The tour will start off with a day in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam and its second biggest city. Then holidaymakers will get to travel to Lao Cai, a city on the nation’s border with China, on a night train. From there, they will make a short trip to Sapa and then return to Hanoi after some exploring. Upon their return to the capital, they will visit Halong Bay, which is a UNESCO World Natural Heritage site and newly voted as the New Seven Wonders of Nature.
Ha Long Bay is a world heritage site and one of Vietnam’s popular tourist destinations. It is located about three hours east of Hanoi in the Gulf of Tonkin near the northern Chinese border. The emerald water is dotted with 1,700 dramatic limestone formations that form tiny islands.
Some 500 boats are licensed to take tourists on cruises. Many opt for day tours, while others prefer to sleep in overnight cabins on wooden junks, ranging from budget to luxury accommodation.
The luxury tour isn’t lacking in the ‘luxury’ department by any means. It comes complete with private concierge services – transportation, a private cabin on a boat cruise, door-to-door pick up and drop off services, deluxe train services, an everyday tour guide that speaks either French or English, and meals. This is all priced at just US$1190 per person for first class and US$1,615 per person for a private party of two people for deluxe travel.
