Your journey starts with an early morning pick up at your hotel in Hanoi. From there, your English speaking driver will head to Tuan Chau Island in Halong City, roughly 4-hours from Hanoi. 

At Tuan Chau Harbor, you board the beautiful wooden cruise boat that will be your home on your 5-hour voyage of Halong Bay. 

You will have the opportunity to sail between some of the bay's most famous islets. Many of them are named after the shapes they resemble, such as the Fighting Cocks Islet, Toad Islet, Thumb Islet, and Stone Dog Islet.

When you have enjoyed a delicious lunch onboard the boat, you'll stop at the Bo Hon Archipelago. There you'll experience the diverse nature of Bo Hon Island and its cave system. The most famous of the caves is Sung Sot (Surprise) cave, a large and colorful cave you'll have an opportunity to visit.

At Bo Hon Archipelago, you will also go kayaking to Luon Cave and discover its beautiful, hidden lagoon.

Before heading back to Tuan Chau Harbor, you'll visit the romantic Titov Island, which is home to a white sand beach with a limestone mountain towering over it. 

If you are feeling energetic, you can hike up the mountain for a picture-perfect panoramic view of Halong Bay.

On the way back to Tuan Chau Harbor, you will be served an afternoon tea while sunbathing and enjoying the breathtaking view on the upper deck. 

Once the boat docks the harbor, you'll disembark for Hanoi, where you'll be dropped off safely at your hotel after a long day of adventure and sightseeing in one of Vietnam's most spectacular places.
