Immerse yourself in the breathtaking landscapes of northern Vietnam on this cruise of Halong and Lan Ha Bays. Spend three days and two nights among the magical karst rocks!
Lan Ha & Halong Bay 3 Day Cruise
We'll pick you up from your hotel or the meeting point in Cat Ba at 9 am and head to the Beo Dock by minibus. There, the boat will be waiting for our three-day cruise on Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay.
Setting sail from Cat Ba, we'll cruise over the waters of Lan Ha Bay towards our first stop: Ba Trai Do, where we'll take the opportunity to jump into the sea for a refreshing dip and go snorkelling. We'll then make our way onwards to Cam Lagoon, where we'll have a delicious lunch surrounded by the beautiful landscapes of Halong Bay.
With renewed energy, we'll swap the cruise boat for kayaks and delve into the impressive karst scenery here. Paddle to the famous Bat, Monkey, Bright and Dark Caves to admire their intriguing rock formations and hidden tunnels. After dinner back on the boat, we'll go kayaking again after nightfall, this time in search of the incredible bioluminescent plankton that shines below the water - truly unforgettable!
Bright and early on our second day, we'll have breakfast on the boat before setting our course to a magical destination: Paradise Beach. Located at the point where Lan Ha and Halong Bay meet, this is the best sandy beach in the area.
After lunch, we'll visit Dau Be Island, where we'll enjoy another kayaking tour to see the three hidden lagoons. Having admired the spectacular natural landscapes surrounding us, we'll make our way back to Lan Ha Bay. There, we'll spend the night in the floating houses characteristic of the area! In the evening, we'll get to see the bioluminescent plankton again, or if you prefer, try our luck at squid fishing.
At dawn, we'll have breakfast and set sail to visit a fishing village. There, we'll change the boat for a speedboat that will take us to Viet Hai for a four-hour hiking tour through the Cat Ba National Park.
We'll stop for lunch at a local restaurant, before discovering Hospital Cave in the afternoon. This unique attraction served as a secret bomb-proof hospital during the Vietnamese American War! Our last stop will be the Cannon Fortress, before we make the return journey to the original departure points in Cat Ba.
The tour will come to an end at around 5 pm.
