Cruise Halong

Halong Bay, Vietnam

Cruise through Vietnam’s most famous bay, where floating villages huddle at the foot of mountains that rise from the sea

Imperious Halong Bay – a Unesco World Heritage site that resembles the set of a James Bond movie – has 1,500 forested limestone karsts rising sharply from the azure waters of the Gulf of Tonkin. You zip up from Hanoi early in the morning, then decant onto one of these wonderful junks for a rather good lunch while sailing through magical landscape, stopping off to check out beaches, snorkelling in crystal clear waters, cruising past floating villages, then anchoring up amid magnificent scenery before tucking into a 5-course dinner.

After a nightcap on the top deck, drop down to your cabin for a good night’s sleep and find comfy beds, shiny wood, huge views and fancy showers. Sleep with your curtains open and wake to magical views. In the morning there’s tai chi on the deck (your teacher’s performance is quite sublime) and a trip to mountain caves for the best views in the islands. Then you jump back on board for a leisurely brunch before heading onwards. Choose from Halong Ginger or the very fancy Halong Jasmine; either way, it's an unforgettable - if slightly touristy - experience.
