Moreover, the activity offers the serenity of escape, particularly in the late afternoon. From a distance, few small junks drift off into the sunset slowly. What cool and poetic moment!
17:30: Go back Gray Line boat for relaxation at dusk. Enjoy a mini sunset party with complimentary seasonal fruits and finger foods. To get memorable sunset moment, you should order some Halong-styled glasses of cocktail by joining buy-one-get-one-free program, made by our skillful bartenders.
