Full description
The day begins with pickup from your hotel in the Old Quarter of Hanoi at around 7am and heads to Ha Long International Cruise Port, approximately 2-3 hours away. Upon arrival at the port, board your luxury boat for the day and receive a warm welcome from the tour team. Once everyone’s onboard, set sail towards the remote areas of Ha Long Bay and admire the mystifying and magical landscapes of the rocky islets and islands that surround you. At midday enjoy a delicious lunch onboard the boat as you continue to sail through bay and marvel at the stunning and magnificent limestone mountains all around. After lunch, arrive at Tien Ong Cave, a natural cave in the middle of the sea which is home to an array of incredibly beautiful stalactites and stalagmites. At the cave learn about the historical and cultural values of prehistoric sea fishermen who inhabited the location thousands of years ago. From the cave continue on towards Cua Van fishing village, the biggest floating village in Ha Long Bay. Explore the village by kayak or a bamboo boat and visit the quaint onsite museum to learn about local lifestyle and customs. Next, enjoy some free time on the boat to soak up the views, relax on deck, or treat yourself to a massage service. At 5pm watch an incredible fruit carving demonstration then enjoy a delicious canapé party against the backdrop of the glowing sunset. Finally, head back to the cruise port where your transfer service is waiting to take you safely back to Hanoi.
