The Ultimate Halong Bay Trip for Backpackers! (3 Day / 2 Night Adventure)

219 USD / PAX
Itinerary : Open Tours
Departure date:

DAY 1: Arrive on Castaways Island & get active right away!
Lunch and dinner included.

Meet at the Hostel & Head Out To Halong Bay! Meet the rest of your crew in Hanoi at the Downtown Vietnam Backpackers’ Hostel at 7am. Travel by bus and boat to Castaways Island, taking in the incredible sights of Cat Ba National Park along the way. Arrive at the island in time for lunch on the beach and fuel up for some activities!

Get into the adventure sports: Not only are they a bucket load of fun, but they’re great exercise.

Go tubing! Up to four people can be taken out on the tube one time. You and three friends will get real close while you bounce around Ha Long Bay at speed while all trying to be the last one left on the tube! (Activity included in the price)

If you’re a wakeboarder, or you want to learn, what a place to do it! Our water sports crew will get you up and going for the most memorable wakeboard of your life. (+$20 USD)

Go rock climbing! If you’ve already got a head for heights or if you want to learn, our professional rock climbing team will provide you with the highest standard of equipment and instruction you need to climb a cliff face and checkout Ha Long Bay from up high. (+$30 USD)

As the sun sets enjoy cocktails on the beach, indulge in our Castaways happy hour or simply take a well deserved nap in a hammock in preparation for a big night of partying!

DAY 2: Cruising, kayaking, floating villages & caves!
Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.

An Adventurous Day on Castaways Island! Breakfast is served from 7am so you have plenty of time to get yourself ready for a day on a junk boat cruising through the karsts and diving into the turquoise waters of Ha Long Bay.

You will depart at 10am for a cruise through the magnificent un-touristic mountain range of Lan Ha Bay, passing by the local fishermen & woman and their floating villages. This is followed by an hour kayaking tour through ancient caves and a network of lagoons, getting the opportunity to possibly see the endangered Cat Ba Langur, native to this area.

After your kayaking you will be treated to a traditional Vietnamese lunch offering fresh seafood, meat, vegetables, rice, noodles and fresh fruit. (Vegetarian options are available and please let us know of any allergies at the time of booking).

After lunch you can kick back and relax on the boat, taking in the amazing views, or go for a leisurely swim with your Castaways buddies. Before heading back in time to freshen up and be ready for dinner and a night of fun ahead.

DAY 3: It’s so hard to leave paradise!
Breakfast and lunch included.

It’s Hard to Drag Yourself Away From Paradise! You do not depart the island until after lunch so there’s plenty of time to enjoy a slow morning kayaking, a morning swim or maybe a well deserved lie in.

Not all good things have to come to an end. If you like where you are, stay. You’re welcome to continue your stay on the island and share your experiences with the daily new arrivals…

If you really have to leave, after lunch we commence the journey back to civilisation via boat and bus, you will arrive back at Vietnam Backpackers’ – Hanoi Downtown Hostel at approximately 6pm.
