Full description
Make this Swan Cruise the highlight of your dream vacation in Vietnam! Start your day with pick-up from your hotel in the Old Quarter of Hanoi and depart to Halong Bay. At 12:30, your cruise departs from the pier and sails along Bai Tu Long Bay. From the deck of the boat you will be able to watch the beautiful limestone seascape emblematic of the area. Get amazing views of Teapot Island, Blockhouse Islet, Goat Head Islet, and other iconic sights.

Have a delicious lunch on board as you cruise through the waters. At 2:00 PM, you'll arrive at Vung Vieng Village - take a row boat to go deep into the village and learn how the local people live on the ocean. Interact with them and visit a local fish farm - this is interactive, immersive experience is sure to be the highlight of your trip to Vietnam!

Continue your cruise to the Cong Do area, and visit the mysterious Thien Canh Son Cave. This cave is a unique place to visit - scattered within the cave complex are stalactites and stalagmites, each of which have been likened to objects that have developed their own stories. Colorful lights create a dramatic interior scene that you'll never forget! Then, enjoy a sunset party on the boat and join in a cooking demonstration to learn some traditional Vietnamese dishes. On your cruise back to the harbour, pass by Dragon Islet and relax on board. In the evening, you'll be dropped off back to your hotels for some rest.
