Cruising through the famous UNESCO World Heritage Site Halong Bay is one of the most memorable experience one can get when travelling in Vietnam. Just only two hours from Hanoi and you embark on a genuine overnight journey aboard Heritage Line’s extraordinary small, luxurious ship to explore this destination to the fullest.
This cruise offers a fantastic adventure to discover some of the most classic sights in the bay. Guests have the choice between 1 or 2-night intineraries. The 2-night program is the recommended option as it includes attractions that are very unique to the bay and a must-see once visiting Halong Bay.
The 1-night cruise includes a visit of a former floating fishing village as well as a mall (archeological) cave on the first day, whilst the second day allows guests to do some swimming a nice stretch of beach in the morning hours. A highlight is an early morning hill-top hike that rewards with great views on “Kodak-moments” on the bay from above. The 2-night stay adds the so-called unique and classic sights: Guest explore the largest cave in the bay and visit a local pearl farm to understand the cultivation and harvesting of pearl. A kayak tour in a quite lagoon is included as well.
Both itineraries are operated aboard luxurious ship Heritage Line VIOLET. A 6-suite vessel only offering utmost privacy and an unmatched onboard atmosphere. The cabins aboard this exclusive Art-Deco-Indochinese designed ship come all with private balcony, floor-to-ceiling glass doors, a sofa lounge and large bathroom with walk-in shower and Jacuzzi.
It is the perfect home for honeymooners or romance-seeking couples looking for privacy and comfort. En-suite dining or a private candlelit dinner underneath the stars on the sun deck can be arranged upon request. The two spa rooms (one with steam bath) invite with soothing treatment of therapies. Other activities onboard are squid fishing, cooking demonstration or just soaking in the moment during sunset on the quiet sun deck.
Complimentary available on board is Wifi, luxury in-suite amenities, drinking water, coffee & tea station in restaurant, sun beds, pool and kayak usage (2 Night stay’s only), and in-room service (upon request). The cruise price includes all excursions and full-board dining.
|Departure upon request
(Transportation from Hanoi to Halong Bay is not included in the cruise cost.) (A shuttle bus or private vehicle may be arranged for an extra fee.)
The boat sets out for a cruise around the Bay. Start getting acquainted with the onboard amenities. In the kitchen, a delectable buffet lunch with a feast of options is served. Allow your eyes to roam around the landscape as you enjoy your first hours in Halong Bay on the sun deck.
We arrive in the vicinity of the Cua Van floating fishing settlement. From here, we begin our exploration of Tien Ong Cave and the floating fishing village. Tien Ong is the most recent cave to be discovered. It displays signs of human culture dated from 10,000 to 8,000 BC. The cave is just 5 meters above sea level, 50 meters wide, and 1,000 square meters in size. Our guide leads you on a tour of the cave, explaining the past discoveries and the cave’s unique features.
The journey to the fishing village begins. We drive about in the tranquil sea of this secluded area in a small bamboo boat rowed by locals, gaining insight into village life.
After returning to the boat, we sail to the Luom Bo overnight mooring area. During this time, Halong Bay shows its most majestic elegance, which we refer to as the “blue hour.” Relax on the sun deck with a drink of your choosing and take in the moment. During the sailing, our Chef also shows the preparation of specific Vietnamese dishes. You are welcome to enter and train on your own.
Dinner is served either à la carte or buffet-style in the kitchen. Following that, the night is yours to sit back and abundantly appreciate these one-of-a-kind moments amidst a surreal landscape. After dinner, a presentation in our dining area with additional fascinating information and perspectives on Halong Bay is also available.
