Welcome on board with Heritage Line on magnificent Ha Long Bay.

A medley of limestone pillars, tiny islets topped by forest rise from the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin. A World Heritage site since 1994, Ha Long Bay’s spectacular scenery is a visualization of ethereal beauty. Heritage Line invites you to explore it with us.

  • Free letter for visa on arrival * (stamp fee is not included).
  • 02 Spa coupons for a 45-min course (foot or back treatment) at Hanoi La Spa.

(*) 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.

Itinerary 2 days / 1 night

The boat sets sail to cruise into the Bay. Find yourself getting acquainted with the facilities onboard.
A delectable buffet lunch with a feast of choices is served in the restaurant. Savor your first hours in Ha Long
Bay on the sun deck by simply letting your eyes wander around the scenery.

We arrive at the area of Cua Van, a floating fishing village. From here we start to explore a cave, named
Tien Ong, and the floating fishing village. Tien Ong is the most recently explored cavem, Showing evidence
of human civilization dating back to 10,000 – 8,000 BC. The cave is just 5 meters above sea level, 50 meters
deep and covers 1,000 square meters. Our guide takes you on a loop though the cave and explains about the
historical findings and the cave’s particulars.

The voyage continues to the fishing village. With a small bamboo boat rowed by the local people we move
around in the calm sea of this secluded area and gain an insight into the village life. You can also paddle by
yourself in a kayak, which is a perfect way to freely move around in the calm area and experience the village

After returning to the boat we sail to the overnight mooring area Luon Bo. During this time Ha Long Bay
reveals its most magnificent beauty – called the “blue hour”. Rewind on the sun deck with a drink of your
choice and let this moment sink in. During sailing, our chef demonstrates the preparation of particular Vietnamese
dishes. Feel free to join and practice by yourself.

Dinner is served in the restaurant either à la carte or buffet style. Afterwards the night is yours to kick back
and abundantly enjoy these unique moments amidst a surreal landscape. A presentation with interesting
facts and insights on Ha Long Bay is also offered after dinner in the dining area.

We wish you a good night in Halong Bay, where once upon a time dragons played with sparkling jewels.


For early risers (around 6:30 am) tea, coffee and pastries are available in the dining room. A Tai Chi class is
offered on the sundeck to ease mind and muscles.

The boat sails to Ti Top Island. By tender boat we arrive at this little landmass in the Bay. Prepare yourself
for a refreshing morning swim on a sandy beach beneath high rock formations. If you prefer to be more
active, climb up to the hill to the top of Ti Top Island from where you have stunning views over Ha Long Bay.
It takes 400 stone steps up and about 20 minutes to the top, minimal fitness and proper footwear is required.
There is also a viewing platform about half-way up with great panoramic views.

Back on board (around 8:45 am) you may like to shower and freshen up. Enjoy the last sailing time back to
the harbor. A full breakfast is served in the dining room. Relax on the sun deck or in the dining room while
savoring the last cruise moments of this iconic site before arriving back on shore.

Our crew bids a fond farefell and helps with your belongings. Heritage Line and all the crew members thank
you very much for having you on board.

We booked this tour through Trailfinders and stayed on the Violet, one of the Heritage Line boats, for one night. Our boat had a crew of 18 and only 6 guests so we were pretty spoiled!
Mr Big, the cruise manager, was superb and nothing was too much trouble, his team really gave us some very special memories of our time here. We had one of the junior suites and the room was lovely with a small balcony so we could sit outside and watch the scenery go by. The bed was large and comfortable, there was a decent bathroom, plenty of power sockets and also a tv with some downloaded films (that we didn’t get time to watch!).
The boat had a small fitness room, sauna and massage area, dining area and then a large top deck with seating and a shaded area. The food was just superb and so much of it! It was all delicious and very well presented, combined with attentive service.
There was a program of excursions but they were a pain to be honest. We really didn’t have enough time on the boat to just relax and watch the scenery, the whole reason to be there!

The wife & I boarded the Violet run by Heritage Lines out of Halong Bay. Small, luxury junk ship with only 6 cabins, more intimate & personal. We toured all over the bay sightseeing all of the massive limestone karst and attractions. Stayed over one night & returned back to shore. Food was great, staff very friendly & attentive, rooms are around a 3-4 date, but considering the locale, it was luxurious. Highly recommended.

My wife & I did a one night Halong Bay cruise on the Heritage Line’s Violet in April. We stayed in an Imperial Suite (Phoenix Cabin) which was very spacious and had a balcony facing the front of the junk. The bathroom was large with a Jacuzzi tub and a separate shower.

The food was beautifully presented and generally very good although not always to our taste. Dinner main course was poor although our dietary requirements were catered for.

The off boat excursions were varied and interesting.

The crew were pleasant, friendly and helpful.

Overall an enjoyable way to see the beauty of Halong Bay.

We did an overnight stay on Violet in Halong Bay. The whole trip was magical. The boat is beautiful. We stayed in the ‘Moon’ suite which was very spacious and had a lovely balcony. The food was very good. My husband is very fussy and doesn’t eat any seafood so they made a real effort to ensure he had something he liked at mealtimes. We didn’t get off the boat for the cave/fishing village trip. We preferred to lounge on the top deck and enjoy the scenery. In the morning we joined the Tai Chi at 7am. Though we did the excursion to the beach we wished we had stayed on the boat. The beach was quite busy and didn’t really add to our overall enjoyment.
The staff are wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Being on a small boat was great. Everyone spoke with each other and it was very relaxing.



Family Traveller

We were lucky enough to have a 1 night cruise on the beautiful Violet during our 3 week tour of Vietnam. From start to finish everything ran like clockwork and the boat was absolutely gorgeous. Mr Big introduced himself as soon as we arrived at the departure lounge and on the dot of 12.30 we were escorted aboard. We had a welcome drink while he explained the itinerary of the cruise and shown the safety procedure. We were then shown to our Dragon suite which was beyond belief! A beautiful balcony, 4 huge Windows to enjoy the view, a huge bed and a bathroom with corner jacuzzi bath and separate shower!
After a delicious lunch it was time to board the tender to take us to explore a cave and then the fishing village by Sampan. On returning to the boat there was a cookery demonstration where we made fresh spring rolls and shortly after it was time for dinner. As it is a small boat you soon get chatting to the other guests and we had a lovely evening.
At 7am there was Tai Chi on deck and we were lucky enough to have a beautiful clear sunny morning. There was another excursion to an island after breakfast but I decided to stay on board to have a very relaxing massage instead as I’m not keen on crowds climbing steep steps all together, my husband said I made the right decision!
The only regret is that we did not have long enough on board to enjoy the luxurious facilities! This was an amazing trip that I will never forget. Thank you Mr Big!
