Hanoi to Bai Tu Long Bay
This morning you’ll be collected from your hotel and embark on a 4 hour drive to Hon Gai harbour where you’ll hop on a traditional Chinese junk boat with huge, billowing sails. This will be your floating home for the night. A lunch of fresh grilled seafood will be served as you set sail, kicking off the trip in true local style. You’ll spend the afternoon sailing between towering jungle-topped islands and kayaking between the cliffs.
Stretch out on a secluded beach of soft sand in the sunshine or swim in the azure waters between the rock formations. At sunset, grab an ice-cold beer, watch the blazing sun sink into the sea and soak up the magic of the place. A delicious dinner will be served on board before you retreat to your cosy, private cabin or try your hand at squid fishing or traditional Vietnamese games.
Bai Tu Long Bay to Hanoi
Start the day with a spot of Tai Chi on the deck to welcome in the day before exploring a cave filled with sparkling stalactites. As you cruise back towards the harbour you can relax on deck or watch a cooking demonstration from the chef. Before disembarking you will have a tasty lunch on board. You’ll take a transfer back to Hanoi or to the airport or train station for your onward journey.
We have decided to offer Bai Tu Long Bay instead of the more well-known Halong Bay as the latter is experiencing issued with overcapacity and environmental degradation. So we are part of the solution and not the problem, we want to alleviate some of the pressure on Halong Bay by offering an alternative to make this hot tourist spot more sustainable in the long run – providing employment to many local people whilst allowing visitors to enjoy the stunning scenery of this area.
