The boat sets sail to cruise into the Bay. Find yourself getting acquainted with the facilities on board.
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 fishing village. Tien Ong is the most recently explored cave in Ha Long Bay. It shows evidence
of human civilization dating back to 10,000 – 8,000 BC. The cave is just five 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. If you want you can
paddle by yourself in a kayak. This is a perfect way to freely move around in the calm area and experience
the village life.
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 – we call it 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.
Have a good night sleep in Ha Long Bay where once upon a time dragons played with sparkling jewels.
