Day 1 Hanoi / Halong Bay
Halong Bay of the submerged dragon, which boasts 700 craggy and towering islets, is amongst the most picturesque places in Vietnam.
The fantastic beauty of the bays has given rise to many legends, some of them dating back to the ancient past. It is said that a dragon descended into the deep water spitting out gems as he did so. And thus the rocky islands were formed.
Departing from Hanoi we journey to Ha Long City, an afternoon's boating follows - time to appreciate the beauty of Halong Bay's towering limestone peaks. We retire to a particularly picturesque sport, situated on the northern part of Halong Bay, out-of-the-way and home to stunning rock formations.
Here, we take a kayaking ride to explore the bay in close-up. Late in the afternoon we find a peaceful place for anchoring our boat. The night is spent on our boat. (Lunch and dinner are included).
Day 2 Halong Bay / Lan Ha Bay / Bai Tu Long Bay
The day's cruising is follows - time to enjoy the dramatic scenery of Halong Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay's 1,600 limestone peaks.
We have plenty of time for kayaking to see stunning rock formations and explore several floating villages along the way.
Arriving in Bai Tu Long Bay we spend the second night on our boat. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included).
