Overview
Cruise past the limestone karsts and islands of UNESCO-listed Halong Bay on this 12-hour day trip from Hanoi. You'll take a kayak or sampan boat to the floating village of local fishermen, visit Thien Cung (Heavenly Palace Cave), and feast on a seafood lunch. At booking, select a group tour or upgrade to a private tour if preferred.
What to Expect
Begin your day trip to Halong Bay with hotel pickup in Hanoi's Old Quarter. Travel past water buffalo and farmers working in the rice fields of the Red River Delta during a 2-hour drive by coach or private vehicle — depending on option selected at booking. You'll make a brief stop at a handicrafts center before arriving at the Halong wharf around midday.

Here, board a traditional wooden junk and cruise into the World Heritage–listed bay, peppered with limestone karsts and the sheer cliffs of countless islets. Your guide will point out landmarks such as Stone Dogs Island, Duck Island, Finger Island, Incense Burner Island, and Fighting Cocks Island. 

After a seafood lunch (vegetarian option is available), set out to explore the chambers of Thien Cung Cave, translated as Heavenly Palace and adorned with stalactites and stalagmites. Following a 40-minute kayak or bamboo boat ride around a fishing village, you'll head back to the wharf for the return transfer to your hotel in Hanoi.
