Day 03 - Halong Bay – Hanoi (B, L, D)
A light breakfast (tea, coffee, fruits and cakes) is served on board. Begin your day with a Tai Chi exercise on deck while watching the sunrise. A wholesome brunch is served while the vessel cruises slowly through the magnificent rock formations and back towards port. Enjoy the tranquil scenery as the boat meanders its way through the bay on the way back to Ha Long city. Disembark and drive back to Hanoi. Enjoy a water puppet show – a very special show found only in Viet Nam – a series of ancient short stories and legends presented through the use of traditional music, song, and characters. The stage is actually a large container of water where the characters (carved wooden puppets) act out the story. The music is live, performed by a group of musicians that share a side stage adjacent to the water stage. After dinner, transfer to the hotel for check in and overnight in Hanoi.
