13:30 Arriving at your first sightseeing destination of Sung Sot “Surprise Cave” disembark your boat and take a guided tour through this large and popular cave of Halong Bay. Return to the boat by 14:20 and then decide if you would like to cruise to one of three options for further exploring of the Bay.
14:30 You may choose to visit one of these three nearby sightseeing destinations:
a. Luon Cave – here you can transfer onto a local Sampan boat and be paddled through the opening in the side of the rock formation to discover an idyllic enclosed water lake area. There could be a chance to catch a glimpse of some of the small number of local residing Rhesus monkeys on the slopes of inside this island formation.
b. Ti Top Island – here you can take an adventurous and steep walking climb to the high peak of this island where a local Perogda is located. Alternatively you may reach the middle height of this island formation. At either vantage point you will get a birds eye view down over the bay area here and have the opportunity to take some memorable and fantastic panoramic photos. Here at Ti Top you may also wish to take a swim in the bay in the dedicated swimming area netted off for safety from the beach.
c. Soi Sim Island – here you can take a more leisurely and relaxed walking climb up this smaller island but also having the opportunity to take some memorable and fantastic panoramic photos. Here you may also wish to take a swim in the bay at this more intimate and secluded beach with dedicated swimming area netted off for safety.
15:30 Weigh anchor again and cruise on the final leg of your day cruise itinerary back to Tuan Chau Marina. On this final cruising leg you will pass by several icons of Halong Bay such as Thumb Island, Cock Fighting Island, Incense Island which can be seen on the 200,000 dong note, Ba Hang Floating village and finally Dog Island.
