Halong Bay Cruise - Indochina Sails

Description

If you're planning a holiday in Hanoi, this is a perfect add-on: a short cruise on board Indochina Sails, a traditional wooden junk. It's three days of luxurious accommodation, delicious food and glorious sights – a wonderful chance to get away from it all.

Day 1
Hanoi to Halong Bay

This morning you'll be met at your hotel for the journey east to Hon Gai, the gateway to Halong Bay. Considered Vietnam's greatest natural wonder, Halong Bay boasts over 3,000 islands that rise out of the sea. Along the way you can relax and enjoy the views of farmers working their rice fields the traditional way. At noon, you'll board the Indochina Sails and set sail through the bay. After lunch, you'll visit a floating fishing village and have the chance to meet the fishermen who have been living in the bay for three generations. You'll enjoy some free time back on board before a cooking class later in the afternoon, led by the chef, where you'll learn traditional Vietnamese cooking techniques. At the end of a busy day, sip a cocktail on deck while watching the sunset and enjoy a sumptuous dinner.

Day 2
Halong Bay

After breakfast and the chance to join the daily tai chi class, you'll transfer to your day-trip boat and cruise to the bay’s most untouched areas. Here you can take a dip, go kayaking at Bat Cave and visit a pearl farm. You'll enjoy lunch on board, before returning to the Indochina Sails in the afternoon.

Day 3
Halong Bay to Hanoi

Early this morning you'll enjoy a walking tour of Titov Beach Island, where you can climb the steps to the island's highest point for a breathtaking panoramic view of the bay, or just relax on the beach and have a swim. Back on board, you'll enjoy a lavish breakfast buffet, including traditional Vietnamese noodles, then spend time relaxing in the lounge or on the deck, enjoying your last views of the Bay, before you disembark and transfer back to Hanoi.
