Halong Bay Cruise

Halong Bay Cruise

Standing peacefully amongst the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin, the only way to explore the sheer, karst pinnacles of Halong Bay is by boat. The slow pace of the ship as it weaves its way through the sentinel peaks allows you to really luxuriate in your breathtaking surroundings – be it from a lounged position on the ship’s sun deck or from your comfortable cabin. This often otherworldly destination is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and has a wealth of caves, grottoes and islands to explore and exciting activities to partake in, both on the water or by it. So book your Vietnam tour with a Halong Bay criuse today!
