Cycling through the Bai Tu Long Bay and cycling around Co To Island is a great way to make a long lasting memories of your experience of Ha Long.
What to Expect
Day 1: Ha Long – Van Don – Co To Island
You will be picked up at your hotel and head to the town of Cai Rong where you board a hydrofoil to Co To Island. On board the ferry, you will have the opportunity to take in the breathtaking scenery of Bai Tu Long Bay during the 1.5-hour journey. When you arrive on the island, you take a short walk from the pier to the guesthouse. You will have an easy afternoon of cycling around the Island to take pictures and to get a glimpse of the remote, untouched scenery. The land here is a perfect example of the Vietnamese landscape before wide-scale tourism made its impact. There are numerous hills and peaks on Co To, some as high as 170 meters as well as a local lighthouse. The coastline is mostly cliffs or large rocks, but there are many beautiful beaches as well. Fishing boats usually anchor just off here and you can walk to some of them during low tide. In addition to the lovely shores, the Island also attracts visitors with its diverse sea ecosystems. Visitors tend to be particularly awed by the green and red corals lying deep in the blue water surrounding Co To. When the tide recedes, people on board the ships are treated to a fantastic view of the 6km long coral forest. The reef is also home to the island's developing pearl industry. Overnight on Co To Island.
Day 2: Co To Island – Ha Long
After breakfast, the bus will take you to Mong Rong rock area. Afterwards, visit Bac Van Military Port where you can see Co To Island from afar. You will also visit Van Chai Beach, known as the most beautiful beach in North Viet Nam, before heading back to town for lunch and returning to your hotel.
