Halong Bay

 

Halong Bay is a stunning limestone sea-scape about 3.5 hours’ drive from Hanoi and is a highlight for many on a tour of Vietnam.

A Halong Bay Cruise is a great experience and whatever the weather, the beauty of the bay is outstanding and cruising on a traditional junk is a very relaxing experience.

Cruising Halong Bay is best done as an overnight trip, in order to really experience the beauty of Halong Bay. We only recommend the best vessels for our cruises on Halong Bay.

The Halong Ginger and the Halong Jasmine, both offer a very personalised experience and high standards whilst Paradise Cruises offers one of the best overnight cruises on Halong Bay. It is even possible to cruise Halong Bay in a private one-cabin junk.

Halong Bay Cruises

We co-operate with only a handful of the best cruise operators in Halong Bay.

Choosing your Halong Bay cruise can be a bit of a minefield with so many operators, many of whom operate on the borderline of safety or who offer an experience which has compromises from start to finish.

Search 'Halong Bay Cruise' on google and you will find any number of websites, many of whom purport to be the 'official website' of the cruise operator but who are simple local travel agents.

The following Halong Bay cruises offer the best experiences for discovering Halong Bay.

Heritage Line Cruises

Heritage Line offer a selection of traditional Vietnamese-style junks, including the Halong Jasmine, Halong Ginger and Halong Violet.

Halong Ginger is the original of Heritage Line's three Halong Bay Cruise vessels - known as the 'Three Sisters'.

Built to resemble a traditional wooden junk, the elegant and serene Halong Ginger features wood-paneled lounges, shimmering silks and Indochine-style furnishings.

Simple yet elegant, the cabins feature large windows – perfect for viewing the Bay’s ever-changing scenery.

There are just 10 cabins on the Halong Ginger, making this a genuine boutique cruise experience.

The Halong Jasmine is the middle sister, twice the size of the Ginger, with 23 cabins.

Heritage Line prides itself on exceptional service and the Jasmine is no exception.

Jasmine’s interiors, like the exterior, are covered in polished wood, lending the Jasmine the stately air of an Indochina-era cruising boat.

The younger sister is the Halong Violet. Small and exquisite, the Violet has just 6 cabins and offers a truly boutique Halong Bay cruise.

Halong Violet has all the amenities of larger vessels however, including a gym and sauna, a spa with unrivalled views, a restaurant and a lounge, and a rooftop Sundeck.

Cabins with floor to ceiling windows are the real highlight however.

For an intimate experience of Halong Bay, there is nothing to compare to the lovely Violet, one of the most beautiful vessels cruising Halong Bay.

Paradise Cruises

Paradise Cruises four Luxury vessels each offer around 15 cabins and are amongst the best Halong Bay cruise vessels.

Designed in the style of traditional Vietnamese junks, Paradise Cruises offer spacious cabins, a high standard of dining and a top deck with panoramic 360-degree views of the bay.

One and Two night cruises are offered and are highly commended by our clients.

Emeraude

The Emeraude, in contrast to the traditional Vietname-style junks of Heritage Line and Paradise Cruises is a replica French colonial-era steamer.

The vision of a French entrepeneur inspired by a chance discovery of a postcard in a Paris flea-market, the Emeraude has brought back to life a classic era of cruising Halong Bay.

Cabins are very smartly furnished, although you will need a Suite if space is important.

Dining is of a high standard and facilities include spa treatments and early morning Tai-Chi sessions.

Caves

All of the itineraries in Halong Bay include a visit to some spectacular caverns hewn out of the limestone cliffs over the millenia.

Spectacularly lit, the caverns are easily explored along boardwalks, with no walking difficulties.

Kayaking

All of the Halong Bay Cruises we feature offer kayaking although some charge a supplement for the use of kayaks.

Some free time is built into the cruise itineraries to allow time for kayaking around the bay.

Relax

Halong Bay is one of the most scenic destinations in Vietnam.

Enjoy a relaxing spa treatment on board one of Heritage Line's Halong Bay cruises, soak in the sun and the views from the sun deck or be up early for a Tai Chi session on deck shortly after sunrise.

Hiking

Most itineraries in Halong Bay stop for a short walk up to an island viewpoint, a great chance to stretch the legs and for panoramic photo opportunities of the Bay.
