Challenge yourself with Rock Climbing

Dive into Ha Long Bay and find out why it’s become a famous World Heritage site. You’ll be sure to feel the spirit!

“Ha Long Bay” means Descending Dragon Bay. Legends tell of dragons sent to defend Vietnam’s Tonkin gulf from its enemies. After the battle, the dragons descended to the sea, forming the breathtaking islands you see here today.

Ha Long Bay is not only a historical site, it’s also home to thousands of marine species and magnificent landscapes.

Love it short but large

Even if you are short of time, you can still experience the thrilling and gorgeous Ha Long Bay on our 1 Day trip. Our tour guide will pick you up at your Hostel to start Halong Bay 1 day tour at about 8.00 – 8.30am.

The three and a half hour drive is a chance for you to free the mind and spirit as we leave the city and prepare to plunge into the Ocean. The way to Ha Long Bay is rustic itself, decorated by the traditional beauty of rice fields and farmers in traditional conical hats.

Jump on our lovely day boat at noon. While having lunch, the boat will cruise you around the breathtaking bay and around thousands of beautiful islands, and then stop at one of the many grottoes where you can learn about World Heritage.

You can just chill in the water or take the chance to discover one of the most amazing limestone formations, named Dong Thien Cung (Heavenly Palace Grotto), standing like a guardian of the Bay. It is unknown whether the name is set by local people or by tourists, but it is inspired by the many fantastic stalactites and stalagmites formed inside the cave.

The short but incredible trip eventually comes to an end. At 4pm the boat takes you back the harbour. Have a break on the way back with time to rest and drink. Arriving at about 8.00 – 8.30 pm, we drop you off at your Hotel. Finish the memorable Ha Long Bay 1 day trip.

I had a fantastic time staying at See you at Lily’s, the staff were an absolute delight to deal with and van, one of the girls working the counter was very patient in explaining to me in detail about the tours they offer. I opted for the Halong Bay cruise which turned out to be spectacular.

I stayed 3 nights in the mixed dormitory, it was pretty good value for the price you pay, the air con worked very well ( a little too well, it gets really cold at night, but not complaining! ) and the place is relatively clean. Bathroom is shared but is cleaned daily by the staff. For the price you pay, absolutely no complaints!…

“Superb value in the heart of the Old Quarter”, Review from tripadvisor

We can’t rate Lily’s highly enough. We wandered in here after a mix up at the hostel we’d originally booked and were welcomed with open arms. We stayed a few nights in a private triple room & one night in a dorm as the triple was already booked & we wanted to extend our stay. Both rooms were clean and comfortable with modern bathroom facilities… We booked a 2 day 1 night trip to Halong Bay which exceeded all our expectations & was one of our favourite experiences of our trip so far. We left our big bags at the hostel and when we returned to collect them, we were invited to sit down for as long as we wanted, even though we’d already checked out and were not technically paying guests any longer…

“Wonderful Experience ”, Review from Tripadvisor

I LOVED the people- both the staff and fellow travelers- at this incredible hostel. They are all wonderful. The amenities were basic, but everyone was just so friendly! I booked most of my Vietnam excursions there, including my Sapa homestay and Ha Long Bay trip, and they were superb. The staff sat with me for over an hour when I first arrived, answering all my questions and bringing out tea, watermelon, sticky rice, candy… so much food! And they gave fantastic recommendations for places to eat and grab coffee. Breakfast is great. The location is exceptional. There’s no blasting music late at night like some of the other nearby hostels. I really can’t say enough good things.
