Hạ Long Bay  is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and popular travel destination in the north of Vietnam. The bay features thousands of limestone karsts and islets in various shapes and sizes. If you go to Vietnam, you gotta go to Ha Long Bay.

 With a single tour, we cannot explore all the parts of Halong bay. But with The Halong Hideaway tour, we can pay a visit to the best and untouched parts of the bay. We offer this tour right here in Catba Buffalo Hostel.

 Based on the pristine area of the bay, the Halong Hideaway cruise provides you such amazing and unforgettable experiences that you would not get elsewhere. No words can describe the beautiful scenery.

 Surrounded by stunning views of limestone karsts raising dramatically from the bays, deep blue waters. Watch the sunset from the ships deck and fall asleep to the gentle sound of crashing waves lapping against the boat.
