The Lan Ha Bay Day Cruise is a fantastic option for anyone looking at any Vietnam Group Tours. Although Lan Ha Bay is part of Halong Bay, we embark from a different pier, meaning that the drive from Hanoi is shorter and that you get longer to spend on the boat; about 8 hours of cruising time.

Starting from Hanoi in the morning at about 7:30 am, the Lan Ha Bay Day Cruise gets you from Hanoi to Lan Ha Bay and back within 12 hours, returning to the capital about 7:00 pm. Our luxury van provides you with style and comfort on the highway to and from the Halong Bay area, giving you the most leisure time possible on its tranquil waters.

The Lan Ha Bay Day Cruise offers travellers a great time-saving alternative to an overnight stay in Halong Bay. Along with the shorter journey time is a more condensed array of activities designed to give you a similar itinerary to an overnight boat. Activities such as kayaking, swimming, a professional cooking demonstration, a delicious lunch and a mini party with wine are scheduled in moderation with relaxing cruising time to give you a concise tour of the bay.

This Lan Ha Bay Day 1 Day tour is a luxury cruise tour with the luxury Limousine
