Hanoi, biking tour
Before beginning your Vietnam tour, experience life on a traditional Vietnamese sailing vessel, called a junk. Steeped in rich history, these romantic vessels have been the homes of both merchants and warriors since the time of China’s Han Dynasty. Your home for a night, this vessel has preserved its authentic heritage, adding modern conveniences and a professional crew. During the river cruise you have the opportunity to take a light trek to a nearby summit for a panoramic view of the bay and kayak in a scenic lagoon. You’ll also have the opportunity to stretch your legs with a 3-mile walk. You'll never forget the sunset and sunrise onboard our colorful junk, in the incredible setting of Halong Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This extension also includes a day trip from Hanoi to visit Tay Phuong and Thay Pagodas.

Only available with the Air Inclusive Package. 

Single supplement: $195

Day 1 - Depart the U.S. and begin your flight over the Pacific Ocean

Depart from the U.S. and Travel to Vietnam. The particulars of your arrival are detailed with your flight itinerary and airline tickets.

Day 2 - Arrive in Hanoi

Upon arrival in Hanoi, claim your luggage and clear customs. Your VBT representative will be holding a VBT sign and will help you transfer to your Hanoi hotel.

VBT provides you with City Information in your Final Travel Booklet that includes information and recommendations on what to see and do in Hanoi during your stay.

Please note: This transfer has been pre-arranged by VBT and does not require direct payment. Please confirm with the driver that this transfer has been pre-paid—if the driver requests funds from you, this is not your scheduled transfer and you should not take it.

Day 3 - Tour Tay Phuong Pagoda

After breakfast, meet your VBT representative in the lobby and transfer by minibus to Tay Phuong Pagoda, about 50 minutes outside of Hanoi. Admire the pagoda during a  3-mile walk. Next, continue on to nearby Thay Pagoda, first built in the 11th century. Vietnam's famous water puppetry was created on a stage in the village lake. Drive back to Hanoi in the early afternoon.

Day 4 - Halong Bay Excursion

After breakfast at your Hanoi hotel, meet your VBT representative in the lobby and transfer to Halong Bay (approximately 3 hours). Board the junk and check in to your cabin before eating lunch on board as we set sail.

One of the world's natural wonders, and a common backdrop for films set in VietnamHalong Bay boasts over 1,000 breathtaking islands, resting  along the coast of Bai Chay Beach. A variety of interesting, independant natural environments all exist side-by-side here, in this beautiful region of northern Vietnam. During your cruise, you'll have a chance to hike up to a lookout point to take in a splendid panoramic view of the bay. You’ll also get the chance to visit a small fishing village and to kayak in a scenic lagoon over coral reefs. Tonight, admire the sunset as you dine on board the junk.
