Bai Tu Long Bay is one of the most loved spots in Vietnam for a reason - it's gorgeous. On this Bai Tu long Bay tour, we take you away from the hectic pace of life in Hano and busy Halong bayi and introduce you to the tranquil, beautiful Bai Tu Long Bay..
Our Van Don and Bai Tu Long Bay tour begins with a 04 hour drive throught Reb River Delta. On arrival in Cai Rong town, we board our private sailing joat at Cai Rong port for a cruise in Bai Tu long and Van Don Bay, famous for its spectacular limestone karsts jutting out of the peaceful green waters of the bay. The views are spectacular as we cruise amongst the nearly 2000 islands that fill the bay. Your will be alone during our 5 hours cruise!
You will see first hand why Bai Tu Long Bay has been listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site since 1994 and announced as one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature in 2011. Bai Tu Long Bay means "Bay of the Baby Dragon" and legend has it that in ancient times, when the Vietnamese were fighting off foreign invaders, the gods sent a family of dragons to assist in the fight. During the battle, the dragons spat out jewels that would later become the islands that now are scattered around the bay.
After a welcome drink, we'll enjoy a seafood lunch on board while we cruise among the breathtaking scenery and amazing karst rocks...what a way to spend the day! Soak up the majestic atmosphere from the top deck and enjoy the stunning views or relax below in comfortable surroundings. We'll also explore some floating villages in Van Don and Bai Tu Long bay
