Hanoi & Halong Bay Itinerary
Days 1-2 Hanoi
Tune in to the buzz of Hanoi, as bikes, tuk-tuks and cyclos whizz by. Travel to the spot where the legendary Ho Chi Minh declared Vietnam’s independence in 1945. Visit a university originally built in honour of Confucius, before refuelling at a local restaurant for some divine Vietnamese flavour. Explore the famous Old Quarter, and revel in the hustle and bustle that defines this city by night.
ACCOM: Hotel - 2
Day 3 Halong Bay
Although the term ‘eight wonder of the world’ is fast becoming a major travel-cliché – using it to describe Halong Bay is probably the most accurate description. This place is epic. And what better way to enjoy it than from the comfort of a boat, cruising from grotto to secluded grotto, whilst enjoying a feast on board. Anyone feeling more energetic can dive in for a swim, snorkel or even a kayak.
ACCOM: Overnight boat - 1
Day 4 Hanoi
Awake to the tranquil beauty of the bay, where an early morning swim in the warm waters is the best way to earn breakfast. In the afternoon, return to Hanoi and prepare to get swept back up into the arms of this pulsating city.
