Take a private trip to the breathtaking Halong Bay and let a local show you one of Vietnam’s most prized treasures. Step outside of Hanoi’s city life and get ready to explore the bay. Admire the limestone karsts and islets while you witness the fishermen lifestyle. Enjoy the convenience of having your own driver and private guide and getting picked up from your hotel early in the morning. Enjoy a relaxing journey, admire the stunning scenery of the peaceful villages and watch farm workers in their green fields. Your private host can tell you all about the lifestyle of this beautiful area. Along the way, make a stop at a newly built pagoda where you can admire a majestic Buddha statue and take in the spectacular views. Arriving in Halong Bay, embark on a traditional boat and get ready to witness the tranquil beauty and breathtaking scenery from the decks. Sail around the stunning natural wonders of Halong Bay with thousands of gorgeous limestone cliffs while enjoying exotic delights of Vietnamese cuisine. Curious to find out why the cliffs have names like Fighting Cocks, Incense Burner or Stone Dogs? Your favorite host knows all the legends behind them and is ready to share them with you! Cruise around Ba Hang Floating village and hop into a kayak. Get ready for a mini adventure! Enjoy kayaking around the floating village while spotting the daily life of fishermen on the bay. Keep cruising to the most beautiful cave - Thien Cung cave - one of the largest and most amazing grottoes in Halong Bay. Do you know the mystical legend of this place? Your private guide can tell you the legend of the Dragon King and his bride May, just ask about it. It’s time to get away from the main route and go off the beaten path. Follow your host and glide through the gin-clear waters of the bay to a lesser-known cave that will impress you with its beauty. Take advantage of the fact that this place is unknown to most and admire the fairytale landscape and the calm jade waters. Head back to the shore and hop on your private car for your relaxing drive back to Hanoi where you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.
