At around 8:30, you’ll be picked up (book in the next step with an additional fee) at your hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter and transferred to Halong International Harbor. 

After around 2.5 hours, you’ll arrive at the port at around 12:00. Let’s proceed to complete the check-in process and listen to the cruise briefing. 

Embark on a mesmerizing journey as you set your sights on Bai Tu Long Bay. Sail toward the enchanting Mat Quy islet and Teapot islet, where the splendors of nature unfold before your eyes. 

Then, return to the boat, where a delectable lunch awaits. Let’s delight in a seafood feast presented through a buffet or set menu. As you dine, take in the sweeping views and reflect on the enchantment of your journey thus far.


Venture into the captivating Thien Canh Son Cave and set out on a kayaking expedition to explore the charming Cong Do area. Located within the heart of the lush greenery, Thien Canh Son Cave, often likened to a scene from a fairy tale, stands as a testament to the wondrous beauty of nature. 

After an eventful day, let’s return to the ship, and indulge in a delightful tea party as the cruise gently sails back to the harbor, passing by Dragon's Head islet and Toad islet. 

By approximately 17:30, the ship will reach the port and a shuttle bus will be ready to take you from the harbor back to Hanoi.

Excellent day excursion aboard La Muse

We went on the one-day boat from Hanoi. Really enjoyable a day in Ha Long Bay. It was really quiet, the staff was friendly, and the meal was delicious. We went kayaking and visited a cave.

We had the pleasure of working with Hera Vu to organize our cruise in Ha Long Bay, and she was absolutely fantastic. Hera communicated exceptionally well and stayed in contact with us throughout our trip to ensure that we were well taken care of. We were thoroughly impressed with her level of service. We will definitely be using Best Price Travel again in the future.

I’m staying in the light hotel lin old quarter in Hanoi. I want to see a bay not particularly Halong as heard busy and polluted. What’s the short cruise and another bay with pick up from hotel cost?


La Muse is best option for you because there is only this cruise doing day trip to Bai Tu Long Bay (Quited area), you can add transfer round way in the booking step.

We are interested in La Muse Day Cruise but will NOT need transfer from Hanoi. We will be staying in Ha Long. Please update us the cost. Tq


Hi! The price of La Muse Day Cruise doesn't include transfer from and to Hanoi. You can see what include clearly in the price include section.

How much is a customized tour for 4 people for a Bai Tu Long Bay in the afternoon on April 4? Our cruise ship arrives in Ha Long Bay at noon, so the Bai Tu Long Bay tour has to start about an hour after 12:00. The itinerary should include Thien Canh Son cave, and a fishing village nearby.


Hi! The tour price is base on which Bai Tu Long Bay cruise standard you choose (options are available from 3-star to 5-star). However, as all cruise are departed at 12.00 - 12.30 pm, you might can't make it. If you can't change your schedule, we suggest you book private cruise so your departure time can be more flexible (the cost is from around $220/pax).

Please check our list for private cruise for more options!

Hi, I'm exploring booking the La Muse Cruise Day Trip, but have a question about the optional service: 'Ninh Binh: Hoa Lu - Tam Coc Full day Deluxe Small Group from Hanoi' how long would the entire trip take? If just the La Muse Cruise Day Trip, it already starts at with the added 'Ninh Binh: Hoa Lu - Tam Coc Full day Deluxe Small Group'. is that on the same day?


It is impossible to do a Ha Long Bay day cruise and a Ninh Binh day trip on the same day as Tam Coc closing time is at 17:00.
