Day 1
Hanoi – Halong (L – D)

12.30 Easily get on Gray Line by private auto pier, and then Crew, who will serve you along the trip, warmly welcomes you. Welcome drink is served following Cruise manager’s briefing. Check in to your reserved cabin and take a rest.
13.30 Enjoy a nice set-menu lunch. By local flavors in each dish, it vitally helps to recuperate after a 4-hour-car drive. In the meantime, Gray Line goes ahead to the Bay’s center.
After lunch, you are free to relax on sundeck. While the light of afternoon decreases slightly, hundreds of islands with different shares definitely amaze you by its natural beauty. What Gray Line makes your trip different is not the sights of Halong, but the line that you are on. It is the best to watch unparalleled sceneries of Halong in slow motion.
15:00 By tender, visit Titop Island. Free choice of activities such as sunbathing, swimming and especially conquering the peak of the biggest island in Halong that is named of a Russian space hero and taking panoramic photos of Halong bay in the afternoon

You will discover the area’s tranquility by kayaking – an indispensable water activity in Halong, for those who love challenging themselves or sitting on bamboo boat, for those who love being gentle and sophisticated, to admire breathtaking scenes. No matter what you choose, you will have a very quick look at the evidence of floating village to understand how they survive in simple forms of floating houses. Centrally, the activity offers the serenity of escape, particularly in the late afternoon. From a distance, few small junks drift off into the sunset slowly. What cool and poetic moment!
17:30 Go back Gray Line boat for relaxation at dusk. Enjoy a mini sunset party with complimentary seasonal fruits and finger foods. To get memorable sunset moment, you should order some Halong-styled glasses of cocktail by joining buy-one-get-one-free offer, made by our skillful bartenders. It is the best time to have unforgettable photos!
18.30 Join in cooking class on the sundeck. Gray Line’s chef shows you how to make Spring Roll - an authentic specialty, which is voted for World's 50 best foods by CNN. Then you could do it yourself and taste it right after to see how good your skill.
19.30 A sophisticated dinner that gives you an appetite will be dedicatedly served in romantic ambience, especially with BBQ fresh seafood and a variety of Vietnamese and Western foods.
21:00 Free choice of evening activities: watching film at the outdoor bar; playing board, guitar and card games; going fishing squid on tender. Enjoy squid cooked after fishing if you are lucky!

07.30 Have a light breakfast at Gray Line restaurant
08.30 Explore Me Cung (Maze) cave. This least known cave locates on a remote island, which is rare in cave-lake seascape. Climb up several rugged stone stairs to admire the miracle of stalactites in a very complex structure, then gradually to the west overlooking a great lake considered as a royal garden surrounding by natural mountain walls, seemingly isolated on the bay. Its water looks blue all year round and breathtaking from high above.
