Departure End date :

Day 1: Hanoi - Halong Bay (L - D)

After you are collected from your hotel in Hanoi’s city centre begins the 3-4 hour drive through the lush rice fields, agricultural lands and small country towns of the Red River Delta. Keep a look out for some of the quirks of Vietnamese traffic! There will be a rest break about halfway through the journey to stretch your legs and enjoy refreshments. Upon arrival the Captain and crew of your cruise will welcome you aboard, and around 12:15 the anchor is weighed and your trip begins. Lunch, a feast for the senses, sets precedent for the high quality of cuisine to be enjoyed whilst onboard. 
 
After lunch the cruise heads to Sung Sot cave, where you will marvel at caverns walled with cascades of glittering rock and dripping with stalactites thousands of years in the making. Spend the rest of the afternoon soaking up the sunlight, visit the famed floating villages of Halong bay, experience the karsts up close as you maneuver your kayak across the silken green waters, or enjoy a refreshing swim in the surrounding area. 
Spend some time to chat with your fellow passengers, meeting people from all over the world before enjoying a culinary tapestry of international and Vietnamese flavors at the buffet dinner served in the dining room. The evening is spent at your leisure; make the most of the cruise’s happy hour, try your hand at squid fishing with the crew, or just recline and revel in the night scenery. 

Day 2: Ha Long Bay – Hanoi (B - L)

Rise bright and early for complimentary café and selection of fresh breads and pastries served on the sundeck. Watch as the undulating silhouettes of the limestone karsts are seeped in sunlight as dawn draws her golden curtain over the sky. Stop at Ba Hang fishing village for a first hand insight into the lives and livelihoods of the people who live between sea and skies. The cruise heads back along the sparkling emerald waters to Halong city, and one by one the islets slip back into the horizon. Savor your last meal on board with an energizing brunch before disembarking to await your transfer back to Hanoi.

We joined the overnight Halong Bay cruise. we were promptly picked up at our hotel and joined the other travelers on a 3 1/2 hour bus ride to Halong. As there were only 9 of us, we got to spend a lot of time getting to know the other travelers. Our guide, Happy was very enthusiastic, and was eager to share his knowledge about Vietnam, Hanoi and Halong. The activities were fun- sightseeing around Surprise cave and kayaking around the bay, early morning tai-chi, etc. Learning to make spring rolls for our lunch was a good opportunity to bond with others. And the food was very good, too. Just remember to bring water and snacks before you board, as they can be expensive on the cruise. The best part was because we were a small group, there was a lot of time to just sit around and relax peacefully on the sun deck. The only disappointing thing was we did not get to swim as much as we wanted because of the weather and swimming in most areas was prohibited. But overall, a fantastic experience!
