We charted a single bedroomed luxury craft to sail three days around Halong Bay.
Upon arrival we were introduced to the Captain and crew members and host for the tour and set sail early afternoon for an unknown destination in the Bay.
During the tour the tour guide provided details of our itinerary and… More

My wife and I took a 3 day, 2 night tour of Halong, Bai Tu Long Bay.
The boat had one air-conditioned cabin with en-suite bathroom with shower. There was electricity available. Generator during the day and battery at night.
The cabin was OK. Bed was made of foam and foam pillows too. Room quality was… More

The staff on the boat were SUPER, from Thao, our wonderful guide, Khang the captain, Dad our mechanic who quietly went about his duties without intrusion. And of course Chien, our wonderful chef, whose creations were the the best! Thao's coffee was the best I had in Vietnam. The entire crew worked seamlessly.… More

The condition of the boat was in need of maintenance. Like the varnish on the decks needing sanding and varnishing. The bed mattress was foam and not comfortable, and the pillows were not comfortable either. There was no air flow in the bathroom from the air conditioning

I would highly recommend this cruise to any body who is planning to visit Ha Long Bay. The boat itself is beautiful, and the cabin as good as a hotel room. It's manned by a friendly crew of four (including the tour guide), with the Captain, Dinh and mechanic, Leit, the crew members you will see most… More

We enjoyed ourselves very much on the cruise and couldn’t have asked for a better time. It was the highlight of our trip!
We had a blast on the trip. Everybody has seen Ha Long Bay on pictures, but being there is truly majestic. The 2D3N-cruise that we did enabled us to go further then most of the… More

This was a private 2-day trip in Halong Bay with an overnight stay on a Junk. We had Princess # 2.It was bigger than I expected with a good sized double bed and ensuite facilities. So much room just for the two of us! We have a quick safety briefing and then the crew assembles to be introduced to us… More

It’s a small boat no Wi-Fi and often there is no GPS signal. Maybe different on a bigger boat .

The food and service were phenomenal. We couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful 4 days (well, maybe a touch more sun and blue sky,… More

Normally, the distance from Hanoi to Halong Bay is about 170 km. Shuttle Bus takes you around 3.5 hours, included haft-hour for break time from Hanoi to Halong Bay. If you go by private car, it takes around 3 hours.

On the other hand, there is another route which only takes you about 2.5 hours for travelling to Halong Bay. You can hire a car or buy a ticket of a VIP bus to travel from Hanoi city centre to Halong Bay through the new Hanoi - Hai Phong highway, which shortens the distance between Hanoi - Halong to about more than 150km.

However, there will be a fee for the new highway which is about 6.5 USD/turn/car and that is the reason why the price for transportation through this new route is a little bit higher than the old one.

Activities you can take part in during within a Cruise program is: Movie Night, Board Games, visiting Floating village, go fishing, cooking class, kayaking or swimming, biking, climbing… It depends on each cruise and the length of Cruise program as 02 days or 03 days. Please see more details in cruise itineraries.
Cruise itinerary and schedule are subject to change upon weather and operations conditions.
Halong Bay is a very suitable place for honeymoon, wedding anniversary or birthday vacation. Depend on your budget, you can join a sharing cruise or take a private cruise. But all our cruise partners have activities to celebrate for your special occasions such as decorating your bed with rose petals in a heart shape, giving chocolate or birthday cake...
