Halong Bay cruise overview
This trip starts with flights to Hanoi. Here you’ll find a fascinating blend of East and West on a guided introduction to the city. Then, leave the bustle of Hanoi behind to view the thousands of limestone islands rising out of the sea during the breathtaking Halong Bay cruise.
This four-day cruise to Bai Tu Long Bay is absolutely unique and impressive with many activities. You will kayak to get closer to small limestone islands and explore hidden caves. See how locals catch fish, learn how to cook a famous Vietnamese dish and enjoy a BBQ lunch on a private beach.
Enjoy being off the beaten track with 3 nights staying in the Bay. You will be guided to admire the spectacular natural surrounds and experience local life in the floating village. The crew accompanies you during the trip and are dedicated to providing personal service.
