Fascinating Hanoi is nearly 1,000 years old and the proud capital of Vietnam. With its many attractions, an overnight stay is a must on any visit to this dynamic destination. Situated on both sides of the Red River, the city with a population of roughly 6.5 million is the country’s economic, cultural and political centre. Beautiful French colonial buildings stand next to traditional houses, and thousands of scooters, motorcycles and bicycles clutter the streets, vying for space with cars and buses. Take in a little of both its ancient and modern history. Upon your return to Ha Long Bay, experience the natural wonder of this UNESCO site on your junk cruise, before re-joining the ship.

01MIDHAL-G Hanoi In-Depth

Departure: Halong Bay

Duration: 1.5 Days/1 Night

Rejoin ship: Halong Bay    

Reserve: A minimum of 90 days prior to sailing

This Mid-Voyage Land Adventure requires advance booking through Silversea Reservations by the applicable booking deadline specified above. Requests received after this date may be accommodated on a space-available basis and the programme price is subject to change. Payment in full is due within 120 days prior to sailing. This programme is non-refundable if cancelled within 90 days of sailing.

Explore ancient and modern Hanoi with more time to take in the many sites that make Vietnam’s capital and second largest city a bucket-list destination for so many.  The name Ha Long Bay, or ‘where the dragon descends into the sea,’ has its origin in an ancient legend, according to which a huge dragon descended and assisted the Vietnamese in their fight against northern invaders. After victory, the dragon and its young remained, turning into a fence of rocky islands to protect the locals. Even today, sailors and locals still claim sightings of a giant sea monster. Some of the outcroppings, caves and grottoes have a most exotic appearance. They have been given such names as Face Island, Isle of Wonders and Isle of Surprise, among others.

DAY ONE – Ha Long Bay / Hanoi

A cruise by local junk offers a wonderful opportunity to fully enjoy this magical scenery. After tendering ashore, your junk is ready for boarding and then you head out for a cruise past craggy outcrops and strange images that rise from the sea.

Disembark the junk for the four-hour drive to the capital of Vietnam, Hanoi. For your comfort, guests travel in small groups, generally in vans. Boasting of glorious French colonial architecture and numerous lakes, with a little blending of east and west amongst bicycle-cluttered streets, the city is the jewel in Vietnam’s crown. The upgraded road from the pier to Hanoi offers ample chances to take photos of buffaloes and rice fields, farmers working together on the cooperatives, mountains, coal mines, old factories, and former battlefields, as you pass through the countryside.

On arrival in the city, check-in at the Hanoi InterContinental and after freshening-up, meet for a relaxing dinner within the hotel.

Overnight at the Hanoi InterContinental Hotel (or similar) – Hanoi

DAY TWO – Hanoi / Ha Long Bay

After an early breakfast at the hotel, check-out and continue with your sightseeing program, covering some of the city’s major highlights including Ba Dinh Square which is dominated by the impressive marble and granite tomb where the father of the country lies in state.  The huge square is dominated by the monumental shrine containing the embalmed body of the ‘Father of the Country.’ Together with the former Presidential Palace and one-time French governor’s residence, the square offers great photo opportunities. Due to long lines and frequent closures, a visit to the mausoleum is not planned. For the Vietnamese, filing past ‘Uncle Ho’ in his glass sarcophagus is a somber experience in this spiritual center of their independence.

Continue your tour with a walk through the garden located behind the Mausoleum. Stroll past tranquil lotus ponds to Ho’s stilt house. The cottage is a simple teak building resembling the homes of the ethnic hill tribes. Take a look inside this humble abode, which Ho preferred to living in the palace.

Continue to visit the Temple of Literature dedicated to Confucianism and founded in 1076 during the Ly Dynasty.  The temple complex is the site of the country’s first university, which is the pride of the nation and the most important educational center. The unique entrance gate and 82 stone steles bear witness to an early high level of education at a time when the country gained independence from Chinese occupation. Take a walk through walled courtyards with ancient pavilions and enter the ornate main shrine dedicated to famous teachers and Confucius, where ‘men of letters’ once recited their poetry.

Carry on to Hoa Lo, translated as ‘Hell’s hole’, built by the French in the late 19th century to house Vietnamese prisoners. Nicknamed ‘Hanoi Hilton’ by the Americans during the Second Indochina War, much of the prison was demolished in 1996. What remains is a museum depicting the horrors of the imprisonment of the Vietnamese and many American pilots including Senator John McCain.  Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.

