Halong Bay is one of Vietnam’s most famous natural wonders and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This tour takes in the highlights on a day trip from Hanoi and is ideal for those short on time. Travel through the Red River Delta, cruise around Thien Cung Cave and Dau Go Cave on a traditional junk boat, enjoy a kayaking or bamboo boat excursion, and dine on a seafood lunch on board.
What to Expect
After an early-morning pickup from your Hanoi hotel, admire the Red River Delta scenery on the approximately 4-hour drive to Halong Bay.

Then, board your boat—a traditional wooden junk—in Halong Bay. Keep your camera on hand as you set sail across the bay for endless photo opportunities.

Listen as your guide points out notable landmarks, all with unique names, such as Fighting Cocks Island, Finger Island, Duck Island, and Incense Burner Island, and glide through Thien Cung Cave (Heavenly Palace Grotto), filled with majestic stalactites and stalagmites.

Transfer to a small bamboo boat or sea kayak to get a closer look at the caves and islands, and enjoy about 45 minutes of paddling around one of the bay’s most scenic spots. Then, sail back to the wharf, where your driver will be ready to take you back to Hanoi.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your Hanoi hotel.

Halong Bay day trip

The tour guide, Benjamin, is excellent, view was breath-taking and the food served on the boat was awesome. The only thing that spoils a bit is that the lady of the bamboo boat keep on asking for tips. Overall experience is good, but it will...More
