Set sail on a cruise through the remarkably stunning Halong Bay on a traditional L'azalée wooden boat, known as a junk. Discover what makes this bay a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as you journey through the jade green waters and cruise between limestone formations and islands jutting out of the sea.
Begin your multi-day adventure with a convenient pickup from your hotel to your beautifully restored wooden junk. As you set off in the glistening waters, make your first stop at a local pearl farm before setting off for a cruise around a secluded bay in the Kiem Lam area of Cat Ba National Park. Here, get the chance to dive into the pristine waters for a swim, or paddle around in your kayaks to discover exclusive sea caves and coves.
After working up an appetite on the water, enjoy an evening aboard with a live Vietnamese cooking demonstration by your personal chef for your fresh bay seafood dinner.
On day 2, wake up reinvigorated for the day's adventures, as your boat pulls into the largest cave in Halong Bay, Surprise Cave. Here, board onto a dinghy to gain access to the cave's narrow entrance. Once you are through the passageway, wonder at the vastness of the cave's interior and its unique limestone formations.
Finally, head back to your boat for one last cruise toward Halong Port before making your way back to Hanoi to say your goodbyes.
