Tour overview

Ha Long Bay is about 200km from Hanoi and can be reached after 3 hour journey by road from Hanoi. From the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin, 3,000 islands rise steeply from the water to create and extraordinarily dramatic seascape. Said to be where the “dragon descends into the sea”, Ha Long Bay is one of the most spectacular and romantic of all Vietnam’s physical wonders. To explore the Bay fully takes 2-3 days by boat, but one day excursion provides a good taste of life around the rugged shores of the North. There are numerous grottoes and caves, some of which stretch more than 2km and are Ha Long Bay is now a World Heritage Site and this honor brings with its new commitment to maintaining the quality of this tourist attraction.
