You will then set sail on the majestic Lan Ha Bay, taking in the scenery from the comfort of your cruise vessel. 

At around 11 AM, you will arrive in Cat Ba National Park, where you will visit the Hospital Cave, a clinic that was constructed inside a Cave during the American-Vietnam War.

Returning to the boat, you will set off on the emerald waters once again and enjoy a delightful local lunch. 

After lunch, you will have the option to kayak and swim in the crystal clear waters for an hour.

When you return on board, you will be treated to an assortment of fruits, cookies, tea, and coffee as you continue to sail passed the bay's hundreds of towering islands. 

You will get to partake in a Vietnamese cooking class, before you return to land at around 5 PM, and are driven back to your hotel in Hanoi, where you'll arrive at around 7 PM.
