What To Expect
On this day cruise, we'll depart early for Halong Bay. The drive may take 3 to 4 hours depending on the high or low seasons' traffic. During the drive, we'll pass by Red River Delta, one of the two granaries of Vietnam. Upon arriving in Halong at midday, we'll sail around the natural "rocky gardens" with a tasty seafood lunch waiting on board!
Most of the islets we'll see are not livable due to the lack of fresh water, but their raw beauty are excellent points of contemplation. Many of them have great names, drawn from their inspired and humorous shapes, including the Surprising Cave, Pelican Grotto, Chopstick Rock, Butterfly Rock, Turtle Rock, the island of Fishman's Head, the Fighting Cocks, the Sail, the Urn, and the Sea Dog!
After enjoying the views, you can visit grottoes, go swimming, or just relax and laze around on the sundeck with your drinks. The boat will return to the wharf in the late afternoon, and we'll take our car or coach to return to Hanoi.
Tour will end at your hotel in Hanoi.
