Vintage Junks



Included meals:  Lunch/ Dinner

Accommodation: Overnight on the private boat

​12:00 - Meet the cruise's operator at Ben Beo Wharf. Get on your private junk, enjoy a welcome drink, move around to learn about the boat and check into your cabin before cruising.

12:15 - Pull up the anchor and start your cruise. The junk firstly winds its way by a fishing village toward Lan Ha Bay. Not much different from Halong Bay featured with hundreds of limestone islands and islets. Lan Ha is smaller but the karst formations are close to each other, this makes Lan Ha Bay become the best place for kayaking and swimming activities.

13:15 - Anchor is dropped in the middle of the bay for lunchtime. If the weather is nice, your lunch will be served on the top where you are able to enjoy the scenery the best.

14:15 - After lunch, the junk will take you to visit a fish-farm where you will have many chances to witness some typical types of fish grown in the bay. The following stop is at Ba Trai Dao beaches. Getting off your boat and paddle your kayaks around the area for a while before swimming and sunbathing on the tiny beach.

16:30 - Start cruising toward Halong Bay from the beaches. You're really exploring a remote part of Halong Bay as you won't be on the same route with many boats from this "back door". This is also the time that you can have fun with your chef on the top-deck. At his cooking demonstration, he will show you how to make Vietnamese popular fried rolls. After some samples, of course, you will have a go and enjoy your work right after.

18:30 - Get the anchor dropped when you reach the night place in a remote corner of the World Heritage. Take more swim off the boat if you wish (This is more doable in the summertime as it's early and warm enough), otherwise, just relax until dinner time.

19:00 - Dinner is served with a set menu. Overnight on board.


Meals:  Breakfast/ Lunch/ Dinner

Accommodation: Spend the second night on boat

For early risers: The summer sunrise is about 6:00 AM; Winter sunrise is about 6:30 AM (Ask your captain for better information on the day). Otherwise, you can remain in your cabin until breakfast time.

07:30 - The engine is started and gets ready for the second day.

08:00 - Breakfast is served while you are cruising further to other parts of the bay include Coconut beach area.

08: 45 - Arrive at Vung Kiem Lam area, you are escorted to discover a hidden lake that can be accessed by only one tunnel-like cave (Hang Sang). Paddling around the lake to enjoy the quietness at this beautiful spot. After that, the junk will wind its way back to Lan Ha Bay.

12:00 - Lunch is served aboard.

13:30 -  Heading to Viet Hai dock where you will embark on a scenic cycling ride into a part of Cat Ba National Park, visit Viet Hai village, the only one community allowed to stay in the park area. For active explorers, your guide will take you further to the national park for a hike up to the summit of Hai Quan Mountain for a wonderful view over the park and a part of Halong Bay. (It's not recommended on a wet day as the trail is rather slippery.) Ride back to the boat to end the active afternoon.

17:30 - Anchoring at a scenic place in Lan Ha for the second night on the boat.

19:00 - Enjoy set-menu dinner. In the evening, you may try your luck with squid fishing before retiring in your cosy cabin.
