There will be a delightful lunch served on board in the shadows of the famous Halong Bay islands; rocky spires of all shapes and sizes, bearing impressive figures in the bay. There is the opportunity for kayaking or being rowed by a local worker on a bamboo sampan boat in the open water of Halong Bay. We will have a look at one of the most intricate Halong Bay caves – Thien Cung Cave (Heaven Palace Cave) – before heading back to Hanoi via bus.

Once we have arrived at the harbbour, we will board the Incredible Asia Journeys boat to begin our Halong Bay 1 day tour.
Enjoy a wonderful seafood (or vegetarian if requested) lunch after our quick safety briefing. We have about four hours of cruising time and we make the most of it by heading straight to Thien Cung Cave, passing the litter of iconic limestone towers that make up the bay. The Thien Cung Cave has large empty chambers with a fascinating array of stalactites and stalagmites jutting from its walls.
We will pass the famous rock formations such as Fighting Cock Islet (Hon Ga Choi) which provide the good photo opportunities.
Ba Hang Fishing Village will be our next stop. Here you will have the chance to go kayaking or take a local-rowed sampan boat around the village area, chatting to villagers about life amid the Halong Bay islands. Movie buffs should keep an eye out for locations where they shot the movie ‘Kong’.
Heading back to the Incredible Asia Journeys boat, we will have time for a snack of green tea and bean cake before departing at the harbour, waving goodbye to the crew and boarding the shuttle bus that will take you from Halong Bay to Hanoi. Your Hanoi Halong Bay Day Trip concludes at about 8:30 pm. Thanks for choosing Incredible Asia Journeys and we hope to have the pleasure of serving you again!
