Venture into the natural majesty of Halong Bay on this 2-day cruise and seaplane flight over the UNESCO World Heritage site. The bay's undisturbed beauty is yours to explore as you glide overhead and venture leisurely through its jade green lagoons and multitude of limestone islets.
Day 1: Seaplane Flight or Shuttle & Cruise Embarkation
Choose to head to Halong Bay by shuttle bus or aboard a seaplane, which affords beautiful aerial views between Hanoi and Halong Bay. If you choose to arrive by shuttle, you will return by seaplane. After arriving, transfer to your L'Azalée cruise, a traditional wood junk that's been elegantly restored. Visit a secluded part of the bay and spend your afternoon swimming in the calm emerald waters or kayaking around forest-covered islets. In the evening, return to your cruise just in time to watch a brilliant, vibrant sunset over dinner.
Day 2: Sung Sot Cave & Cruising Through the Bay
Begin your morning with a calming tai chi lesson on the deck and relax your mind and body in the fresh bay air. Fill your morning with an excursion to Sung Sot Cave, which is also known as Surprise Cave. The impressive limestone grotto is lined with stalactites and stalagmites along its 1,640-foot (500-m) illuminated passage. Tread through the natural wonder before returning to your vessel and heading back to port, where you make the trip back to Hanoi by shuttle bus or seaplane, depending on your first day's transportation choice.
