At 3 PM, you arrive at Luon, one of Halong Bay's most fascinating caves. You explore the cave and the surrounding area by a kayak or a small rowboat before heading back on the cruiser.

Your next stop will be at the scenic Titov Island, known for its beautiful white sand beach and limestone mountain. 

If you're up for the task, you can climb up to the top of the hill on Titov Island for a fantastic panorama view of the bay. The summit may be the most Instagram friendly place in the whole of Halong bay.

At 5:30 PM, you'll head back on the cruise boat and enjoy the beautiful view of the sun setting behind the magnificent limestone mountains while enjoying a fresh drink from the bar.

Before dinner, you'll be invited to join a cooking class on the sundeck, where the chef will teach you to prepare an authentic Vietnamese meal. After the cooking class, you'll have an elegant dinner in the dining room.

When you have enjoyed your meal, you have a choice of evening activities. These include fishing, playing cards, watching a movie, or simply relaxing with a glass of wine by the bar before heading to your cabin for the night.
