This short trip is the perfect add-on to any adventure in Vietnam - whisking you from the the cosmopolitan streets of Hanoi to World Heritage listed Halong Bay. Jump on board the Jewel of the Bay and sail past thousands of limestone islands rising dramatically out of the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin. Enjoy delicious meals cooked on board, dive into the water or discover secret caves in a kayak.
Day 1 Hanoi/Halong Bay
Leave behind the French style and Asian energy of Hanoi and head to the enchanting surrounds of Halong Bay. Then take to the emerald waters on a junk and sail among the 2,000 towering limestone karsts of Halong Bay. Spend the afternoon swimming, exploring stalactite-encrusted caves, soaking up the sun or kayaking to secluded lagoons. Finish the day with a delicious dinner on board the boat.
Day 2 Halong Bay/Hanoi
After a night spent in the heart of this spectacular bay, wake to the sounds of waves gently lapping at the boat. Be sure to make time for an early morning swim before breakfast. Spend the remainder of the morning further exploring this World Heritage-listed site - a truly special place. After explorations are finished, return to the mainland and be driven back to Hanoi.
