The majority of cruises in the Bay, even a 1-day trip cruise, can serve you kayaking. Nevertheless, you will have plenty of time to enjoy this interesting activity if going with a 2-day trip or 3-day trip.

Moreover, you may feel tired as you have to spend long time on bus and go back to Hanoi late. So, consider it thoroughly and it is also well worth at least a few days discovering this marvelous Halong Bay.
