Hạ Long Bay  is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and popular travel destination in the north of Vietnam. The bay features thousands of limestone karsts and islets in various shapes and sizes. If you go to Vietnam, you gotta go to Ha Long Bay.

With a single tour, we cannot explore all the parts of Halong bay. But with The Halong Hideaway tour, we can pay a visit to the best and untouched parts of the bay. We offer this tour right here in Central backpackers hostel.

Based on the pristine area of the bay, the Halong Hideaway provides you such amazing and unforgettable experiences that you would not get elsewhere. No words can describe the beautiful scenery.

When your feet touch on the island, you will be getting lost in a different world that you could never imagine. A world of pristine beaches, lush green scenery and mountaintop views of the whole bay.

We not only provide you the “fun tour” but also  various knowledges of the local life.

Our  all-day cruise is the best way to explore the immense bluff of the karst peaks of the bay and the local life. From the boat you will be taken on kayak , cliff  jumping, cycling and trekking tours…

DAY 1 - Hanoi to Hideaway (L, D)
 Meet the tour guide in Hanoi at the Central backpackers  hostel for a 7.45am departure.  While travelling by bus and boat to Hideaway Island, you’ve already put yourself in the beautiful sights of Cat Ba National Park

Arriving at lunch time on the island, you will be welcomed by a refreshing drink. The lunch will be served afterwards.

We start a long day of activities by taking a boat, cruising around the picturesque  bay and enjoying the beautiful sceneries ( good chance to take pictures). We first get on the boat and continuing to cruise further on , we bring you to the most beautiful part of the bay to do kayaking, where you spend plenty of time exploring the bay by kayak  then stop over at midle of the bay for boat jumping and swimming... Not only are they a bucket load of fun but great for exercise and experience.

Heading back to the island in time for sunset, we have beach games and drinks at the sunset party which will ensure everyone makes lots of new Hideaway friends to share a BBQ dinner and party into the night with!

DAY 2 – Hideaway to Hanoi (B, L)

 Welcoming ther new day on Hideaway island the rooftop of the bay, breakfast will be served from 7:00am to 9:00am.

 You don’t have to leave the island until after lunch so there is lots of time to enjoy a slow morning, a morning swim, more kayaking or maybe a lazy lie in. If you would like to continue exploring the beautiful Hideaway island you can hike to the other side of the mountain to see the whole bay. You might even make some new friends…(monkeys)
