US$52.00
Date
2 travelers
Overview
Even if you only have a day or two in Hanoi, there’s still time to visit Halong Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, on this efficient day trip. Traveling on a traditional junk, visit a fishing village, savor an authentic seafood lunch, and tour the wonderland that is Dong Thien Cung cave. If you like, you can choose to paddle a kayak or ride a bamboo boat.
Highlights
  • Cruise the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Halong Bay by junk boat
  • Savor a traditional Vietnamese seafood lunch and welcome drink
  • See the dramatic stalactites and stalagmites of Dong Thien Cung cave
  • Enjoy door-to-door transportation from your guesthouse or hotel
What to Expect
Your guide collects you from your hotel or home stay in the morning for the drive to Halong Bay—expect a break to stretch your legs midway. On arrival, receive a welcome drink, listen to the short safety briefing, and tuck in to a traditional Vietnamese seafood lunch. Over the course of your junk boat cruise, visit a fishing village and Dong Thien Cung cave, and have the option to enjoy a short trip by kayak or bamboo boat. After savoring the surreal karst landscapes of the UNESCO-listed bay, it’s time to head back to Hanoi, where your climate-controlled vehicle drops you back at your hotel.

Had an absolutely brilliant day. Picked up in an air conditioned minibus, transferred to a tour boat where lunch was more food than you could eat. Whole day was well worth it and the guide, James, was very helpful

Hi 136kelw, Thank you for making a trip to Ha Long Bay with us. Your advice is just right. Indeed, you should bring an extra clothes set for replacement when you participate in activities during the trip. Especially when participating in Kayaking activities it can make you wet. And if possible, you should bring a swimsuit because you can swim on Titov beach. Once again we thank you very much for your valuable contributions. Best regards
