We depart Hanoi at 08:00 for the 3.5 hour drive through the fertile flood plains of the Red River Delta to Ha Long City. Once at Ha Long City we board our private boat for a five-hour cruise of this stunning area, stopping along the way to visit one of the limestone caves in the bay. There will also be time for a swim in the bay’s emerald waters (if weather permits). Whilst on board, you will be served a delicious local seafood lunch. Return to shore and back to Hanoi. Arrive Hanoi around 19:00. End trip.
