Our Halong Bay one day tour begins with a short 3.5 hour drive to Halong City. On arrival in Halong City, we board our private boat for a cruise in Halong Bay. Halong Bay is famous for its spectacular limestone karsts jutting out of the peaceful green waters of the bay. The views are spectacular as we cruise amongst the nearly 2000 islands that fill the bay.
You will see first hand why Halong Bay has been listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site since 1994 and was also announced as one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature in 2011. Halong Bay means “Bay of the Descending Dragon” and legend has it that, in ancient times, when the Vietnamese were fighting off foreign invaders, the gods sent a family of dragons to assist in the fight. During the battle, the dragons spat out jewels that would later become the islands that now are scattered around the bay.
After a welcome drink, we will enjoy lunch on board while we cruise along the breathtaking scenery. Soak up the majestic atmosphere from the top deck and enjoy the stunning views or relax below in the comfortable surroundings. You will also have the opportunity to do kayaking to explore this beautiful area even further. We will also explore some of the grottos or caves that have formed in many of the islands that fill Halong Bay.
We return to Hanoi by road in the late in the afternoon, where you will have a chance to reflect on this memorable day.
