Hanoi – Ha Long Bay
Welcome aboard and sail through Ha Long Bay. Allow your eyes to swim across the azure waters of this magical place, where thousands of sculpted limestone islands rise from the water like gigantic teeth of dragons.
A delectable lunch is served shortly after boarding and you find yourself getting acquainted with the facilities of the boat. The boat starts to cruise into the Bay and within the first hour you can enjoy this World Heritage Site.
A first visit will take our guests by tender to the Tien Ong Cave. The Cave is very large – about 1,000 sqm – and is peppered with beautiful stalactites and stalagmites, formed out of ancient limestone karsts about 700,000 years ago. The cave is five meters above sea level. This visit will last approximately 20 minutes (we strongly recommend that you do not wear high heel shoes for this excursion).
The voyage continues with the arrival at the Cua Van Fishing Village, the biggest and oldest floating fishing village in Ha Long Bay. The village is explored via a pleasant boat ride (a maximum of four persons per boat). You will pass through this ancient village which comprises fishing boats and floating houses – simply irresistible.
After returning to the boat in the late afternoon guests can sharpen their culinary skills at our cooking class performance conducted by our energetic chef. Surely you can give him a helping hand any time and try your skills in preparing special Vietnamese dishes. The boat cruises slowly with the evening sun to its mooring point. If not now, when then is it time to enjoy a massage or at least to quaff a drink – in the miraculous descending sun – on our Sundeck.
At 7:30PM another delicious meal – dinner is served. After dinner the night is yours; kick back on a comfy pillowed chair or watch the stars from the Sundeck and inhale the surreal beauty whilst sipping a glass of wine.
Not many places in the world offer those special feelings. The mooring place is a fantastic overnight spot with glittering lights from the other boats and a calm sea, perfect for your first dream in the middle of the Bay where once Dragons played amid sparkling jewels.
Ha Long Bay – Hanoi
For early risers complimentary tea, coffee and pastries are served in the restaurant followed by-if you so desire – a Tai Chi Class on the Sundeck (7:00AM). A great morning activity to feel one with this natural wonder.
Then it is time for an early morning swim – in the Bay. By tender boat we bring the guests to a natural white sandy stretch. Sporty ones can also climb up to a hill top to have a last view from above over Ha Long Bay before we return to the boat and cruise slowly back to Ha Long City, passing picturesque areas like the Tam Cung Cave and Poem Mountain.
During our trundle breakfast is served before we arrive at the shore at around 11:00AM. The crew will bid you farewell and you disembark with our tender boat to Tuan Chau Marina.
Drive back to Hanoi and drop off at your hotel.
