Day 1: Hanoi – Halong Bay.

Kickstarting at 9:15 AM, we’ll pick you up from the heart of Hanoi Old Quarter, ready to embark on an exciting journey along the new highway to the Got Ferry Terminal in Cat Hai Town, Haiphong City. Anticipate an arrival around 11:30 AM. En route, you’ll have the chance to experience the Southeast Asia area’s longest and newest bridge. As you arrive, a warm welcome awaits at Azalea Cruise’s lounge, where a special tea treat awaits.

Around 12:00 PM, get ready for a transfer to the Azalea cruise via a tender ride. At 12:15 PM, we’ll extend a hearty welcome as you step onboard, followed by smooth check-in procedures. Savor a Welcome Drink, get familiar with the cruise plans, safety guidelines, and complete the check-in. With all set, the cruise will set sail, commencing your exploration of Halong Bay, one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature.

By 12:40 PM, the Azalea cruise will set a course for Da Chong islet, home to a century-old lighthouse built by the French. Before that, a sumptuous lunch awaits. Post-lunch, we continue our voyage through the Con Vit and Gia Luan islets. These towering limestone karst formations dramatically rise from the sea. This route is lesser-traveled, taking you through Cat Ba Island – Thoi Quyt area – Coc Ngoi islet – and Cua Van village to Ba Trai Dao area.

At 3:00 PM, we’ll head to the serene Ba Trai Dao beach area in Lan Ha Bay, a hidden paradise in Vietnam celebrated for its untouched beaches and stunning landscapes adorned with nearly 400 captivating islands. Unlike the more populous Ha Long Bay, Lan Ha Bay’s islands are lush and relatively petite.

Feel free to indulge in kayaking or a leisurely swim, immersing yourself in the crystal-clear waters of the bay in the Ba Trai Dao area. As the sun starts its descent around 5:30 PM, relish the mesmerizing sunset over the Gulf of Tonkin as we return to the Azalea cruise. Join in a traditional cooking class onboard, where our chef will guide you through crafting delightful Vietnamese dishes. The early evening hours also offer a Happy Hour deal onboard.

For those interested, massage services are available; simply coordinate directly with the Cruise Manager (details can be found in the massage menu).

At 7:30 PM, delight in a lavish deluxe dinner, featuring a delectable spread of local cuisine prepared and presented by our skilled onboard catering team. This intimate dinner setting exudes romance and flavor.

As the clock ticks towards 9:30 PM, soak in the nighttime splendor of the bay from the top deck. Relax with drinks from the bar, try your hand at squid fishing under the stars, catch a movie in the restaurant, or simply unwind. Rest easy knowing you’ll spend the night on board.

Day 2: Halong Bay – Hanoi.

Why not embrace the early hours at 6:00 AM, taking in the bay’s finest moments while engaging in an invigorating Tai Chi session on the sundeck? Following this energizing start, indulge in a light breakfast. With the morning energy coursing through you, prepare for a canoe adventure to explore the area housing the Toi Sang cave.

Around 9:30 AM, return to the Azalea cruise for check-out procedures. Savor a delightful brunch as the cruise heads back.

By approximately 11:35 AM, we’ll reach the quay side in the southern reaches of the bay, where you’ll disembark.

Around 12:10 PM, it’s time to bid farewell at the Got Ferry, marking the end of this remarkable program. We trust you’ve relished every moment with us and wish you a safe onward journey.

At 2:15 PM, you’ll find yourself back at your drop-off point in Hanoi, bringing your adventure to a satisfying close.

Remote treks are always accompanied by a local representative to deal with permits and authorities and manage the porter team.

For some itineraries, the role of tour leader and representative is combined.

Trip routes

Principally, Lotussia Travel requires all the trip associates to know the destinations well by any means of traveling or enquiry to the local suppliers to figure out all the relative details of any trip. For adventure tours such as jungle trekking, mountain hiking, sea kayaking, river rafting or biking, cycling tours, Lotussia Travel will never add any new routes into available schedule until survey or pre-view it.


Lotussia Travel carefully choose all the hotels, guest-houses or home-stays based on service quality, location, and characteristics, doing best to make the accommodations in the remote small places as comfortable as possible. Please bear in mind that hotels in Vietnam might not be in the same standard in other country. Generally hotels in major cities such as Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh city, Hoian, Hue…are much better than hotels and guest-houses in mountainous areas.


Lotussia Travel take dinning as an indispensable experience to clients since it is an important part in Vietnamese culture. Therefore, Lotussia Travel will not intend take clients to the most expensive restaurants but non-touristy local ones which offer delicious, local food, with nice or interesting atmosphere. The restaurants might be simple in the country but LOTUSSIA Travel guarantee is sanitary and cleanliness. Or even on our trek, we encourage our cook offer client food with new tastes from day to day. During adventure itineraries to mountainous or remote areas, there is sometimes no choice for hotel and restaurants. We will try our best to bring you the best taste of local food.


As the tap water in Vietnam is undrinkable, Lotussia Travel recommend clients to drink bottled water throughout your trip, or boiled water on treks. Lotussia Travel offers bottle water all the day, and soft drinks like Cola, Sprite or Vietnamese Tea or if possible juice in restaurants (if mentionned in itinerary). This is not automatically included in the packages. In simple restaurant or on camping, Lotussia Travel offers boiled water, instant coffee or juice, wrapped milk (Details are confirmed in bottom of your itinerary).


In most destinations of Vietnam, all the roads are well paved though the traffic is quite messed up like in Hanoi, Hai Phong… We use proper vehicles, car, minibus or coach in good condition based on the size of the groups. We use 4WD only on the rough road where the other vehicles could not pass through or based on clients requirement on overland journeys or treks. For cycling itineraries, we usually use our support minibus or minibus with support truck. For sea kayaking, river rafting trips, diving packages we use standard boat as support. Detailed information is provided on our service proposal.

We use drivers who are native or local of each travel destination and maintain good safety records for all trips. Most of our drivers can speak English but a little bit. This is just enough to understand basic words such as “time of departure”, “stop”, “restaurants”, “hotels”…If you want to learn more about Vietnamese culture and information about sightseeing sites, booking a tour guide is highly recommended.
