Combine must-visit attractions with little-known gems on this luxurious 2-day cruise of Halong Bay from Hanoi. Visit natural wonders like the Bewitching Grotto; take a kayak tour of the Dark and Bright cave; and float through the Hoa Cuong floating fishing village. Then, enjoy the rare opportunity to explore inside a floating house in the Rang Dua floating village. The fun doesn’t stop once you’re on-board either: activities include Tai Chi, squid fishing and traditional Vietnamese cooking demonstrations.
What to Expect

Day 1: Halong (L – D)

Appox 07.45: Pick-up at hotels if located in the Hanoi Old Quarter (upon your private booking of Gray Line shuttle bus); departing to Halong Bay with stopovers for refreshing en route.

12.00: Arriving and enjoying fresh tea at Gray Line Lobby before check-in.

12.30: Entering Gray Line Cruise via a private pier and being warmly welcomed by the crew. Enjoying welcome drinks when listening to the Briefing of the main Tour guide and check-in

13.30: Having a delicious Lunch while the Cruise goes ahead to the Bay. This is the best time to watch unparalleled scenery of Halong in a slow motion.

15:00: Arriving at Luon Cave by tender boat. We will discover the area’s tranquility by kayaks or rowing boats. 

16:00: Stopping over at Titov Island. We will have various choices to be by your own, having sunbath, swimming or conquering the peak of the Titov to admire the Bay’s panorama. Recommendation: Climb up the top of the island and enjoy bird's-eye view!

17:30: Going back to the boat for relaxation at the dusk. Enjoy FREE seasonal fruits on the sundeck. Other drinks will be subject to special rates or seasonal promotions.

18.30: Joining a cooking demonstration on the sundeck. Try to make it well and check how well you can cook or prepare for Vietnamese foods.

19.30: A dinner with local gourmet will be served with BBQ fresh seafood. After dinner: Free choice of evening activities (movie watching, squid fishing, etc.). Some activities are to be ordered in advance.

Day 2: Halong (B – L)

06.00: Waking up at dawn for morning exercise (Tai Chi Quan) or enjoying beautiful moments when a blazing sunrise breaks the clouds of the island on the bay (exercises are upon desire).

07.00: Light breakfast will be ready with cakes, bread, tea and coffee, noodle soup, etc.

07:45: Tender boat will pick us up to visit the Surprising (Sung Sot) Cave, discovered in 1901, and now being a must-to-see tourist attraction for its extensive space. After the rock formation and millions years of water erosion, the cave is now featured by hundreds of marvelous stalactites, stalagmites and grandeur stone chambers which are incomparable with any cave in Gulf of Tonkin. (Shoes, sandals and convenient clothes are recommended to visit the Cave).

09:15: Coming back to our cruise for freshening check-out. Cabins will be cleaned up soon whilst we can enjoy drink and sunbath on the half-open-air sundeck of the Gray Line.

10:30: Enjoying a tasty farewell buffet lunch while the boat continuously cruises back.

11:30: Time for us to say goodbye with the Crew, and give them feedback about the trip. We can have some tea or other drinks at Gray Line Lobby and wait for our shuttle bus (or private cars) to return to Hanoi or the next destination.

You might make a domestic flight but not international - we had a late brunch on the ship & didn’t get back to Hanoi until late afternoon so strongly advise you check with your tour operator.
