HALONG BAY & THE RED RIVER

The Song Hong or Red River rises deep in Yunnan mountains of south-west China to flow 714 miles (1,149km) across Northern Vietnam to discharge into the Gulf of Tonkin. It is an ancient trade route and was the route by which French explorers in the 19th century penetrated Yunnan, eventually reaching Kunming. Hanoi, capital of Vietnam straddles the river and close to its mouth lies Halong Bay, with its dramatic scenery.

Using the Angkor Pandaw in 2015 we set up a remarkable river adventure connecting Halong Bay through various canals and tributaries to connect with the Red River and to continue upstream to mountainous areas beyond Viet Tri and up the Lo River, one of the main tributaries. There can be no better way to explore Northern Vietnam.
