Afternoon in Haiphong: What to do with luggage?

Afternoon in Hai Phong, what to do with luggage? Here’s a question I just read somewhere. I think it is a very good question as I know a lot of tourists in Hai Phong have the same question. Most of these people have just traveled to Ha Long 2 days 1 night or 3 days 2 nights. All cruises on Ha Long Bay arrive at harbor before 12 o’clock. And if they plan to stay in Hai Phong to wait for their late flight, they’ll need something to do. And in this article, I will give you suggestions!

Go to Elephant Mountain in the afternoon

Elephant Mountain An Lao is a mountain located 20km from Hai Phong city center. Late afternoon in Hai Phong, standing on the top of this mountain, you will see the beautiful sunset with the sparkling river, immense rice fields. Before that, you can visit 2 famous caves in the mountain which are Elephant Throat cave and Gia Vi cave. In the caves, there are many shimmering and beautiful stalactites. Including transfer time, you can spend 3 hours here.

What about your luggage? If you move here yourself, there’s no solution to store it. And you may need to carry with you. I do not think it’s good to make. When you book Hai Phong car transfer service provided by Hai Phong Tours, you can leave it in car safely. Certainly, you should bring valuable things with you such as money, camera …
