Nearby bustling Hanoi, you’ll experience Halong Bay's less visited (and more sustainable) twin, Lan Ha Bay and the Cat Ba Island Archipelago. You’ll take a ferry to Cat Ba Island and then make your way by boat to Lan Ha Bay. Along the way, you’ll visit the Cannon Fort and admire spectacular views from on high stop and visit Trung Trang cave and the surrounding area known locally as the “Silver and Gold Treasury”. We’ll cruise through Lan Ha Bay, where you’ll choose to swim, kayak or just relax on the island’s sandy beach.

In the early afternoon, we'll be picked-up and take a short trip up the mountain to see the Cannon Fort and marvel at a spectacular view of the island.

Day 2: Cat Ba island to Lan Ha Bay to Hanoi
Get ready by 6:30 for an early pick-up at your hotel in Cat Ba Town and head to Beo pier to board the boat. You’ll enjoy some coffee or tea while we head over and drop anchor at the Caves of Light and Dark. As the sun rises, we’ll serve breakfast so you can look over the most beautiful, peaceful sea that belongs to both Lan Ha Bay and Halong Bay. Once we’ve had our fill and have some energy to expend, we’ll explore the area by kayak to really immerse ourselves in this amazing location.
In the late morning we’ll move our boat to Ba Trai Dao and have some fun with the boat’s high dive, swim around or just laze around on the sandy beaches. At noon we’ll get back on the boat for lunch and then head over to a quick trip to Monkey Island. In the early afternoon, we’ll head back to Hanoi by local shuttle bus, which will drop you off at your hotel or other points around Hanoi’s Old Quarter between 19:00 - 19:30 pm.
