Spend the entire day exploring the Ninh Binh area. Start with a 90-minute Tam Coc sampan cruise, known as “Ha Long Bay on land” before the crowd arrives.

Visit the former capital of Hoa Lu with its citadel and emperor temples before concluding with a sampan boat trip along Van Long stream.

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included

After checking out, we will transfer to your floating home for a 1-night Lan Ha Bay cruise. While it is part of the greater Ha Long Bay region with equally impressive karsts, it is visibly much less crowded, more pristine and offers more adventurous activities compared to its cousin.

The Lan Ha Bay islets are great for kayaking, trekking, cycling, swimming, squid fishing, village or cave visits. To make the best use of its quiet location, the exact routing and activities on offer may differ depending on your boat selection and weather condition.

The bay is most beautiful as the first rays of the sun touch the water. Rise early with an invigorating Tai Chi session on the sundeck. After more morning activities, enjoy relaxing time watching the vertical cliffs and tree-topped islets sail pass as we make our way back to the quay, where you will be transferred to Hanoi airport for your flight home.
