What To Expect

Bravo Indochina Tours
Cruise the magnificent limestone karsts of Vietnam's Halong Bay on a full-day adventure from Hanoi with Bravo Indochina Tours. The UNESCO World Heritage site of Halong Bay means ‘dragon descending to the sea,’ named for a family of dragons said to have helped the Vietnamese people fend off invaders. According to legend, the dragons spit out gemstones that turned into the islets dotting the bay.

Dong Thien Cung
Board your sailboat upon arrival and begin your cruise around the picturesque waters where the reflections of 3,000 limestone islets are mirrored against the clear and calm emerald sea, many of them containing fascinating grottoes. Visit Thien Cung, also known as Heavenly Cave, which can be reached on the southwest side of the bay through a sailing route shrouded on each side by thick foliage. As you stroll the wooden walkway and marvel at the unique rock formations inside, learn about the legend of the dragon prince from your guide.

Dau Go Cave
Next, disembark at Dau Go grotto, located on Driftwood Island, and climb 90 steps up to the entrance. Inside, numerous stalactites descend from the cave’s ceiling like a frozen waterfall.
Enjoy a provided seafood lunch on board as you continue to experience the charm of Halong Bay, sailing around Dinh Huong (Incense Urn), Cho Da (Stone Dog) and Ga Choi (Fighting Roosters) — rocky islets named for their animal shapes.
