return to the boat to freshen up and pack up your things, before watching an authentic Vietnamese cooking demonstration. Learn about the simply delicious dish that Gordon Ramsey made famous.

After your meal on board, return to Halong Wharf to catch your bus back to Hanoi. Spend some time decompressing in your hotel, before being picked up by your tour guide to visit Hanoi for the day.

Capture sights of Tran Quoc Pagoda and Ho Chi Minh Complex. Purchase your lunch at a suggested restaurant, and visit the Temple of Literature, the first university in Vietnam. Discover Ngoc Son Temple and Hoan Kiem Lake, then head back to your hotel to relax in the lobby.

Relax for a while, before being picked up and returned back to the airport for your flight home.
