WHAT TO EXPECT

Day 1: Hanoi – Bai Tu Long Bay (L, D)

  • In the morning, your Halong Bay experience begins with pickup at hotels in Hanoi for the 3.5-hour drive to Hong Gai Tourist Wharf, where you’ll check in at the OS Lounge, the private waiting area to board your boat, the Oriental Sails.
  • Just after midday, embark and listen to a cruise briefing before enjoying lunch on board while you cruise through the limestone islands of Bai Tu Long Bay.
  • In the afternoon, you are free to choose one of the following activity options.
  • Option 1: Fishing village visit If you’re interested in a glimpse of daily life here, take a bamboo boat trip (about 45 minutes) around Vung Vieng, one of the largest fishing villages in Halong Bay. See local fishermen at work, and admire the setting in a closed lagoon, surrounded by mountains.
  • Option 2: Beach and kayaking If you prefer water and sand, board the tender for the ride to Ban Chan beach, where you can relax on the beach, go swimming, play some volleyball, or try kayaking.
  • In the early evening, return to Oriental Sails to freshen up, watch the sunset, and purchase a drink at the bar during happy hour, if you wish. A cooking class with the onboard chef is offered before dinner is served. Then go night squid fishing, if you’re interested, or participate in singing and dancing activities before bedtime.
