After pickup from your Hanoi hotel, travel to Tuan Chau wharf and transfer to your junk boat by tender. Listen to a short safety briefing, as you enjoy your welcome drink and then savor lunch while you cruise to Halong Bay. Look out for monkeys, as you stop at Luon Cave and then enjoy the white sands and panoramic views from Tip Top Island. After a cooking class and elegant Vietnamese dinner, watch movies, listen to music, or fish for squid.
After savoring the view from your cabin, the day begins with tai chi, followed by a light breakfast of coffee, tea, and pastries. Explore Sung Sot Cave with its startling formations and then check out of your cabin and relax over brunch, as you cruise back to the wharf. Your shuttle transfers you back to your Hanoi hotel with a stop at a traditional workshop en route.
To truly experience Halong Bay, you need to wake up to its surreal seascapes. Do exactly that in an ocean-view stateroom on a spacious junk boat with no more than 17 cabins. Besides a full program of activities, including kayaking, squid fishing, and a cooking class, visit Luon Cave, Sung Sot Cave, and Ti Top Island, and enjoy four meals on board.
