Halong Bay Mini Adventure 3 day full itinerary breakdown and route map
Hanoi to Halong Bay
Your adventure begins in the Vietnamese capital of Hanoi! Get ready for an early pick up, as we make our way east through scenic countryside for our arrival at the breathtaking UNESCO-listed site of Ha Long Bay. Board the vessel and grab a welcome drink - we’re off to a good start! Enjoy a delicious lunch on deck as we set sail to explore the otherworldly scenery of this karst landscape. When we’re all fed and watered, we’ll take a rowboat to the floating fishing village of Vung Vieng to meet the locals and experience their unique lifestyle. This evening we learn how to make crispy spring rolls before devouring them whilst enjoying a few drinks during our on-deck Happy Hour in the thick sea air.
Early this morning we embrace the yin and yang of life with a Tai Chi session on the deck, once your blood is pumping we have a scrumptious on-board breakfast before setting sail for Three Peach Beach. Named after the three mountains looming above, this splendid white sandy beach is all yours for the day. Relax on the sands or have a refreshing dip in the emerald waters of the bay, perhaps take a kayak out and explore the limestone karsts or, weather permitting, kayak through an incredible tunnel carved into a limestone mountain. Tonight we enjoy a traditional Vietnamese dinner awash in the glorious ambience of the bay.
Halong Bay to Hanoi
Begin your last day the right way with an early Tai Chi session followed by another great on board breakfast. We then make our way to Sung Sot Cave, the most famed cave in Halong Bay, for an unforgettable expedition into the bowels of the earth surrounded by numerous coloured spotlights that paint a kaleidoscopic picture upon the thousands of stalactites and stalagmites that line this enchanting grotto. We emerge from Surprise Cave and begin our journey back to the mainland, soak up the scenery and enjoy a lovely lunch before your arrival in the late afternoon. For those continuing onward it’s time to check-in for the Vietnam Adventure, to those leaving us we hope to see you again soon!
