The mountains at Yen Tu

Tour to Yen Tu & Halong Bay - 2 Days

Yen Tu Mountain and Halong Bay Tour is a hiking adventure tour and a sightseeing tour which is still in research phase by Paradissa Travel for 2 days, 1 night.

While Halong Bay is already a popular tourist attraction; Yen Tu Mountain is rarely visited by the foreign travellers to Vietnam. The area is fresh and tranquil with forests, mountains and the Zen atmosphere. Visiting Yen Tu is a challenging trip while visiting Halong Bay is too easy a tour for some travellers. There is a certain level of contrast between the two travel highlights and Paradissa trusts our travellers to have a wonderful holiday visiting both these two destinations.
