Soar above the natural wonders of Halong Bay — sprinkled with impressive limestone karsts and caves — and join a 2-day cruise aboard a traditional wooden junk called L’Azalee. Dine on traditional Vietnamese fare and international dishes, with one breakfast, two lunches and one dinner included. Enjoy a hot shower in your en suite bathroom, a dining room and licensed cash bar with an extensive wine list, a sun deck with adjustable sun lounges, and the attention of a professional crew.


Day 1: Hanoi — Halong Bay (L, D)Upon morning pickup from your hotel in Hanoi, settle into an air-conditioned shuttle bus for the 1-hour transfer to Noi Bai International Airport. After checking in at the seaplane counter, hop aboard your 12-seat, fixed-wing aircraft — a Cessna Grand Caravan 208B-EX capable of taking off from and landing on water.
Leave the noise of the city behind as you put on your audio headset and listen to informative commentary from the professional pilot. Once you’re up in the air, take in the impressive views of Hanoi and beyond as you fly 45 minutes to Halong Bay.
Called the ‘Bay of Descending Dragons’ in Vietnamese, Halong Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage site with almost 2,000 islands and jungle-clad limestone pillars rising from the emerald-green waters. Marvel at sweeping aerial views over this magnificent landscape, spotting the islands of Cong Do and Ba Ham with their lovely lagoons before flying out toward Dau Be on the edge of the Gulf of Tonkin.
Experience the thrill of a water landing at the Tuan Chau Marina, where you’re taken to a comfortable lounge to wait for a small tender to transport you to your overnight cruise. Enjoy perks like water, a cold towel and complimentary WiFi before you’re whisked away at midday with an expert crew to L’Azalee, a beautifully restored traditional wooden junk.
Take a seat in the dining room for a lunch of Vietnamese and international cuisine. A selection of beers, cocktails, wines and other beverages can be ordered from the bar (own expense).
If you’d like, spend your afternoon sunbathing on the spacious deck, and admire the sublime beauty of the limestone karsts jutting out of the jewel-like bay. Or explore the region by kayak, discovering sea caves and secluded lagoons with an expert guide who describes the rocky promontories dotting the bay. You’ll also have the opportunity to fish, snorkel and swim, and visit a fish farm for an authentic glimpse of local life.
In the evening, dine on fresh seafood for dinner before retiring to your cabin for the night, with window views of the bay and mountains. Each room has wooden flooring and features a private bathroom with a shower and complimentary toiletries.
Overnight: Traditional wooden junk boat on Halong Bay
Day 2: Halong Bay – Hanoi (B, L)Wake with the sun and watch as the dawn breaks over Halong Bay. You might like to take an early morning dip or do a bit of tai chi before breakfast.
Then venture off to the Cave of Surprises (Sung Sot Cave) located on Bo Hon Island, which is actually a set of linked limestone islets. The largest grotto in Halong Bay, the cave features fascinating formations created over time, including multiple stalactites hanging from its high ceiling.
After walking along lit pathways on a guided tour, enjoy another delicious lunch aboard the junk boat.
Then cruise back to the Tuan Chau Marina and bid your crew a fond farewell. You'll transfer to an awaiting shuttle for the roughly 4-hour drive back to Hanoi, arriving late in the afternoon. End your tour with hotel drop-off upon reaching the capital.
