Although it may take up to 3 hours to get to the bay from Hanoi it was worth. The kayaking was a nice touch, the caves are an awesome site and gentle trek up Ti Top was perfect to get those breathe taking views of the rocky scenery.

It takes 3 hours (one way) but it's worth it. A unique, beautul scenery is waiting for you. The boat is comfortable, the lunch is big. And when the sun comes out, the whole trip is magical!
