Dragon's Nest Discovery 1 day

Hanoi, Lan Ha, Hanoi

This trip allows us to get a deep appreciation for this beautiful bay. We boat through the spectacular Lan Ha Bay and visit some lively fishing villages. Join us to experience Lan Ha Bay.

Morning: We pick you up at your hotel between 7:15am to 7:30am. Our exciting drive takes us through the Red River Delta's scenery to Cat Ba Island – the largest island in Lan Ha Bay, home to thousands of little limestone islands scattered around. We take a boat which glides among the spectacular peaks. This gives us time to appreciate the wonders of Lan Ha Bay.

Afternoon: We can then enjoy great food on board our boat. This is followed by a leisurely kayaking ride to get up close with stunning limestone outcrops and through serene waters. Nothing compares to the misty atmosphere and emerald waters of Lan Ha Bay.

We find some fishing villages encircled by towering rock formations, and we are warmly welcomed into the home of a fishing family. It's a wonderful glimpse into the lives of the bay's fishermen, before we leave the bay behind and head back to Hanoi, arriving around 6 pm. (Lunch is included)
