Our driver and tour guide will meet and pick up at your hotel at 7:30Am for the journey east of Hanoi (approximately 3 to 3,5 hours) to Ha Long City Town, the gateway to Halong Bay. En route you will pass fields of busy workers farming their rice fields using traditional methods of cultivation, arriving to Halong City at about 11:00
You will have 5 hours aboard your boat cruising around this magnificent bay and among thousands islands that jut out of the sea with its spectacular natural environment - you will also have the opportunity to stop at two of the many grottoes.
The first stop on this five-hour cruise is Dong Thien Cung (Heavenly Palace Grotto), located on a remote island in the bay. As the name suggests, the cave adorned with fantastic stalactites and stalagmites. Colored lights transform the scene into a fairytale palace. Surprise Cave comes next and you will surprise at nature’s creativity, this cave seems to glisten with gold and silver.
We continue cruise to the southern part of the Bay, where we will admire view of many strange-shaped islands. Our final stop is Titop Island, with its powdery white sand and crystal water; Titop beach is a favorite place for a swim. A steep path leads to a lookout and a small pentagon-shaped pagoda that offers a breathtaking view of the whole bay scenery. Cruise back to Halong City, board our transport at 5:00 to 5:30 PM and return for Hanoi.
We will stop at a ceramics village in the middle on our way where artisans create superb ceramic vases and other masterpieces in their kilns and have the opportunity to purchase many of their products at a fraction of the price that you could expect to pay outside of Vietnam. Arriving at about 8.00 PM, we drop you off at your Hotel.
