Vietnam junk boat bai tu long bay

Day 1

Hanoi to Bai Tu Long Bay

Arriving at Hon Gai harbour, 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 visiting a hidden sea cave filled with sparkling stalactites.

Continuing to Hon Co Island, you’ll come across a secluded stretch of soft sand where you can lie back in the sunshine, 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 simple but delicious dinner will be served on board before you retreat to your cosy, private cabin.

Day 2

Bai Tu Long Bay to Hanoi

After an early start, you’ll sail towards the village of Vung Vieng in the heart of the bay, transferring to a rustic rowing boat. You’ll meet the village fishermen and learn about local tradition before heading back to the junk. After a leisurely brunch on board, you’ll journey back to Hanoi, stopping off at a local village along the way. The villagers will show you the art of water puppetry.
