1 Day Cruise | Halong Bay **Sunset Party & Expressway transfer from Hanoi

By Daily Vietnam Tour

Choose this if...

You're looking to maximise your cruise time, and if you'd like to see the sunset over Halong Bay. It's one of the few day cruises that hosts a sunset party!


1 day
Group trip (45 travellers per group)
The cruise spends 5.5 hours on the water - the longest day route for Halong Bay, so it ensures that you see all the highlights in a day! It also takes the fast expressway from Hanoi, which cuts Hanoi-Halong travel time down by half. The expressway route means that there are no stops along the way at tourist trap shops! Finally, though not much of a hard-core party, this is one of the few one-day cruises that includes a Sunset Party on the boat, which means you get to see the sunset over Halong Bay. The team is reliable, with competent guides who speak Basic English.
