Hanoi to Ha Long Bay
Around mid-morning, meet your guide for a 2.5-hour drive to Ha Long Bay. Approximately 100 miles from Hanoi, its mystical landscapes are one of Asia’s most iconic sights. Translated as the ‘Bay of Descending Dragons’ and located in the Gulf of Tonkin, Ha Long is made up of around 1,600 islands and islets. In combination, these form a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars, lush islands and emerald waters.
Upon arrival at the bay, you will board the Bhaya Legend 2, your private junk boat for the next two days. As you set sail, savor a delicious lunch on deck.
Your first excursion is a visit to Luon Cave by bamboo boat. The northeast part of Bo Hon Island is also a great kayaking destination, for those who are interested. The next stop will be the magnificent Sung Sot Cave, which offers a breathtaking panoramic view across the Bay. This is the largest cave in Ha Long Bay, and its ancient stalactites and stalagmites have taken on fascinating shapes.
Back onboard, sip a cocktail or two (on your own account) as the sun sets over the karst landscape. Foodies can partake in Vietnamese cooking demonstration before dinner, which is guaranteed to whet the appetite.
While parents enjoy a relaxing evening, the children can go squid fishing or watch a movie in the restaurant.
