How to Book

Discover Ha Long Bay

Enjoy an extra 3-days and 2-nights discovering a spectacular slice of Northern Vietnam, cruising and touring the emerald waters of Ha Long Bay, the dramatic UNESCO World Heritage geological site.

The towering limestone cliffs of Ha Long Bay are arguably among the most beautiful and unusual natural wonders in all of Asia. Hugging Vietnam’s far northeastern coast in the Gulf of Tonkin, Ha Long Bay is dotted with more than 1,000 limestone islands and islets, holding a wide range of biodiversity as well as surrealistic scenery.

It’s often written that no trip to Vietnam is complete without visiting this spectacular site,  and we agree. Yes, crowds have come, along with its notoriety, but we’ve gone out of our way to provide you with an unforgettable, private sailing and seafaring experience. Kayaking, swimming and exploring by day, relaxing in luxurious accommodations by night and savoring fine dining onboard in beautiful surroundings. We welcome you aboard our Ha Long Bay extension, a once in a lifetime experience and a fitting conclusion to our Essential Vietnam tour.
