Itinerary
After pickup at your Hanoi Old Quarter hotel or another central meeting point, travel to Halong Bay by climate-controlled bus, stopping at a humanity center for local handicrafts along the way.

At Halong Bay, board a traditional junk boat to cruise around the limestone islets before exploring Surprise (Sung Sot) Cave, one of the bay’s biggest. Then, paddle a kayak around a fishing village to glimpse local life.

Return to your junk boat for swimming or an optional Vietnamese cooking class. After dinner on deck, enjoy the optional provided activities, such as squid fishing, karaoke, and stargazing.

On the second day, take photos from deck or try some optional tai chi before enjoying breakfast and absorbing the beautiful scenery. Then, ride a tender to Ba Hang, a floating fishing village to learn about daily life. Finish your experience with lunch aboard your junk boat and a drop-off back in Hanoi.

Halong Bay

Had a really tranquil time on this cruise. There was many things to do, visit cave, kayak and swim. Food was fresh and divine. Probably would want an extra day should you want to slow the pace as it was very timetabled and structured.

You get back to the dock at the same time you originally arrived. I believe it is early afternoon, somewhere around 12 or 1pm.
