Lying on the south of Ha Long Bay, Lan Ha Bay shares similar geographical landscapes with 300 karst islands. Lan Ha Bay is known for its deep blue water, many natural white sandy beaches and unique biodiversity that is home to Cat Ba langurs.
2D1N boating Lan Ha and Ha Long bay will help you feel both areas while enjoying kayaking, swimming near white sandy beaches. Our boat has a spacious sundeck with the maximum capacity of only 14 people, allowing you to have ample time in solitude as well as in social interactions.
The guide will show you the remote areas of Northern Halong Bay, you get to explore a labyrinth of limestone cliffs that rise out of the sea in Lan Ha Bay and paddle through mystical caves to discover deserted lagoons and beautiful sandy beaches. At night, paddle out in your kayak to seek out the natural phenomenon of bioluminescent plankton in the sea (depends on which time of the month).

DAY 1. THE HERITAGE JOURNEY
At 8:00 AM, get on Daiichi bus to head to Cat Ba Island. During 3.5 hours on the bus, notice the change when we cross Dinh Vu - Lach Huyen port, the strategic project that helps bring Cat Ba Island closer to Northern Vietnam and beyond.
Geared up for a change when you reach Cat Ba Town. From here, you will be transferred to our boat awaiting you in tranquil Lan Ha Bay .
Enjoy a tasty lunch that ensures you are full and energized, then get back to the sundeck to chill while our captain moves the boat to some nice sandy beaches. In the afternoon, you can swim, take a kayak to venture out or try jumping from the boat and feel the adrenaline rushing in.
Appreciate a glorious sunset approaching. Take a shower, have dinner with chill music and have conversations with newfound friends, or try squid fishing at the front of the boat.
At night, gear up for a unique kayaking experience to sea plankton. As tiny marine creatures, plankton flows along with ocean current and radiates a magical glow in the dark. Amidst the mystical vibe of Lan Ha Bay, this would be an unforgettable experience.
DAY 2. BACK TO HANOI
Enjoy breakfast in the fresh air and peaceful beauty of the Bay then go to the top deck - catch a perfect time to take some of your best snapshots of the day.
The final stage of your trip is to be taken through the mysterious caves and among the remote islets via kayak at Dau Be & Ba Ham Area. The break-taking beauty of this World Heritage region will certainly impress you.
Have a tasty lunch on the boat before being transferred back to the harbour. When in town, our bus awaits to lead you to Hanoi.
Note: If you plan to go to Ninh Binh instead of Hanoi, please let us know and we can arrange a more suitable schedule.
