Full description

Explore Ha Long Bay on a boat cruise with kayaking, swimming, cave tours, and lunch. Leave the bustling streets of Hanoi behind for the day and head out into nature with your local guide. Walk through natural caves, see towering stone cliffs rise above the water, cruise along the peaceful waters as you tuck into a local lunch onboard and enjoy a day out of the city.

Leave Hanoi bright and early and head to Ha Long City through the green fields in the Red River Delta. Embark your cruise at Ha Long wharf, with enough time to stretch your legs and snap some pictures of your striking surroundings.

Then, glide off over the calm waters of Halong as you sip on your welcome drink and listen to your cruise briefing by your guide. Marvel at the stone mountains jutting out around you, stunning green-watered bays surrounding you, and white sand beaches tucked away in them.

En route, have lunch as you admire your surroundings. Fueled up, jump into the boat's tender and head to Sung Sot Cave. Follow your guide into this mammoth underground world, paying close attention to the massive stalactites and stalagmites of all shapes and sizes around you.

Head back to your boat for some relaxation time in the sun or in the shade. Grab a paddle and discover Luon Cave by kayak to see one of the most stunning destinations in Halong Bay. Continue your day of excursions as you head to Titoy to either embark on a hike or sit and relax on the beach for a cooling dip.

Head back to the main pier as the sunset's bright orange hues paint the evening sky overhead. Tuck into some wine, cakes, fruits, and tasty snacks, before sitting in the comfort of the shuttle to head back to your starting point in Hanoi.
