Full description

On this 3-day excursion, discover the incredible landscape and sights of the Ninh Binh province and enjoy an overnight stay in an eco-lodge. Then, ride your shuttle bus to Tuan Chau Island and take a luxury boat for a tour around Ha Long bay and spend the night on board.

Sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery on your limousine bus as you make your way to Ninh Binh. Savor the tranquility of the lodge’s amazing location - surrounded by mountains and rivers.. 

Visit the ancient city of Hoa Lu or climb to the Hang Mua viewpoint, for a breathtaking panorama over the limestone mountains and rice fields of Valley. Enjoy a boat ride to explore Trang An's natural heritage. Check in to the Trang An Ecolodge and head off by bike or on foot to see the local sights, or relax by the pool or in the peaceful gardens. 

Rise bright and early and enjoy a delicious breakfast before leaving for Tuan Chau Island with your shuttle bus. After arriving at the dock, take a small boat to reach your luxury cruise ship, where you will be welcomed aboard with a drink and a refreshing cold towel. 

After check-in, enjoy lunch in the onboard restaurant as the boat sails up the winding canals on its way to Ha Long Bay. Then, hop into a canoe or a bamboo boat to explore the dazzling white limestone karsts, emerald green waters, and dark mystery of the Dark and Light Caves.

Back on deck, unwind, and admire the magnificent sunset over the Gulf of Tonkin from the pool or at the bar. Then, choose from a range of activities: join a traditional cooking class, get a massage, or work out in the high deck gym with panoramic views.

After dinner, you can enjoy the landscape of the bay at night from the top deck, relax with romantic music, or sip refreshing drinks at the bar. You can also try your luck at squid fishing, watch a movie, enjoy a spa treatment, or simply relax in your room.

Wake up to an early breakfast before stopping off at a charming local fishing village. After returning to the boat, finish your trip with a hearty brunch while the ship sails back to the harbor. Wave goodbye to the boat from the port and ride in back to Hanoi at the end of the afternoon.

Excellent trip. Only downgraded to 4star because some of the coaches used were not of highest standard. Would also suggest that a longer stop is required for the hike to the viewpoint on the first day. Only the fit can do both peaks and the cave in an hour.

Would definitely recommend this for anyone looking to explore Ninh Binh & Halong Bay, the kayaking on the cruise was especially our favourite part and the rooms were very nice & clean, excellent service from staff. Our tour guide for Ninh Binh was very good as well.

The tour in Ninh Binh was excelent and very well organized. The overnight stay in Trang An was ok, the place was good however there was no much to do around, if you're looking to disconnect ok. As for the cruise, it was great also very well organized if you enjoy all the activities the price may be worth it.
