Hanoi by itself is very welcoming to anybody who takes the chance to explore it. The Halong Bay is a jewel of this beautiful city. Spend an entire day exploring this awesome bay with this tour.

Declared as a World Heritage site by the UNESCO, Ha Long Bay is one of Vietnam’s most spectacular natural attractions, which was declared a World Natural Heritage site by UNESCO in 1994. Located around 200 km out of Hanoi, the bay covers an area of more than 1500 square kilometers and is dotted with thousands of limestone islands, which are rising from the clear green waters like sculptures carved by the Gods. Come and see that Vietnamese call “the descending dragon”
