Here, you can embark on a bicycle ride or take an electric car (at extra cost) through a rainforest tunnel that leads to a scenic rice field vista. Visit a traditional house nestled deep in a national park to observe the local way of life. Afterward, return to the day boat for lunch. In the late afternoon, explore Three Peaches Islands for swimming and kayaking, and then return to Orchid Cruises later in the day.
Halong Bay and its neighboring Lan Ha and Bai Tu Long bays offer a range of cruise options to suit various budgets.
