Welcome on board with Ginger Cruise through the serene waters of Lan Ha Bay, the unknown extension of Halong Bay. Lan Ha Bay stretches almost all around the eastern coast line – from the northern to the southern tip – of Cat Ba Island, which is the largest island in this area. Discover with us the wondrous scenery of quiet waters dotted with limestone pillars and tiny islets cladded with forest vegetation rising from the emerald sea of the gulf of tonkin.
9:30 – 10:00: Pick up from Hanoi, transfer to Halong Bay by shuttle bus or private car (Not included in cabin price).
12:00: The luxurious Ginger sets sail around noontime. You are welcomed by a drink and the crew introduce a short cruise briefing. After checking-in to cabin, lunch is serve in the panorama view restaurant.
We arrive at the area of Cua Van floating fishing village. With a small bamboo boat rowed by the local people we move around in the calm sea of this secluded area and gain an insight into the village life. From here we start to explore a cave, named Tien Ong.
After returning to the boat we sail to the overnight mooring area Luom Bo. During this time Halong Bay reveals its most magnificent beauty – we call it the “blue hour”. Rewind on the sun deck with a drink of your choice and let the moment sink in. During the sailing time our Chef demonstrates as well the preparation of particular Vietnamese dishes.
19:00: Dinner is served in the restaurant either à la carte or buffet style. A presentation in our dining area with more interesting facts and insights on Halong Bay is also offered after dinner.
Day 2: Halong bay – Hanoi
6:30: Wake up early and join our Tai Chi session on sundeck to ease mind and start the day in the most fresh way.
7:30: The boat continues to sail to Titop Island. Prepare yourself for a refreshing morning swim on a sandy beach beneath high rock formations. If you prefer to be more active climb up to the hill top of Titop Island from where you have stunning views over Halong Bay
8:45: Back on board you may like to shower and freshen up. Now it is time to enjoy the last sailing time back to the harbor. A full breakfast is served in the dining room. Relax on the sun deck or dine in the restaurant while savoring the last cruise moments of this iconic site before arriving back on shore.
