Private Tour: 4-Day Hanoi Highlights and Halong Bay Cruise

Take in the sights of Hanoi and enjoy an overnight cruise on Halong Bay on a four-day excursion from Hanoi. Visit Hanoi’s market and Ho Chi Minh sights, and spend the night on the exquisite waters of Halong Bay. This private tour ensures you’ll receive personal attention from your expert guide. Choose from three-star or four-star hotel accommodation for all three nights, including one night on board a luxury junk on Halong Bay.

Your four-day immersion in northern Vietnam takes in Hanoi’s highlights, from bustling markets to Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum, with time to explore the sights of Hanoi on your own. After a scenic drive further east, relax as you cruise the calm waters of Halong Bay. You have your choice of three-star or 4-star accommodation, including a night spent on board a luxury junk (type of sailing vessel)!

Day 1: Hanoi (L)
Your Hanoi highlights tour begins with pickup from your hotel for a visit to the Ho Chi Minh complex, including the former leader’s stilt home, presidential palace, museum and mausoleum. After lunch at a local Vietnamese restaurant, visit Hanoi’s bustling Dong Xuan Market, where stalls are crowded with everything from clothing and vegetables to whitegoods and live chickens. You’ll also see the 13th-century temple of Hgoc Son on its tiny island on Hoan Kiem Lake, and take a one-hour cyclo (bicycle taxi) tour through the Old Quarter’s narrow streets — an essential Hanoi experience.

*Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum closed on Mondays and Fridays. On these days, visitors will tour Hoa Lo Prison.
** Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum will be closed from September 6, 2013 until November 5, 2013 for maintenance. During this time visitors will tour Hoa Lo Prison instead.

Accommodation: Authentic Hanoi Hotel (three-star) or Lan Vien Hotel (four-star)

Day 2: Hanoi (B)
After breakfast at your hotel, take a one-hour drive to Tam Dao in the Chat Dau Valley to visit a moon bear (Asian black bear) rescue center. Moon bears are highly sought after for their bile, used in traditional Chinese medicine, and you’ll see the rehabilitated animals’ new 30-acre (12-hectare) home in Tam Dao National Park. Returning to Hanoi, you’ll have the afternoon to explore the city at your own pace.

Accommodation: Authentic Hanoi Hotel (three-star) or Lan Vien Hotel (four-star)

Day 3: Hanoi – Halong Bay (B, L, D)
After an early breakfast at your hotel, relax on the three-hour drive to Halong Bay. Lunch will be served while you cruise the bay on board a comfortable junk (converted fishing boat). Admire the limestone caves, rocky outcrops and silky waters, and take the opportunity to sunbathe on the junk’s top deck or go for a kayak on the bay. Enjoy a seafood dinner prepared by your onboard chef, before spending the night aboard your cruiser.

Accommodation: Jewel of the Bay (three-star) or Bhaya Cruise (four-star)

Day 4: Halong Bay – Hanoi (B, L)
Wake up at sea, and take a swim before breakfast, then cruise to Surprise Cave and Halong Bay’s main harbor. After lunch, relax on the three-hour drive back to your Hanoi hotel, where the tour ends.
