In Hanoi you will find plenty of agencies that offer tours to Halong Bay. Usually they offer one-, two- and three-days trips. One day is definetly not enough to visit the bay. Only the bus ride from Hanoi to Ving Ha Long takes almost five hours! With the one-day excursion you will only be able to do a small boat tour. Two days is the minimum stay I recommend. If you add a third day, you will be able to sleep in one of the islands, Cat Ba Island for instance.
