Description

Halong Bay has been pursuing unsustainable development and wholesale commercial tourism, and it is now over-used by both day and overnight boats - weaving everyday through the same well-worn mass cruising route starting from old harbor.
However, there is still an alternative – Tuan Chau Marina, from which boats will cruise on less crowded route to approach the centre area. The cruising route take you through lots of well-know islands that tourist cruising on other routes can only imagine, Halong Phoenix Cruiser is now proud to bring this alternative to you!

Day 1: Hanoi – Halong Bay (L, D)

Am: We pick you up from your hotel at around 8h15 (we may do several picks up) 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.
You would be first 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 centre 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.

Day 2: Halong – Hanoi (B, L)

Am: You would love to rise a bit early for a breath taking , 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.
