Halong Bay Junk Cruise Itinerary
Cast away on a traditional junk boat and set sail through hundreds of limestone karsts at stunning Halong Bay. Relax on deck, enjoy delicious meals and fall asleep to lapping waves.
Day 1 Hanoi/Halong Bay
Journey through the early morning streets of Hanoi on the way to Halong Bay, seeing steam rising from roadside eateries as breakfast is prepared and motorbikes weaving their way through the steadily increasing traffic. Leaving the city behind, drive through fascinating countryside to the dock where this Halong Bay adventure truly starts. Climb aboard a traditional junk boat – with its beautiful woodwork and beaming crew – and venture out into emerald waters of the bay. Open water soon disappears as the boat glides through often misty waters and past limestone peaks jutting dramatically out of the water. Sit down to a mouth-watering lunch and take in the scenery of what is often referred to as the Eight Wonder of the World. Then it’s time to relax up on deck or get active with swimming or exploring the nearby grottos and caves by kayak. Another delicious meal awaits after the sun goes down then sit under the beautiful starry skies or perhaps do some night fishing before drifting off to sleep to the sounds of gentle waves lapping at the hull.

Day 2 Halong Bay/Hanoi
Spend the morning exploring secluded areas of the bay - perhaps swim in the cool, green waters or see the sights by kayak. Around noon the junk returns to the dock and the journey towards Hanoi begins, where this adventure concludes on arrival in fabulous Hanoi city.
