Package TourVietnamCroisieres: Hanoi and Halong Discovery Tour - 4 Days / 3 Nights

Hanoi - Halong - Hanoi

Experience the contrasts of Northern Vietnam from the charming chaos of Hanoi to the relaxing waters of Halong Bay. This four day Discovery Tour is a fabulous introduction to the country and its culture.

Begin your journey in the capital city with a city tour. Visit the Temple of Literature and the masoleum of Ho Chi Minh for a touch of history before heading through the busy Old Quarter by pedal-powered cyclo. The remainder of the day is at your leisure to enjoy the colorful capital. We suggest relaxing with a coffee at a local lakeside café and marvel at the seemingly endless stream of motorbikes.

Leave the buzz of the city behind as you travel east to the Gulf of Tonkin and board a traditional wooden junk boat. An overnight cruise on Halong Bay is the perfect opportunity to truly appreciate the beautiful waters, spending the hours sailing among limestone cliffs and turquoise seas. Stop to visit a mysterious cave, swim in the warm waters and feast on fresh seafood.
