The Halong Bay is formed with 1600 limestone bigger islands and almost the same amount of islets the take a territory of over 1500 km2.

This UNESCO world heritage site offers a wide range of biodiversity and the surrealistic landscapes, forms and scenery have indeed featured in many films. The best way to explore the Halong Bay is to take at least Overnight Halong Bay Cruise from Hanoi which is only 170km away because it offers the best relation of high day tour quality, fair price and opportunity to spend an amazing night in the mysterious atmosphere of Halong Bay.

Once we collect you from your hotel - we pick-up from any hotel located in the central part of Hanoi (if you are located somewhere else, just come by yourself to any bigger hotel in the center, so we will collect you from there for the cruise). Our drive to the Halong Bay will take approximately 3 hours by luxury comfortable air-conditioned bus. The trip from Hanoi to Halong Bay for the overnight cruise is a kind of day tours by itself because you will discover less developed areas on the way and it's good sightseeing to understand Vietnam more.

We arrive at the Bai Chay / Halong pier at about 11:30 AM and then we will have a short bay tour which's also the transfer by tender to our big cruise boat. Here, on board, you will enjoy our Welcome Drink and get cruise briefing to check in to the cruise boat cabins and then we start our day and night cruise in Halong Bay. At 13:00 in the extraordinary scenery while sailing among the endless islands of Halong Bay we will be served with lunch and you can choose between deluxe Vietnamese and International set menu. Right after lunch, the massage service is available and it will be optionally available throughout whole the cruise.

We sail across the calm sea finally reach at about 14.30 the Ti Top Island. Here, by Ti Top island you can enjoy swimming, relaxing on the beach and hiking to the top of the mountain on the island in search for amazing views and photo points. Water and towels supplied and we will keep o the island for about 45 minutes.

Located in the center of Halong Bay archipelago, just 8 kilometers from the Southeast of Bai Chay Harbor, Ti Top Island is commonly recognized as one of the most scenic sites by the Halong visitors. The island's name Ti Top is given by the most famous hero of Vietnam, President Ho Chi Minh, after the Soviet astronaut German Titov when he visited the island for the first time. So standing out from other attractions of Halong Bay, the island does not only offers unforgettable landscapes but it also possesses an incredibly beautiful white sand beach where you can spend some time feeling yourself in a paradise. Even the Ti Top beach is not a big beach like many other beaches of Halong Bay islands, but it is well known for its special atmosphere, transparent turquoise water, soft white sand, and tropical surroundings what makes it a perfect place to refresh your energy. At 15:15 we start back from the Ti Top beach to our cruise boat and sail for approximately 45 minutes to our next destination and one of the most famous attractions of Halong - the Bat Cave.

Bat Cave (Hang Doi) is a typical example of the erosive power of nature. Over time and weather, cracks and fissures in the limestone formations were slowly eroded to create the karstic cave. At the time of low tide, adventurous kayakers can enter Bat Cave, but paddling a kayak along Bat Cave depend also on the weather and you must wear life jackets and better to be accompanied by a local guide to avoid dangerous situations. We arrive at about 16:15 and anchor nearby the Bat Cave. There are two program options to choose from for the Overnight Halong Bay Cruise participants. The first option is a 40-minute kayaking trip to explore the nearby Bat Cave and lagoon as well as the surrounding waters. Kayaking is an extra cost of 10 USD per person, including a bottle of water for each kayak trip participant. Another option is to take a trip to the biggest floating fishing village in Halong Bay. We will cruise Halong to the village on the junk boat and take a short photo tour around the village for about 20 minutes.

Next, at about 18:30 we are approaching the Luon Bo area and anchor here for the overnight stop. Luon Cave is situated on Bo Hon Island, sit it is just approx. 14km toward the south from Bai Chay and just a mile away from our next attraction - Surprise Cave. We are not visiting Luon Cave, but it's good to know it has the shape of an arc which is 60 meters long and 3-4 meters high, depending on the tide and the water level. Being quite low the cave is accessible by tiny boats and kayaks only. During the high tide, travelers have to stoop down to paddle gently through the Luon Cave. Halong Bay is commonly recognized for its wide cave systems and the Halong Bay does have a lot of different caves very similar to the arc-shaped Luon Cave. Luon Cave has counted among the best places in Halong Bay for kayak trips. If you are fun of kayaking, you cannot escape experience to paddle through the Luon Cave. Beside the kayaking, rowing is the other interesting option for those who dream to discover the Luon Cave. Sitting as a passenger on a small bamboo boat rowed by a local, tourists can observe a wide diversity of different plants like ferns, cycads, Benjamin’s fig trees as well as amazingly beautiful orchids. If are a lucky person, you may even get extraordinary photos with mischievous monkeys jigging on the cliffs. Luon Bo area is an amazing creature of nature and there are not so many places like this left in the word.

Situated inside of the Bo Hon Island, in the center of Halong Bay, Surprise Cave is commonly known as the most interesting cave in this charming bay. Most of the names of well-known attractions of Halong Bay having roots from legends and stories. The Surprise Cave also have own story of the name. Initially, this cave had the name of 'Grotto de la Surprise' (The cave of Surprise in French), but now people cut the name just to the 'Surprise Cave'. It because when you enter the cave for the first time, what you usually pronounce is something very emotional like 'wow', 'stunning' or 'incredible”. This your first time when you step into the cave it looks to be very narrow and a king of mini-cave, but then you walk forward and with each your step the cave become surprisingly bigger and bigger. Finally, a narrow cave becomes a gigantic, very spacious and enormous cave. Those visitors with a creative ability can easily imagine the enormous theater created by the power of Nature. The cave's ceiling is decorated with stalactites like colorful chandeliers and the floor consist of rocks in different strange shapes - some rocks remind you an elephant, horse or tree, leaves, or flowers. As deeper you are walking into the Surprise Cave as the more interesting it becomes inside.
