Our most popular and time-efficient trip gets you two long range days plus two half days in the Bay. This allows you a foray to the Triple Hong and Fish Farm Islands one day, and the Island maze on the next. If you come this far, you deserve to see both amazing days. Still, with more than a thousand islands, even four days in the Bay is just a taste.

Similar to our Six-Day itinerary, which adds more outer islands.
