Day 3:

Ha Long Bay (B, L, D)

One of the “cannot miss” destinations when visiting Vietnam is Ha Long Bay, the wonder of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Upon arrival, get on a cruise ship to start the journey around Ha Long Bay. It is no need to describe how amazing it is to see the spectacular landscapes with approximately 1600 limestone islands scattering the emerald green water surface and numerous natural caves. You will immerse yourself in nature by floating in the middle of the sea with a kayaking adventure. After kayaking, watch the sunset. I am sure being there at that magical hour will be a memorable experience for your trip. There will be drinks at the desk or interesting activities such as fishing with local people in the evening.

Day 4:

Then you will be transferred to Noi Bai Airport where your journey with us ends- goodbye until we meet again.
