Best of Sapa and Halong Bay 6 days

From  

$794

The northern area of Vietnam is always an attractive destination for tourists visiting the country. You will take a night train to Lao Cai – a China-Vietnamese border city.

From Lao Cai there will be a short transfer to the hill town of Sapa.  After exploring the area, you will return to Hanoi and visit Halong Bay, a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site and New Seven Natural Wonder of the World. Halong Bay offers out-of-this-world kayaking experiences (optional), suitable for both first-time paddlers and the serious marine explorer. Unique and remote limestone islands sprout from the sea, making kayaking through the inlets an exploration on its own. Many of these isolated islands feature dramatic sea caves and sheltered, pristine beaches that can only be reached by kayak. You will enjoy ending your trip with a relaxing traditional junk trip and take part in a wide variety of activities like kayaking, cave climbing or just simply sitting on the sundeck for a glass of wine.
