Dragon's Nest Adventure 3 days & 2 nights

Day 1: Hanoi - Cat Ba Island - Lan Ha Bay - Overnight Stay aboard

We will journey through the early morning streets of Hanoi on the way to Cat Ba Island. Along the way, we'll make a brief stop before boarding a ferry to our destination. Upon reaching the wharf at Cai Beo, we'll step aboard a beautiful and traditionally-decorated Vietnamese junk boat, blending traditional decor with modern comforts. Enjoy a delicious seafood lunch prepared by our skilled onboard chef as we set sail into the enchanting waters of Lan Ha Bay

In the afternoon, we’ll venture off the boat to explore the Ho Ba Ham. This hidden gem, known as the "three tunnel lakes," is a scenic and secluded spot nestled within Halong Bay. Ho Ba Ham boasts shallow lagoons embraced by towering limestone cliffs, accessible by kayak only through low-ceiling tunnels.

Weather permitting, we’ll be able to go for a swim in the clear and emerald waters. As the day comes to an end, we'll leisurely cruise along the bay, witnessing the sunset painting the landscape with warm colour. This evening’s dinner is sure to be memorable, as we will dine on the deck of the boat. Afterwards, we have the option to try squid fishing (seasonal) or kayak amidst the bioluminescent plankton in the bay. (Lunch and dinner included)

Day 2: Lan Ha Bay - Halong Bay - Bai Tu Long Bay - Overnighgt Stay aboard

As the sun gently rises over the tranquil waters of Lan Ha Bay, we awaken to another day of adventure. Enjoy a light breakfast before boarding our day boat bound for the neighboring marvel of Halong Bay. Renowned as a UNESCO World Heritage site, Halong Bay's breathtaking beauty is unmatched. Navigate through a maze of stunning limestone islands, karsts, and caves, immersing ourselves in the spectacular scenery. A leisurely kayak ride offers a close-up to the majestic landscape.

Our journey continues towards Bai Tu Long Bay, where a different route awaits us. As the day draws to a close, we return to our overnight boat, where we gather on the sundeck to try our hand at making traditional Vietnamese spring rolls and other delicious dishes. Savor the flavors of Vietnam as we dine under the stars and amidst these extraordinary landscapes. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included)

Day 3: Lan Ha Bay - Viet Hai Village - The Floating Village of Beo - Hanoi

Awaken to the gentle light of sunrise, offering a serene start to the day. Choose to embrace the tranquility with a session of Tai Chi or embark on a kayaking adventure to explore secluded lagoons, observing the local fishermen as they go about their daily life. Following this, we enjoy a light and peaceful breakfast aboard the boat.

Our journey continues with an exploration of Viet Hai, a former fishing village nestled amidst lush jungle and surrounded by the towering peaks of Cat Ba National Park. Here, we'll have the opportunity to stretch our legs as we cycle along verdant limestone mountains, navigate through the village, and perhaps venture on a hike into the heart of the national park.

Next, we'll board our awaiting boat to float through the enchanting floating village of Beo. Witness the traditional fishing practices of the villagers as they live atop emerald waters, surrounded by magnificent limestone karst formations. Around noon we leave the bay behind and commence our journey back to Hanoi, arriving at your hotel around 5pm. (Breakfast and lunch are included)
