Half-day Glamours of Ha Long Bay from Ha Long
Pick-up at your hotel. Discover Ha Long Bay, a body of water of approximately 1,500 square kilometers in North Vietnam with 120 kilometers of coastline in the Gulf of Tonkin. Ha Long Bay means "Bay of the Descending Dragon" in the local language. The bay consists of a dense cluster of 3000 monolithic limestone islands, each topped with thick jungle vegetation, which rise spectacularly from the ocean. Several of the islands are hollow and feature enormous caves, while others support floating villages of fishermen, who ply the shallow waters for some of the over 200 species of fish and 450 different kinds of mollusks.
Our tour today starts with a dreamy cruise amongst the thousands of limestone mountains. Cruising through the emerald water past the Dog Stone and the Burning Incense Islet. Afterwards, will visit the Fighting-Rooster Islets and the Heaven Grotto (Thien Cung Cave) to see the beautiful stalagmites and stalactites within. After the tour, we will return you to your hotel.
