1 day


Limited time and wanting to pack as much into your itinerary as possible? YESD offers you this express tour to allow you to cruise the bay and visit its most popular sites in a single day. You’ll visit the Ba Hang fishing village, Fight-Cock Island, Thien Cung Cave and take to the water by kayak or bamboo boat. No doubt you will be amazed by this beautiful location, and perhaps regret not taking one of our longer Halong Bay tours. We’ll let you decide!
