Spend half a day getting acquainted with Ha Long city on this inland tour; visit a local seafood market, climb a mountain for magnificent views of Ha Long Bay, see a historical Pagoda and the largest church in Quang Ninh Province.
We will pick you up at your hotel and start our day with a visit to the vibrant Fish market where you can find all kinds of fresh seafood. Outside of the market, we walked along the wharf and watched the colorful fishing ships unload their morning catch. Continue to visit Bai Tho Mountain. At 186 meters high, the mountain is accessible by land or sea and offers a magnificent view of the shimmering water, endless sky and the amazing islands that are scattered across Ha Long Bay. The mountain is formed from three peaks that reach high into the sky, resembling a beautiful castle. At the base lies Long Tien Pagoda, the largest pagoda in Ha Long City. Long Tien was built in 1941 as a Buddhist Temple, but it also has altars dedicated to the warriors of the Tran Dynasty and to the Holy Mother of Three Palaces. The last visit of the day is to Hon Gai Church. Built at the beginning of the 20th century, the church is located on a high hilltop overlooking the city of Ha Long. Hon Gai Church was destroyed by the war in 1972 but rebuilt and expanded in 1998 and is now the largest church in Quang Ninh Province.
