Being one of the world’s natural wonders and heritage recognized by UNESCO, Ha Long Bay is a truly attractive destination with 1,969 islands jetting out from the sea and with red sail junks dotting the horizon. Come and experience what the Vietnamese call "The Descending Dragon".
  • Tick off Halong Bay with ease on a hassle-free day trip from Hanoi
  • Get the best views of the UNESCO-listed landscape from the water
  • Convenient hotel pickup and drop-off are included
  • Ideal for first-time visitors with limited time in Hanoi
What to Expect
Your day trip begins with hotel pickup in Hanoi, where you’ll board an air-conditioned vehicle destined for Halong Bay, a UNESCO-listed area home to more than 2,000 limestone islands. During the journey, you’ll admire the Red River Delta, replete with water buffalo and rice terraces. On arrival in Halong Bay, you’ll board a boat and spend the afternoon cruising. Get unobstructed views of the islands from the water, stop to visit Thien Cung Cave or the Palace of Heaven Grotto, and enjoy a fresh seafood lunch on board the boat. The tour concludes with hotel drop-off back in Hanoi.
