A two-day Hanoi to Halong Bay tour package, which includes a deluxe junk-style cruise of the breathtakingly scenic Vietnam bay, has been created by Helen Wong's Tours as an optional extension to a special four-night Hanoi package.
This cruise offer includes overnight stay on board one of Tonkin Cruises' fleet, meals and sightseeing, and is priced from $340 per person, twin share.
Vessels are built of wood in traditional style, cabins spacious with good window viewing of the bay.
Dining focuses on traditional local cuisine in a restaurant which caters for no more than 20 guests. The upper sundeck is a magnet for passengers wanting to relax while taking in the sights of the many limestone islands to pierce the waters.
The four-night Discover Hanoi was unveiled by the established Asia tour holiday specialist in response to Vietnam Airlines' decision to begin direct flights between Sydney and Hanoi at the end of March 2017.
The new package is priced from $1150 per person, twin share, and includes return air fares from Sydney, four-star hotel accommodation, daily breakfasts, a guided half-day tour and tickets to the world renowned Water Puppet Show.
