The most booked trip is the 2 day 1 night cruise, while the 3 day 2 night itinerary is a true discovery, well-chosen by more active travelers, who are interested in water activities (kayaking, swimming, biking, hiking) and relaxing on board to escape the normal beaten tracks. The 2 day 1 night cruise will give you a great overview of the bay’s beauty and a good taste of local food. Also, you can join in enjoyable activities both aboard and off-board: a quick visit to a beach or hiking to a viewpoint for the bay’s panoramic beauty, choices of short kayaking or bamboo boat row, sunset cocktails, BBQ dinner, and morning Tai Chi exercises. For 3 day 2 night cruise, on the second day, you will be transferred to a “day boat” for further exploration of more remote areas of the bay. Activities will vary for cruises in Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay, and Lan Ha Bay: In Halong Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay, kayaking, swimming, bamboo boat rowing, visiting fishing village are main activities.
Meanwhile, in Lan Ha Bay, beside kayaking and swimming, you will have a chance to bike to Viet Hai village and take a little trek to a small cave nearby. The ride is quite beautiful along the waterfront then through lush green jungle to the village.
For those who don’t like biking, there are options of taking an electric car or a motorbike to the village.
