“Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads.”
    —Doc Brown

Halong Bay is known as the most beautiful destination in all of Vietnam. There are no roads to the geocache Halong Bay Floater, only multi-day junk boat and kayak tours. This will allow you to maneuver emerald green waters between countless limestone karst formations. Talk about a D5/T5 adventure of a lifetime!   

After hopping onboard your vessel, take time to marvel at the unique landscape filled with majestic Sea Eagles and the extremely rare Cat Ba Langur. Pro Tip: once you dock south of Ti-Tov (Titop) Island, kayak as close as you can to the coordinates then search for the cache from there. You’ll undoubtedly pass one of the countless fishermen who live in floating villages within about 579 square miles (932 km) of Halong Bay.

Although Halong Bay is a World Heritage Site, there are still locals that dump their trash in the bay. For this reason, it is important for geoachers to represent the tourism and geocaching communities well and show their best Cache in and Trash Out skills. If you have any questions, Cache Owner, thetourguide, has led thousands of people to this gorgeous location and may be able to answer them!

On a wonderful holiday we visited this place and found this cache. We love Vietnam and say thank you to the owner of the cache for showing us this place. Halong Bay was awesome and we meet some friendly people. We did a 3 day boat trip and had plenty of time.

Best wishes from German cacher

We stayed anchored on a boat very close so we were able to hire a kayak and take a paddle to this cache, the waters here are mirror surfaced making paddling very easy and enjoyable. As we were paddling we saw a school of 5 very big fish swim past us.

Everywhere you look there are picture opportunities. TFTC
