Create an itinerary including Hạ Long Bay
Cruise among the conical peaks and karst pillars of Hạ Long Bay, a World Heritage Site-honored scenic seascape of various limestone landforms modeled into natural arches and towers by coastal erosion. This site features nearly 1,600 mostly uninhabited islands and islets. Legend has it that this is the place from which a mountain dragon plunged into the sea, crushing the land with his powerful tale and leaving behind a scatter of islets. Go kayaking, explore caves, visit a fishing village, or spend the night in an island bungalow. The extreme popularity of the bay among locals and tourists alike has taken a toll on the natural environment-- sometimes the water is so polluted that it is not suitable for swimming or snorkeling.

  • Beautiful scenery. Extremely friendly cruise via La Regina Royal. Recommended to visit if you're travelling to Hanoi.
  • Breathtaking experience. It was another level all together. We stayed over night in the cruise. We boarded the ship, went to caves, been to ti top island. We had cooking activity in the cruise night. Our cruise was surrounded by the other cruise and the view was breathtaking in the evening. Had all the facilities inside the cruise. It might be very difficult for vegetarians to survive. Need to rely only on Bread Jam.
