Do some kayaking to see a panoramic view of Bai Tu Long Bay with its thousands of islets. Here you can stay on a private beach to do some sunbathing. Have lunch on the boat in a tranquil area of the bay. After lunch, enjoy some more time for kayaking again before returning to the main boat for the second night.

We are really disappointed with our experience on this 3-Day cruise. First point is the driver who picked up us the first day which was really dirty and full of rubbish inside the bus. Once we were on the boat, we rented two rooms (a triple and a double) and to our surprise is that the triple room had a same price per person compared to the double and the extra bed is a mattress placed on a divan (really uncomfortable and unsafe) and all the amenities only for two people (even though we asked the general manager to add an extra, they didn't provide nothing to us). The price was really expensive for what we got. Even the activities programmed were also fake: on the list it was included films in the evening but staff told us that the TV is broken among other thing. On top of that, the shower on our room smelled really bad (like of someone had pee there). The cruise manager didn't help us on anything and we found problems everywhere. I would never recommend this cruise to anyone.
