Lunch will be served onboard with seafood mainly while our cruise sets toward to the Islet of Rocky Dog (Hon Cho Da), Incense Burner (Hon Dinh Huong) and Fighting Cock (Hon Ga Choi). Our cruise then docks at Heavenly Palace Cave and Wooden Stake Cave for a visit. These are two of the most amazing caves in Halong Bay thanks to its hundreds of splendid stalactites. After returning to the cruise, we continue exploring further in the bay before ending the trip at Tuan Chau Wharf. From here, we will move to Hai Au Waiting Lounge for our check-in process.
