Experience the UNESCO-listed Halong Bay from both sky and sea on this overnight tour. Survey the bay's islet-dotted beauty from above as you fly in from Hanoi, then get up close to its natural wonders on a relaxing cruise with fun-filled activities.
Day 1: Seaplane Flight & Cruise Embarkation
Board a seaplane at Hanoi's Noi Bai International Airport and leave the bustle of the city behind as you climb into the sky. Stunning aerial views of Hanoi and the surrounding region stretch out below as you fly to Halong. Once you arrive above the bay, dip closer for breathtaking vistas of the tree-covered islets that rise from emerald waters. Touch down at the Tuan Chau Island Marina, where you transfer to your luxurious Emeraude Cruise.
After refreshing with welcome drinks and lunch, spend your afternoon relaxing or participating in activities that take you right into the magnificence of Halong Bay. Choose to take a guided excursion to Sung Sot cave, an awe-inspiring grotto brimming with stalactites and stalagmites, or visit a pearl farm to learn how pearls are made and fashioned into accessories. In the evening, relax on the water after dinner and watch the sky light up with stars.
Day 2: Cruise Through the Bay
Wake up early in the morning to watch the sun paint the entire bay in pink and gold as it rises above the horizon. After a tranquil tai chi lesson on the ship's deck, spend the rest of your morning marveling at the natural majesty of the bay as you weave between its rocky islands. Arrive back at Tuan Chau Marina and bid Halong's ethereal beauty farewell before returning to Hanoi by bus.
