Stop At: Halong Bay Vietnam

Starting our Best Halong Bay day trip with hotel pickup in the morning (08.00am – 08.30am), you will set out by air-conditioned bus from Hanoi to Halong Bay. The 3.5-hour scenic drive gives you the chance to enjoy the landscape of the Red River Delta, and see the daily rural life of Vietnamese farmers with rice fields and water buffaloes.

Upon arrival at Halong Bay, you will begin the most beautiful day with Halong Bay day cruise, aptly named the “Incredible Asia Journeys” - One of the best Halong Bay Day Cruise, sailing out into the mystical bay. After a short introductory talk by the tour guide, you will enjoy a wonderful local seafood lunch onboard (Vegetarian food is available if requested). The nearly 4-hour relaxing cruise gives you the chance to discover the spectacular scenery of this UNESCO World Heritage site with its thousands of limestone islets and mountains. We cruise through emerald waters, passing by the Dog Stone, Burning Incense Islet and Fighting-Cock Islet, the famous symbol of Halong Bay.

After lunch, we stop at Ba Hang Fishing Village for a trip by kayak or bamboo boat rowed by the locals. That will be one of the most highlighted activities on your Halong Bay day trip. Then, we will visit the magnificent Thien Cung Cave, (Heavenly Palace Cave) to explore huge chambers adorned with stalactites and stalagmites before returning to your Incredible Cruise.

You will enjoy a tea break and sample some green bean cake, which is a local specialty the northern provinces while watching an unforgettable sunset over the legendary Halong Bay.

Afterwards, you get on the shuttle bus to come back Hanoi. The Halong Bay day trip concludes with drop-off at your Hanoi hotel at around 08.30 to 09.00 PM.
