Halong Bay to Hanoi
Enjoy your morning in the middle of the bay as the sun rises and breakfast is served while the vessel cruises slowly through the magnificent rock formations and back towards port. Then travel back to Hanoi and visit the Old Quarter. Take a walking tour through charming Hang Be Market and around Hoan Kiem Lake. This bustling area of narrow streets and alleys is home to thousands of small shops. It's a great place to explore with plenty of photo opportunities all around. Then end the day with a famous Water Puppet show.

Day 12
End of tour
This morning visit the Temple of Literature and the One Pillar Pagoda and the mausoleum of the historic father figure of modern Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh, and the former president's house on stilts where he lived from 1958 to 1969.

Towering limestone pillars and tiny islets topped by forest rise out of the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin and make Halong Bay one of Vietnam's most popular tourist spots. This vision of ethereal beauty was designated a World Heritage Site in 1994 and the islands, with their wave-eroded grottoes, are on most travellers must-see lists when visiting south east Asia. But to the south west of this iconic destination is the quieter Lan Ha Bay which you get to explore on this overnight boat cruise.
