Full-Day Group Tour to Halong Bay on a Deluxe Cruise from Hanoi
What to Expect
Set sail for the destination of Dao Tung Lam Bay aboard a traditional junk cruiser on this deluxe cruise on Halong Bay. Marvel at a World Heritage–listed landscape of jungle-clad islands dotting the emerald-green waters. En route, enjoy a delicious lunch on board. Then visit Ga Choi Island and see the limestone formations inside Paradise Cave. Round-trip transport is available from hotels in the Old Quarter of Hanoi.
It’s an early start to the day as you leave Hanoi to drive to the coastal port of Halong by shuttle bus. The journey takes around three and a half hours with a break to stretch your legs. Upon arrival, board your boat and set off on your cruise. Called “Bay of Descending Dragons” in Vietnamese, the archipelago of Halong Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site composed of almost 2,000 islands and jungle-clad limestone pillars.
Set sail and cruise to Dao Tung Lam Bay, where you will enjoy a delicious lunch in one of the world's most iconic landscapes. Feast on a range of traditional Vietnamese dishes before sailing on to Ga Choi Island - said to resemble two fighting cocks! Take time to marvel at the huge limestone karts rising from the calm waters, before arriving at Paradise Cave, a huge grotto of stalactites and stalagmites. There is plenty of time to relax on the junk's sun deck and sip a cocktail or two before you return to Tuan Chua Marina and your transfer back to Hanoi, arriving in the early evening.
