Full description
On this 3-day excursion, discover the incredible landscape and sights of the Ninh Binh province and enjoy an overnight stay in an eco-lodge. Then, ride your shuttle bus to Tuan Chau Island and take a luxury boat for a tour around Ha Long bay and spend the night on board.

Sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery on your shuttle bus as you make your way to the Trang An Ecolodge in Ninh Binh. Savor the tranquility of the lodge’s amazing location - surrounded by mountains and rivers. After check-in, head off by bike or on foot to see the local sights.  

Visit the ancient city of Hao Lu or climb to the Hang Mua viewpoint, for a breathtaking panorama over the limestone mountains and rice fields of the Tam Coc Valley. In the afternoon, come back to the lodge and relax by the pool or doze in the peaceful gardens. 

Rise bright and early and enjoy a delicious breakfast before leaving for Tuan Chau Island with your shuttle bus. After arriving at the dock, take a small boat to reach your luxury cruise ship, where you will be welcomed aboard with a drink and a refreshing cold towel. 

After check-in, enjoy lunch in the onboard restaurant as the boat sails up the winding canals on its way to Ha Long Bay. Then, hop into a canoe or a bamboo boat to explore the dazzling white limestone karsts, emerald green waters, and dark mystery of the Dark and Light Caves.

Back on deck, unwind and admire the magnificent sunset over the Gulf of Tonkin from the pool or at the bar. Then, choose from a range of activities: join a traditional cooking class, get a massage, or work out in the high deck gym with panoramic views.

After dinner, you can enjoy the landscape of the bay at night from the top deck, relax with romantic music, or sip refreshing drinks at the bar. You can also try your luck at squid fishing, watch a movie, enjoy a spa treatment, or simply relax in your room.

Wake up to an early breakfast before stopping off at a charming local fishing village. After returning to the boat, finish your trip with a hearty brunch while the ship sails back to the harbor. Wave goodbye to the boat from the port and ride in comfort back to Hanoi.

A nice tour that we can recommend. We particularly liked the Halong boat tour - the ship with a pool and great rooms in beautiful surroundings. Accommodation and activities in Ninh Binh were good. However, the longer transfers in a short time should be considered.
