This one-day Halong Bay shore excursion from cruise ship is a great combination of the tranquil Yen Duc Cultural Village and Yen Tu Holy Peak in Yen Tu Pagoda, one of the most sacred sites of Buddhism in Viet Nam. Due to the time constraint, we will only visit Hoa Yen pagoda, located mid-way between the starting point and Yen Tu Holy Peak. We highly recommend senior cruise passengers to take the cable car instead of walking.
