Bai Tu Long 2 Day Cruise Itinerary

Day 1


Meet your guide early at your hotel for the 3.5 hour bus trip to the harbour.

Board your traditional Ha Long junkboat, check into your cabin and enjoy a traditional Vietnamese lunch while you cruise through the majestic limestone karsts of Halong Bay.

In the afternoon, visit Luon cave by bamboo boat or kayak and admire the stalactites and stalacmites. Enjoy the quiet space and pure air and f you are lucky, you will have the chance to see some monkeys on islands.

Cruise on to the Soi Sim island or Titov Beach in beautiful Lan Ha Bay (depending on the weather). Spend some time swimming and relaxing on the beach, below the magnificent rocky cliffs. Or hike the cliffs themselves for a panorama view of Halong Bay.

Head back to the boat for some free time and a massage if you have pre-booked one. Before the sun sets, learn a few secrets of Vietnamese cuisine during a cooking demonstration with the boat staff.

Enjoy a family style dinner of traditional Vietnamese dishes and get to know your fellow shipmates. Once the stars come out, why not try your hand at squid fishing!

Day 2


Start your day with Tai Chi on the deck before enjoying breakfast as your cruise to Sung Sot Cave. Take a smaller boat to the island and walk up about 100 steps to the cave entrance.

Admire views over the bay from this vantage point and then explore the depths of the cave, one of thousands in the bay.

Have a final group lunch while cruising back among the limestone pillars to the pier and then wave goodbye to beautiful Halong Bay.

Arrive back in Hanoi by bus in the early evening.

Lily’s suggestion:

If you like the idea of spending a full day in Bai Tu Long, then why not book a 3-day cruise? We promise it’s worth it!
