Detailed Itinerary:
Day 1: Hanoi – Halong Bay (L, D)

Am: Be picked up at your hotel from 8h00 for 3.5 hour bus ride through the country side of the Red River Delta to Ha Long City. Upon arrival, aboard Halong cruise, fresh seafood lunch (vegetable menu available) would be served while the boat is gliding out.
Pm: A short tender ride from the middle of the bay to an island for the famous Sung Sot Cave. As the sun sets over the bay, you are free to swim from your boat or just relax on sundeck with your favorite drink. Dinner is served with typically local seafood and overnight on boat.

Day 2: Halong Bay Kayaking (B, L, D)
Am: Rise up for a breath taking on sundeck, be ready with your camera for a stunning vista in the serene bay. After breakfast, a kayaking support boat will take you further to the Southern end of Halong bay to anchor in the tranquil beauty of Lan Ha bay, away from the overcrowded water area. Learn some basic paddling techniques, then make your own strokes and private beaches hopping.
Pm: Lunch (BBQ lunch on beach is at tidal permission) and swim at a private beach. More kayaking for more deserted lagoons and exploring quiet floating village. Then goes a perfect time to take in the views in the cool of the afternoon as the last rays of the sun cast reflections over this beautiful area. You would be back on the cruise at the end of the afternoon. Dinner and overnight on boat.

Day 3: Halong Bay – Hanoi (B, L)

Am: After breakfast, we visit an island (Titop) and relax on its beach; it is optional to walk up to the top for the panoramic view of the anchorage area.
