Full description
Experience the magic of Halong Bay on this full-day trip. After getting picked up from your hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter, travel through the Red River Delta to reach Tuan Chau Island. You may choose to join the tour here if you are not staying in Hanoi. Upon arrival at Tuan Chau International Marina, you will be welcomed aboard the boat. Sit down to a delicious seafood lunch and begin the journey through the striking landscapes of Halong Bay.

At your first stop, Bo Hon island, stop to visit the beautiful Surprising Cave. Witness the beauty of this vibrantly lit cave before kayaking through Luon Cave. Alternatively, you may wish to ride in a traditional Vietnamese bamboo boat through the cave.

Finally, challenge yourself with a hike to the top of Ti Top Island and be rewarded with spectacular views of the entire bay.
