Day 1: HANOI – HALONG BAY (L, D)

 

AM: at around 8.20 - 8.30 , you will be picked up at your hotel's lobby, then transfer for 3.5 hour driving North East; the bus ride will take you over the Red River and through the country side of our second biggest delta to reach Halong Bay.

Dropped off at Tuan Chau International Marina – harbor of  Halong’s biggest island. From which you will be tendered to our Halong Phoenix Cruiser, welcome drinks would be immediately served for your refreshment while we hand over your cabin’s key.

PM: When you are putting all of your stuffs into your cabin, our boat starts gliding out to the center of the World Heritage Site. Your lunch, at the boat’s restaurant, is would be served with fresh local seafood, but vegetable menu is always available at your request.

From the marina area, our cruiser passes by Dog Head and Swan Islands, Ba Hang Floating villages (with floating houses), Incense Burner then Thumb Islands before reaching Surprising (Sung Sot) Cave.

At around 15h00, our boat will anchored for a short tender ride from the middle of the bay to an island for your visit to famous Sung Sot Cave. The cave visiting will take you about 1 hour (walking inside the limestone cave), then we tender you to visit and swim on Titop Island, which is not far from the cave. Here you can still challenge yourself by climbing up to the top, for a panoramic view, before heading back to swim on its sandy beach.

As the sun sets over the bay, we head back to our cruise and relax. Coffee, tea and fruits will be available on the sundeck or you can order your favorite drink from our bar.

Halong Phoenix Cruiser keeps cruising to Coconut anchorage area, which is away from the crowded centre - where most other boats stay, for our overnight escape.

Dinner would be served with typically local seafood, you are then free to either drink or experience squid fishing before heading to your bed

Overnight on cruise

 

Day 2: HALONG BAY - HANOI (B, L)

 

Am: You should not miss waking up early in the sunrise time for a breath taking and practicing Tai Chi on sundeck, the stunning vista of the serene bay is always best experience of staying overnight on boat. We serve you buffet breakfast from 7h30, then we have time to gear up for one hour kayaking around Luom Bo area (provincial border between Quang Ninh province and Cat Ba National Park of Hai Phong).

Our guide will show you some basic safety guidelines and techniques to paddle before helping you to sit on our brand new sit-on-top kayaks. Kayaking area is so quite that you will feel like the bay is remaining untouched, you will see neither other boat nor other kayakers beyond your group and our Phoenix Cruiser.

On the cruising way back, we cruise on a different way so that you can see new areas and viewing islands from a different side. At around 10h00, we arrange a cooking demonstration on boat to show you how to make real Vietnamese spring rolls, just before lunch time: you will learn recipes and techniques that go into the most popular dish of the Vietnamese food.

Lunch would be served on boat when you are close to the harbor. You say goodbye to Halong Phoenix Cruiser at around 12h00, we tender you back to the harbor.

Pm: Our bus is already waiting for you at the marina to take you back to Hanoi, we leave Halong Bay and Tuan Chau Island around 12h30.

Trip ends at your hotel around 16h30

there are many companies offering cruises in Ha long bay and i was worried that i would get a bad one (i've heard some bad stories about old boats in bad condition) but thanks to Thaison hotel staff who had helped us booking 2 nights on the Phoenix. it wasn't the nicest boat in the bay (you can see all of the other boats fairly closely as you travel around) but the service was at the first class. nice room, friendly staff and good food. That's all what you expect from a good cruise, and the price was much better than other travel agent so we were very happy with our choice.

lso, be prepared for the 30m "bathroom" break at the tourist trap (shop). Although, it seems like most tour companies stop at some sort of shop on the way to/ from Halong. All in all, Halong Phoenix is a good choice if you're on a budget, but don't expect luxury!

the water is a little bit overpriced but it's OK
