    What to Expect
    After getting picked up from your hotel, embark on the 3.5-hour bus ride through the countryside of the Red River Delta to Halong City. As you ride by, observe the water buffalo, paddy fields, and farmers as they go about their daily lives. Arrive in Halong City around noon and board a traditional wooden junk to cruise to the center of the bay. Enjoy a seafood lunch (vegetarian available), as the boat takes off. Take photos of natural formations such as Fighting Cocks, Incense Burner, and Duck, to catch a quick swim.

    Stop for a trip in a bamboo row boat or kayak to cruise around Ba Hang Floating Village. Keep floating to an often frequented cave, Thien Cung, also known as Heaven Palace Grotto. Explore chambers adorned with stalactites and stalagmites of all types. Once you are done rowing or kayaking, board the junk back to your departure point. In Halong harbor, a vehicle will be waiting to bring you back to your hotel.
