Ha Long Bay is without a doubt spectacular. It is a not to be missed attraction of Vietnam.
All Travelbay Tours that go to Ha Long Bay include an overnight stay aboard a junk cruise. Originally the term Junk was used to describe an ancient and traditional Chinese sailing ship. The beautiful boats we use range from 3 to 4.5 Star depending on which you have booked and do come with motors
After breakfast, you will be collected from your hotel in Hanoi by the cruise company for the 4 hour drive through paddy fields in the Red River Delta. There is a stop over in the Hai Duong province for refreshments.
Once arriving at the wharf you can check in to your cabin and be welcomed by the crew.
Enjoy the afternoon sitting back, cruising through the Bay and soaking in the scenery - every which way you look is an impressive sight.
You can visit a small fishing village by row boat and there is optional kayaking and swimming available. In the evening there is a cooking class and following dinner there are various evening entertainments - squid fishing, games, movies and more.
Many of the cruises also have an on board spa if you wish to book a spa treatment (at your own expense).
In the morning you can join a class of Tai Chi and visit the Sung Sot Cave (please wear appropriate shoes as there are around 100 rocky steps).
After brunch you will arrive at the port where you will be transferred back to Hanoi.
Lunch, dinner, breakfast and brunch are included on all cruises.
Ha Long Bay is an absolute delight.
