Enjoy a leisurely full-day Halong Bay tour of the limestone karst formations on this tour from Hanoi.
What to Expect
Sail past spectacular islands to see the stunning mountains and visit arguably one of the most beautiful caves of Halong Bay, the Heavenly Palace Cave. Enjoy a delicious seafood lunch and a sampan boat ride through a floating village with the locals. Join this small group of no more than 15 or select a private tour if you prefer.
After getting picked up from your hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter, begin your bus ride through the Red River Delta. As you travel, observe the rice fields, water buffalo and farmers going about their daily lives. Make a brief stop after 2-hours of driving to spend time in the local handicraft center. Once that is done, arrive in the Halong Tourist Wharf around 12:00pm. Here, you will board a traditional wooden junk and sail into the bay. Enjoy the seafood lunch or vegetarian option if preferred as you cruise.
The limestone bedrock and sheer cliffs of the countless islets have inspired local people to come up with names for these formations. Quirky names include Stone Dogs Island, Duck Island, Finger Island, Incense Burner Island and Fighting Cocks Island. Next, head to Thien Cung to explore the chambers adorned with stalactites and stalagmites of all kinds. Finally, take a 40 minute bamboo boat ride around the island and tunnels before heading back to Halong Tourist Wharf. Return to your accommodations in Hanoi by 8:00pm.
