Day 1 : Hanoi – Cat Ba island – Lan Ha Bay
Included: Lunch, Dinner
Meet our experienced guide early on your first morning for a quick tour briefing and then a leisurely drive across the Red River Delta to Hai Phong city for cruising Lan Ha Bay 2 days. Spend the couple of hours in the car taking in the scenery as you pass locals going about their daily business. We stop at Hai Phong and enjoy a journey by Hydrofoil before we continue on to Ben Beo port.
We reach the port of Ben Beo at midday and board our vessel. The boat will be your accommodation for the night, so check in to your cabin and hear a bit about the itinerary. You will be served a welcome cocktail and enjoy some wonderful views of the bay and waters that await you on this cruise of Lan Ha Bay.
Once you have settled in and got your bearings, join us for a delicious lunch on board. Freshly prepared by our onboard chefs you can eat a feast whilst you enjoy views of famous Monkey Island and the Ben Bao floating settlement. After a while we reach Hang Ca – here you can take a little tour of some stunning lagoons and hidden caves.
As dusk approaches we stop for the evening near Ba Trai Dao island where you can jump into the inviting waters and take a swim. Once you have worked up an appetite, return on board and join us for a great evening – starting with some cocktails as you take in the sunset and on to a fantastic evening meal in the restaurant. Later, stay by the bar or try your hand at squid fishing.
Day 2 : Fish farm – Fishing with local – Cooking class – Hanoi
Included: Breakfast, Lunch
Rise this morning to the sounds of nature. We pay an early morning visit to a fish farm where we watch the locals bringing in their catch. Here you will have the chance to take pictures of the floating village- houses on stilts – and meet several generations of fishing families.
Next it’s your turn to try your hand at fishing like a local. We wish you luck as you try to catch squid and other fish with traditional fishing methods.
(There exists an option to try some canoeing in the Lan Ha Bay, if you wish to try this option just request it with your tour guide)
Boarding the boat again we head back the way, past Monkey Island and the Ben Beo village again. Then, unfortunately it’s time to check out, settle your account and head back to the quay. As your journey finishes you will proceed to take a cooking lesson from a master chef on the deck before you disembark and head back to Hanoi where your accompanied escort ends.
