HANOI – HALONG & BAI TU LONG BAYS (L/D)
Accommodation: Onboard the Treasure Junk
This morning at 8:00 we will proceed to check-in at Bao Yen's head office and will be leaving on our shuttle bus to Halong City. Upon arrival, we will board the Treasure Junk and start to cruise towards the boundaries of Halong bay while a delicious lunch with fresh seafood is served (vegetarian and kid’s menus available).
Make yourself at ease and just relax after lunch. Hundreds of emerging limestone rock formations will parade all around us for about 2 hours before our first stop. We will reach then the perfect spot, where the waters of Halong and Bai Tu Long hit and wave together. Let's get ready for a closer look at the water and explore the bay in depth paddling on our own kayak.
We’ll get back on the cruise before sunset when we will be able to enjoy a cocktail on board while we will sail till the anchorage area where we will spend the night offshore. The dinner will be served either inside or outside on the deck, depending on weather conditions. Overnight on board in our cozy air-conditioned cabin with en-suite bathroom.
Note: On our way to Halong, we will stop at a place with food, beverages, and souvenirs for sale. Please bear in mind that we are not trying to incite you to buy any product. This is just the only place on the way with proper facilities that our travelers, guide, and driver can use without being forced to buy anything. Thanks for your understanding.
HALONG – HANOI (Brunch)
Meals: Brunch | Accommodation: Not included
Wake up smoothly while witnessing the silence of the beautifully misty bay. From 6:30 am, coffee, tea and cakes will be served. We will be free to join a 30-minute Tai Chi session at the first light of dawn, organized by our Tai Chi master on board, so we will have the chance to energize our body, mind, and soul, although if we prefer, we can simply enjoy a sunbath with a cup of coffee.
We will hop later on a bamboo boat to visit a secluded floating village surrounded by mountains. We will trace our way among numerous floating houses and small rowing boats that are used in everyday life as a vehicle, itinerant shops, fishing utility, and even sometimes as an overnight shelter.
We will be back on the Treasure before 9:00 am to start cruising back to the pier. From 9.30, a brunch will be served. Take a last glance at the emerging rocks, standing still as the eternal guardians of a kingdom, we are about to reach the pier.
Once in Terra Firma, we will be transferred from Halong to Hanoi.
IMMERSING OURSELVES IN THE ATMOSPHERE OF THE BAY (B/L/D)
Accommodation: Onboard the Treasure Junk
The breakfast will be served from 7:15 am. However, if you wish, we invite you to share a cup of tea or coffee and take part at 6:30 am in a Tai Chi session before breakfast.
Around 8:30 am, we will board a smaller boat that will bring us even farther from the touristy area, till the hidden nooks of the archipelago. It will be a day of fun and relaxation. More chances to kayak, to swim, to enjoy a sandy beach, more floating houses, more tasty cuisine, definitely a cruise "with capital letters".
The program will depend on the tide and weather conditions, but we can guarantee that this full-day surrounded by the endless immensity of the waters of Halong archipelago will be worth it.
We will enjoy our lunch on a traditional boat, being back on the Treasure Junk before the sunset. Time to make ourselves comfortable before our tasty dinner and the second night
You’ll back to the Treasure Junk before the sun goes down. Time to refresh and to make yourself cozy on the sundeck. Dinner will be served again either in the dining room or on the deck and have the second night on board.