After lunch, drive past the Hoan Kiem Lake. The central location of the lake offers great panoramic views. Residents credit Sword Lake with many myths and legends, including huge tortoises that inhabit these waters. In the middle of the lake, on a tiny island reached by a footbridge, stands the Ngoc Son Pagoda, dedicated to Tran Hung Dao, a hero who fought against Kublai Khan’s troops in the 13th century.

From the lake, a short walk will take you to the Thang Long Theater.

At the Thang Long Theater you will be treated to a delightful performance of a unique Vietnamese tradition. The water puppetry was created by kings of the Ly Dynasty, a form of entertainment that is still very popular. The puppets are handled by artists pulling strings and poles under water. Acting out legends, the show is accompanied by folk music and special lighting.

To conclude your day in Hanoi, make a stop to the Old Quarter. Named for the original 36 streets that formed the quarter, this is the most crowded and busy part of downtown. In streets named each after a particular trade they once represented, merchants and buyers carry out a flurry of activities. Today, this is a shopping mecca for visitors and residents alike. While walking through this maze of alleys, you may well find a nice souvenir at a good price.  Afterwards realx on the 3.5-4 hour journey back to the ship.

With its sheer limestone peaks jutting up from the Li River, Guilin is straight out of a traditional Chinese landscape painting, and remains one of China’s most breathtaking sights.  

PLEASE NOTE:  When combined with your cruise itinerary, you may be required to secure a multi-entry visa for China well in advance of your voyage.  Please check with your travel professional for more details.

DAY 1 – HONG KONG / GUILIN

Your Silversea representative meets you at disembarkation in Hong Kong. As you make your way out of the city, stop for a visit to the Chi Lin Nunnery.  This tranquil retreat was first established in 1934, and rebuilt in 1990 using wooden frames and without a single nail.  It is the only temple complex of its kind remaining in Hong Kong today.  Adjacent to the nunnery is the Nan Lian Garden – well worth stopping in for a few moments of peace and quiet in the midst of urban Kowloon.   Continue on to the airport for your flight to Guilin (approximately 1 hour and 50 minutes).  

Transfer upon arrival to the Shangri-La Guilin.  Take some time to settle in at the hotel.  Dinner tonight is served in the hotel.  Afterward, a short transfer takes you to Tianhu Pier where you can witness the ancient tradition of fishing with tamed and trained cormorants.

Return to the hotel.  Overnight at the Shangri-La – Guilin, China

DAY 2 – GUILIN

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before setting out for a scenic cruise on the renowned Li River.  Have your camera ready for photos of the uniquely shaped limestone peaks, verdant bamboo groves, and idyllic views along the way.  The portion of the river you see has been called a "one-hundred-mile natural art gallery".   A boxed lunch provided by your hotel can be enjoyed onboard.

Disembark the vessel at Yangshuo and spend some time enjoying the scenic and quiet countryside.  This glimpse of Southern China’s country life shows you the flora, fauna, rice paddies and small bridges that are not always visited by Western tourists.  

From this idyllic setting, board an electric cart for a close look of the country life.  The fields, the buffalos, the zigzag lanes and the fresh air allow you escape from the noisy metropolis.   Your visit includes the Yulong River Scenic Area. The Chinese word ‘Yulong’ refers to ‘meeting a dragon’. Local legend has it that a dragon from the East Sea strolled across the Yulong River and, being deeply impressed by the attractive landscape, decided to stay there forever. The villagers living on the river bank saw the dragon several times, and hence the river is so named. The languid river is surrounded by a primitive, but pure, natural landscape, combined with green bamboo forests and rolling hills.

Return to the hotel at the end of the afternoon.  Take a moment to freshen up before dinner at a local restaurant.  Return to the hotel at the end of your meal for a well-deserved nights rest.

Overnight at the Shangri-La – Guilin, China

DAY 3 -  GUILIN / HONG KONG

Following breakfast at the hotel, check out of the hotel and start for the airport with a few interesting sites enroute.  First stop is Reed Flute Cave, named after the stand of bamboo near its entrance that were used to craft flutes.  Inside the cave there are more than 70 inscriptions written in ink, which date back as far as 792 AD in the Tang Dynasty (618-907). These ancient inscriptions tell us that the cave has been an attraction in Guilin for over 1,200 years.

Your next stop is at Elephant Trunk Hill, located at the confluence of the Li River and Peach Blossom River. It looks like a huge elephant stretching its trunk and drinking water, hence the name. Elephant Trunk Hill is considered by many to be the symbol of Guilin and its karst landscape.

At the end of your tour, stop for lunch at a local restaurant before bidding farewell to Guilin and checking in for the flight to Hong Kong.  Once there, return to the InterContinental and enjoy the evening, including dinner, at your leisure.

Overnight at the InterContinental Hotel – Hong Kong
