Situated in the Tonkin Golf, Halong bay is one of the most beautiful world's natural wonders - a bay with more than 3,000 islands and islets, which time, wind and waves have sculpted into fantastic shapes. The best way to appreciate this magical scene is from a boat, cruising between these karsts cliffs, which loom like fairy-tale castles, complete with rocky spires and hidden caves. The bay is dotted with tiny islands, pristine sandbanks on the turquoise water providing an excellent backdrop for swimming or just lazing about on the junk boat.

En route you will pass fields of busy workers farming their rice fields using traditional methods of cultivation, arriving to Halong City at about 12:00.
