What you can expect
The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Ha Long Bay, also known as the “descending dragon bay,” is conserved a true natural wonder of Vietnam. Spend a day exploring its many rocky, uninhabited islands and cruising its pristine turquoise water in the company of a friendly guide.
Start the day with pick-up from your hotel and make your way towards Ha Long City and the Gulf of Tonkin, a striking bay that's populated with various species of flora and fauna. Admire views of this densely biological world and make a short stop in Hai Duong Province to wander the area a bit.
Arrive in Ha Long City and step on board a boat that takes you on an extensive journey into the sparkling Ha Long Bay. Drift peacefully along the bay's extraordinarily turquoise water, cruising past a variety of towering rock formations rising prominently into the sky. These uninhabited islands are made of limestone karst, and much of their surface area is blanketed with vibrant green vegetation that complements the water's colour beautifully.
Enjoy a delicious lunch of traditional Vietnamese dishes onboard the boat as you glide gentle over cresting waves. Make your way to a legendary fishing village and catch sights of locals going about their day, then visit Thien Cung Cave, whose stunning beauty creates a heavenly feeling. Eventually, you return to the harbour and board a bus that takes you back to your hotel.
