Vietnam - Halong Bay - 800x450


The wind, rain and sea have carved out dramatic island caves and grottoes that can be explored

Depart from Hanoi in the morning and arrive at the pier at the scenic Halong Bay area around noon. From here you will board your charming traditional wooden junk for an afternoon cruise.

The mystical landscape of this UNESCO World Heritage site is where over 3,000 limestone rock islands with sheer vertical sides and topped with thick jungle vegetation, rise out of the emerald sea. The wind, rain and sea have carved out dramatic caves and grottoes in some of the islands that can be explored. Many have names that reflect the shape of the rocks such as Stone Dog, Incense Burner (Dinh Huong) and Fighting Cock (Ga Choi).

At the core of the islets, there are two wonderful caves and grottoes to visit: Thien Cung (Heavenly Residence Grotto) and Dau Go (Driftwood Grotto) before returning to Halong pier.

Disembark at Halong pier at approximately 16.30 pm and return to Hanoi by vehicle.
