1 day
Group trip (30 travellers per group)
This is a luxury day cruise, with a limo transfer from Hanoi. The itinerary features about five hours of tranquil cruising time on the boat, and it goes out to the relatively more tranquil part of the Halong Bay area - Lan Ha Bay. At Lan Ha Bay, you'll cruise through the Dark and Bright Caves and find a shimmering lagoon beyond them, as well as kayak through a karst dotted landscape that is more tranquil than the more touristed Halong Bay area. The Cruise has many well-spaced lounge areas where you can also enjoy demonstrations, such as local chefs leading an informative cooking class, and an entertaining fruit-carving demonstration. These are aimed to provide a window into Vietnamese culture and the light touches of Vietnamese hospitality. Afternoon tea will also be served on board.
