No holiday in Vietnam is complete without a visit to stunning Halong Bay, considered to be the country's greatest natural wonder. And on this two day cruise on board the Halong Jasmine you will stop at many of the 3,000 islands, explore caves, visit a floating fishing village and meet the fishermen and still have time to relax enjoying delicious food aboard your luxurious junk. You will see the amazing sunrises and sunsets over this beautiful bay, enjoy an early morning Tai Chi class and have the chance to swim and snorkel in the clear waters. If you are staying in Vietnam make sure this short cruise is part of your itinerary.
You will be met at your hotel in Hanoi and driven the three hours to Hon Gai, gateway to Halong Bay. On the way you pass captivating scenery and see fields of busy workers using traditional methods to tend their rice crops. Board the Jasmine at noon and after lunch take a short trek to the summit of Tiptop Island for a panoramic view of the bay. Visit a floating village then enjoy cocktails followed by a sumptuous dinner on board.
Start the day with a Tai Chi session and maybe some more swimming or sunbathing on deck. See more of the bay's amazing islands and visit a picturesque limestone grotto before rejoining your boat to relax as you cruise between the rocky outcrops on the journey back to port. After this memorable cruise you will be taken back to your hotel in Hanoi to reflect on a wonderful experience.
