Product Description

Day 1: Hanoi – Halong Bay – Hanoi.

Between 7:30 and 8:00 in the morning, we’ll pick you up from your hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter and depart for Ha Long Bay. Please note that this service is only available for guests who have booked a Limousine or shuttle bus.

Upon arriving at Sungroup harbor at 10:15, we’ll help you check-in and board the cruise for an unforgettable journey to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Ha Long Bay. The first stop on the itinerary is Sung Sot Cave.

At around 11:45, you’ll have the chance to explore Sung Sot Cave, which is the largest and most beautiful cave in Ha Long Bay. The cave features unique stalagmites that can’t be found anywhere else. To reach the cave, you’ll need to take a path situated beneath the forest canopy with stone steps perched on the rocky cliff, providing a delightful climbing experience with an exciting feel of heading towards the sky.

After exploring the cave, we’ll serve you a delicious lunch featuring special dishes that showcase the unique flavors of Vietnamese cuisine. Then, we’ll head to Trinh Nu Cave, an unspoiled stop with very few boats passing by. Please note that this stop is usually reserved for 3-day, 2-night tours.

Once we arrive at Trinh Nu Cave at around 12:30-12:45, you’ll have the opportunity to participate in kayaking activities. Please note that you’ll need to kayak with all the other cruise members to get to the bathing area at Trinh Nu Beach.

At around 3:00 in the afternoon, we’ll return to the cruise and continue the journey, passing by Bai Tu Long Bay. Bai Tu Long Bay is located in the east of Ha Long Bay, Vietnam, and is considered off the beaten tourist track with many pristine, deserted beaches and impressive karst mountains.

As we cruise, we’ll enjoy a sunset party and cooking class, where you can relax and savor Vietnamese traditional tea and coffee while admiring the romantic sunset in Ha Long Bay on the sundeck. You can also learn to make delicious Pho rolls.

We’ll return to the harbor at around 5:15 in the evening, and then you’ll disembark to depart for Hanoi.

The trip ends between 7:30 and 8:00 in the evening. Thank you for choosing Cong Cruise for your holiday in Vietnam, and we hope to see you on your next journey.

Tour guide

Our tour guides speak English or French. They hold a university degree in tourism and national license as a guide. If you wish to send a tour leader along with any group, he or she can fully rely on the knowledge and experience of our local guides.

Remote treks are always accompanied by a local representative to deal with permits and authorities and manage the porter team. They speak the local dialects, know the cultural traditions and give tips on suggested behavior in fragile ecological areas and tribal communities. For some itineraries, the role of tour leader and representative is combined.


Our drivers don’t speak English. It’s possible that a few of them might know some basic words, such as telling time, stop, and lunch. If you’re looking for effective communication throughout the journey, we highly recommend booking a tour guide.

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.
