Unlike more common three-day two-night cruises which use transfer boats, guests will remain on the same Au Co for the entire trip to have the best Ha Long Bay tour experience.

The Au Co is a large steel vessel with 32 cabins, providing first-class facilities that guarantee a cruise of the utmost comfort. This boat runs only for 3 day/ 2 night program bringing you further into the Bay to untouched island so you can experience its distinctive geology, local history and endemic flora and fauna.

  • Free round trip transfer Hanoi – Ha Long Bay by regular shuttle bus.
  • Free letter for visa on arrival * (stamp fee is not included).
  • Free kayaking.

(*) Vietnam Visa on Arrival (VOA) is quite different from the normal “on Arrival” concept. If you wish to do the VOA service here, you need to employ an agent in Vietnam (like our hotel) to obtain an official of approval letter for VOA before you arrive. Later, at the airport this letter must be showed together with your valid passport to get the Visa stamped.


Au Co Cruise features luxurious 32 cabins over 4 decks, one of the largest boats in Ha Long Bay at the moment. From the luxury restaurant to the spa and private open air jacuzzi, aboard The Au Co’s passengers are offered the same facilities you would expect in a luxury hotel.

This was a brilliant two days. I would recommend the trip to anyone and hope to repeat it some day. The cabin was great and the food delicious. It was a great way to see one of the natural wonders of the world.



Couple Traveller

Well organised with great activities. The staff were lovely and food great. Would highly recommend to anyone travelling to Halong Bay.



Couple Traveller

Sheer perfection. The boat, crew, activities, food, scenery, weather…all perfect. Do yourself a favour and do 2 nights…it would have been so disappointing to go back after 1. I could have stayed longer…

The staff ans crew made this a truly amazing experience. Seeing the fishing village and walking to the village provided us with real experiences and with few tourists.



Couple Traveller

Was a fabulous Criuse. The crew were fantastic. The food was fantastic. The rooms were great. The tours off the ship were great. We got upgraded and it was fantastic. Definetly worth doing the two nights.
