Our walking tour takes you to very insights of the interesting Hanoi Old Quarter, getting you so closed to Hanoian’s local life. And by owing Halong Phoenix Cruiser, in Halong Bay, we are proud to bring you an alternative cruising trip that is totally not like other tourist boats - weaving into crowded boating area which is being over-used by hundreds of day and overnight boats.
Our cruiser travel from Halong Bay and Cat Ba Island, but starting right from Tuan Chau Marina – Tuan Chau Island, slowly glides to the center of the World Natural Heritage site and anchor at a hidden spot near Cat Ba National Park. The best things are still on the next day when a local support boat, from Cat Ba Island, will take you to Lan Ha Bay for your escape from the crowd. On this Northeast Hanoi Package, you will find both comfortable moment and adventure experience.
