Lan Ha Bay Day Trip From Hanoi

 Hanoi, Lan Ha bay, Hanoi
 Code: VNG13

Overview

For anyone looking to save time while still taking in the full magnificence of Lan Ha Bay (the southern part of Halong Bay) on a Vietnam Group Tour, the Lan Ha Bay Day Trip From Hanoi is a wonderful option. We save time by offering a compressed itinerary for customers; one that still features important aspects of Halong Bay cruises, but with less travel time between different areas.

We begin at about 7:30 am from Hanoi and get back at around 8:00 pm. This means that the Lan Ha Bay Day Trip From Hanoi saves about half of the journey time as it takes to Halong Bay, with a generous total of about 8 hours in Lan Ha Bay. For the short time that we do spend on the road, we have a very comfortable limousine bus/ van so that you can ride with no unwanted discomforts.

On the Lan Ha Bay Day Trip From Hanoi, we focus on efficiency to let you soak up as much of the magic of Lan Ha Bay as possible.
