Day 1: Hanoi – Hon Gai Harbor – Bai Tu Long Bay – Cap La (L/D)
Be sure to get up a little bit early as you will be picked up at the hotel in Hanoi, head toward Ha Long City soon in the morning. Ha Long is about 180km away from Hanoi so it will take 3 hours and a half to travel from the capital to the City, and you will maybe have a stop-off to have a short rest instead of sitting still in one place before experiencing “Secrets of Ha Long Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay”.
As the first day will begin with exploring on Ha Long Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay – the two famous destination of the place so once tourists reach Hon Gai, a luxury cruise will be ready at Hon Gai International Harbor, preparing to take you a tour around magnificent Bai Tu Long Bay while marveling the amazing rock formations in the Bay and enjoying lunch with local fresh seafood including oysters, octopus, scallops, etc. before going to Cap La. Here at Cap La, tourists can freely swim and join paddling around Cap La and Tra San by kayak until sunset and then get back to the junk where a huge warm dinner is waiting for all of you.
Overnight on board.
Day 2: Cap La – Cong Dam – Cong Do (B/L/D)
Greeting a new day on board with a cup of tea or coffee and have breakfast full or local specialties amidst the open fresh air are truly memorable moments for those who are usually occupied with air-tight walls and crowded streets. On the second day of “Secrets of Ha Long Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay”, you will travel to Cong Dam while marveling the incredible rock formations of Ha Long Bay and kayaking through hidden lagoons and Cong Dam geological park where you will spend time sunbathing or swimming before lunch (or BBQ at the tidal permission).
After lunch and a short break, Cong Dam fishing village will be our next stop in the afternoon. Tourists will take a rustic rowing boat to get to the village, where you will meet hospitable, warmhearted locals and amaze at the mind-blowing beauty of the lagoons before cruising back to Cong Do for swimming or kayaking.
Have dinner and overnight on board.
Day 3: Cong Do – Thien Canh Son – Hon Gai Harbor – Hanoi (B/L)
The last day of the tour will start with fresh air and gentle breezes in the bay that definitely bring you the coolest atmosphere while having breakfast on board and then visit Thien Canh Son Cave to discover the history of forming grottoes due to the geological changes millions of years ago. Right here, you can also participate in swimming or kayaking for relaxation before cruising to the harbor back to Hanoi.
