Hanoi (Ha Long Bay), Vietnam-port

Hanoi is gateway to Halong Bay and the Red River Delta. This region, "the Bay of the Descending Dragon," is dotted with more than 3,000 mountainous islands, each with its own unique landscape. The islands are famous for their dolomite and limestone rock formations. At the western end of Halong Bay is Cat Ba Island, where Chinese and Vietnamese pirates settled during the late 19th century. Today a large section of the island is devoted to a protected national park.

    This tour is designed for those who love the beauty and charm of Halong's countryside, but are not fond of long drives.

    Depart Cai Lan port for the drive to the Yen Tu Buddhist Zen Monastery. As you pass by Halong's scenic countryside, you will cross many villages surrounded by bamboo fences and limestone walls. Upon arrival at the Yen Tu Buddhist Zen monastery, you will explore the history of Vietnamese Buddhist Zen. After the former Tran kings defeated Kublai Khan's troops in the 13th century, they abdicated their thrones, settled into this primitive forest to dedicate their life to Zen Buddhism and then introduced it to Vietnam. A photo stop will be made at the limestone mountains that resemble Halong on land.

    Next, your drive will continue along the charming countryside of Halong for a visit to the farmers' gardens, which are abundant with fruit trees. You will then walk into the village to see an authentic Vietnamese community with houses, village temples, street barbershop, coffee shops, and more. During your visit, you will have an opportunity to chat with the farmers, learn how they plant trees and raise the domestic animals, play with the children in the village, and meet some farming families. You will take a look at their altars to locate their ancestors, join them for a cup of local tea, and sample local foods, including sweet potatoes.

    Following your visit, you will re-board your coach for the return drive to the pier.
