The Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi

5-day Hanoi & Halong Bay Deluxe Package

Day 1: Arrival Hanoi

Wishing you a warm welcome to the charming city of Hanoi! The Sheraton’s team is honored to greet you on your arrival at Noi Bai International Airport (Hanoi) and to accompany you to Five Star Sheraton Hanoi Hotel for your first night.

Day 2: Hanoi at Leisure

This is your free day to discover the most charming city in Asia’s most famous places as well as the history of this millenary city. Some highlighted places are Ho Chi Minh mausoleum, Van Mieu Temple, Bat Trang village, or the Old Quarter where you will have a glimpse of the daily life of Hanoian residents and vestiges of French architecture thanks to an epic cyclo tour. Enjoy one hour of Vietnamese body massage per person at Santal Spa next to the Hotel.
Stay a second night in Five Star Sheraton Hanoi Hotel to rest before the visit of Vietnam’s premium destination: Halong Bay and The Gulf of Tonkin.

Day 3: Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay

This morning, you will take the sharing shuttle bus at 7:45 am for Halong Bay (4 hours drive). Highlights today includes the amazing scenery of Halong Bay and its southern sister; Lan Ha Bay. Also located in the Gulf of Tonkin, to the south of Halong Bay, Lan Ha Bay and the Dark & Bright Cave offer tranquility and nature at its best, and a guided kayaking tour or a refreshing swim in the Bay’s emerald waters are two of the best ways to enjoy them. Then we anchor at Ho Dong Tien area, a peaceful and beautiful location. Don’t forget to reserve the time for the complementary body massage on board (1 hour/ person)

Day 4: Cat Ba Island and Bai Tu Long Bay

Cat Ba Island is famous for its national park, with more than half the island designated. This island, far and away the largest in the Gulf of Tonkin, is covered by a dense rainforest home to numerous indigenous species of flora and fauna. The secluded village of Viet Hai, situated in the middle of this pristine environment, is easily accessible thanks to a short walk or cycling trip and is where we are developing an organic farm which you can visit.

Bai Tu Long Bay, located a little further east of Halong Bay, is the most remote area of your voyage. The exceptional scale and variety of the geological rock formations in this area are sure to make this a future destination for cruising in the Gulf of Tonkin. A relaxing rowing boat tour through the floating village of Vung Vieng and cruising into the geological park of this bay will definitely be delightful moments for you to remember.

Breakfast is served on board. Dinner & Accommodation on board Five Star cruise: The Au Co (Deluxe Cabin)

Day 5: Halong Bay - Hanoi - Airport Transfer

Halong Bay, designated a UNESCO world heritage site for its limestone rock formations, is home to about 2,000 isles and islets of different shapes and sizes, creating a truly breathtaking seascape. At its heart is the highest concentration of limestone rocks in the area and caves and grottoes abound. One of the most beautiful is The Sung Sot (Surprise) Cave. Exceptional because of its size and the shapes which have been created by millions of years of erosion, the Surprise Cave is not to be missed.
