What you can expect

Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Halong Bay on this 2-day cruise from Hanoi. Enjoy views from your luxurious vessel, and marvel at the wonders of Vietnam, including paradisiacal Titop Island, tranquil Luon Cave, and the breathtaking rock formations of Me Cung cave.

On your first day, depart from your Hanoi hotel and arrive at the marina of Halong Bay, where a refreshing drink welcomes you aboard your cruise. Set sail on the calm waters and revel in the natural scenery while enjoying a delicious lunch. In the afternoon, visit Titop Island, where you can swim, sunbathe, or hike. Later, in the Luon Cave area, kayak over tranquil waters and bask in the breathtaking views around you.

Back on board your cruise, relax until dusk, when you're summoned to the deck for a small sunset party. Watch the sun sink below watery horizon as you enjoy seasonal fruits and dinner. Your evening is filled with on-board activities, including singing, cooking demonstrations, and squid fishing, before you retire to your cabin.

On your second day, rise early to witness the marvellous sunrise and join a traditional Tai Chi session. Visit the amazing Me Cung cave (Maze Cave), where stalagmites and stalactites cover the floor and ceiling. Also see an incredible blue lake surrounded by mountains, and learn about the local people who lived in the cave thousands of years ago. At the end of your trip, relish a buffet brunch before returning to the marina for the drive back to your hotel.

Better than expected, mainly due to wonderful staff. Heavy rain spoiled the first day, buut second day great. Our boat was excellent, good safety standards, and good local vietnamese food with some expat choices.

Not quite luxury but was still brilliant. It’s the people that make it and the staff onboard were just great. Would happily recommend!

スタッフは一生懸命なのがよくわかった。英語のスタッフなので、よくわからない。私たちを 楽しませる努力を一生懸命してくれて、こちらが無視わけなく想うぐらいだった。食事もよく、好みもきいてくれた。部屋も古くは有るが、清潔である種のノスタルジアを感じるほどであった。客室の設備 なども 良い。

Halong Bay has long been on my bucket list and it didn’t disappoint. The cruise was great, the staff very attentive. It seems crazy to complain but there was way too much food which was mostly wasted with 7 courses for dinner and lunch. Activities were well organised with options for less fit.
