Sail through the spectacular landscapes of Ha Long Bay on this unforgettable two-day cruise: discover Vietnamese nature and culture on board a luxury ship!
Ha Long Bay 2 Day Cruise
Having picked you up from the centre of Hanoi, we'll hit the road towards the port of Tuần Châu, located on the northeast coast of Vietnam, where our cruise ship will be waiting for us.
Once we've settled into our cabins, the boat will set sail on Ha Long Bay. From the panoramic decks on board, we'll have unparalleled views of the extraordinary natural environment surrounding us, characterised by its small islands and karsts. Its dreamy landscapes, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, will leave you speechless.
At around midday, we'll enjoy a delicious typical Vietnamese lunch served in the boat's restaurant, which has large windows to contemplate the surrounding scenery. Then, after eating, we'll swap the cruise ship for a kayak and paddle around Ha Long Bay. During this kayak tour, which will last approximately one and a half hours, we'll follow our English-speaking guide over the sparkling turquoise waters and through a hidden cave. Our efforts will be rewarded as we take in the impressive karst formations in the bay!
Our kayak tour will end with us returning to the boat to get changed before attending a beer yoga class at sunset on deck. The ideal activity to relax after an intense day!
When the sun has finally set on the horizon, it'll be time for dinner, and we can relax while enjoying Ha Long Bay at night. If you're still feeling energetic, make the most of the DJ playing on board to dance the night away, before heading to your cabin to sleep.
Energised after a hearty breakfast on the boat, we'll continue to discover Vietnamese cuisine attending a cooking class on board. The ship's chef will introduce us to the country's most popular ingredients and recipes while we continue to sail around Ha Long Bay. If you wish, the class can be adapted to make the dishes vegetarian.
At the end of our Vietnamese cooking workshop, we'll get to taste everything we've made, enjoying a mouth-watering lunch of all the delicacies we've prepared. After lunch, you'll have free time to sunbathe on the loungers on deck or to take a dip in the outdoor hot tubs while you admire the incredible views of Vietnam's most famous bay.
Finally, we'll dock back at the Tuần Châu port, and from there we'll make the return journey to Hanoi by minibus, arriving back at around 5 pm.
You'll stay on board the Royal Sails 2, the second largest cruise ship in Ha Long Bay. The five-story ship has great facilities, including three onboard hot tubs, a common area and more. All cabins are private with their own bathroom and balcony overlooking the bay.
