There is much to see and do in this area. There is just about something for all age groups. One of the most popular tours over recent years has been the trips to castaway Island. This party Island is a big hit with the many groups of backpackers that head out here every year. Many of the travelers head for one of the Hanoi Backpacker’s Hostels and take trips out to Halong Bay to enjoy the drinks, fun and games.
The castaway island tour boats offer the opportunity to meet like minded people and experience guided canoeing and kayaking through tiny fishing villages and lagoons, caving, rock climbing, wake-boarding, tubing and generally exploring the islands of Halong Bay. You also get the superb chance to sleep aboard a beautiful boat, organised island activities and great food. Most agree these tours are worth the extra expense. On this recent trip however, the tour price had increased and the activities had substantially decreased. Some trips still include one night onboard a luxury cruise boat others involve boarding a ferry that will take you straight to Castaway Island. Once one the island the groups of young people drink, eat, party and have fun for two days. The beach volleyball is a big hit with the backpackers as are the late night beach parties.

But if your idea of fun is staying on a beautiful island with a group of like minded individuals, drinking all night long and partying hard, then this will be just the job for you. The great thing with these trips are the friendships made, many of which last much longer than the holiday. Many groups say that they we were lucky enough to have a great group of people with them and so enjoyed the organised part of the tour, that they spent much time afterwards, kayaking the surrounding lagoons under their own steam. Not for the faint hearted that’s for sure, but fun pact and high energy times to be had by all.
