    Your guide and driver will meet you at the hotel then set out on a 2.5-hour drive to the UNESCO World Heritage Site: Halong Bay.

In the afternoon, cruise around some of Halong’s many islands, including Dinh Huong and Ga Choi. Along the way visit one of the bay’s three largest caves (Thien Cung, Dau Go or Sung Sot). Stop at an island cove with sheltered white-sand beaches. Weather permitting; take a dip in the warm waters of the Gulf of Tonkin. Pass the night on-board lulled to sleep by the gentle rocking of calm waters.

Some of the sanctuaries and tombs have survived the years and can still be seen today. Apart from the historical interest, the area is also one of astounding natural beauty with limestone peaks whose splendor is often said to surpass that of Halong Bay.

Trang An is a complex of cultural, historical and natural heritage sites, recognized by UNESCO in 2014, as the world's first mixed heritage of Vietnam. Limestone hills surround a peaceful river which passes through a series of caves (one which takes 15-minutes to pass through in darkness).

    Jordan Vogt-Roberts – the film director of Kong: Skull Island once said: "The world will pay attention because they will see how beautiful this place is; they will travel, discover and fall in love with it like the way that I did".
