This journey will bring you to a new side of Ha Long Bay. Starting from the Red River out of Hanoi city, you will cycle to the famous UNESCO world heritage site of Ha Long Bay. You'll be cruising on crystal clear water to beautiful Cat Ba island and visit one of the world's biosphere reserves, Cat Ba National Park. It's a beautiful green jungle with unmatched scenery everywhere. 

Spend the night at a hotel with exquisite views of the bay, before cycling along the coast to your next boat ride. This time it'll be a sampan, a flat-bottomed Chinese style wooden boat. It's perfect for a visit to a salt marsh, mangroves and Thien Long cave which was only discovered in 1998.

The tour ends with a ferry ride and vehicle transfer to Hanoi. All in all, it's a jam-packed three days of exquisite scenery and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
