 First Day

After you are collected from your hotel in Hanoi's city centre begins the 3-4 hour drive through the lush rice fields, agricultural lands and small country towns of the Red River Delta. Keep a look out for some of the quirks of Vietnamese traffic! There will be a rest break about halfway through the journey to stretch your legs and enjoy refreshments. Following your arrival at the Halong Tourist Wharf you will be transferred to your Emotion cruise by tender. Sip your specially prepared welcome cocktail while you listen to the cruise briefing and then at 12:30 the Captain weighs anchor and your trip begins. Lunch is an exploration of some of the most exquisite flavours of Vietnamese cuisine. 
 
After lunch the Ba Hang Floating Village in the Sampan area, and discover whole streets floating at the base of the limestone karsts. Back onboard the cruise, crepes are served on the sundeck. Spend the rest of the afternoon soaking up the sunlight, experience the karsts up close as you maneuver your kayak across the silken green waters, or enjoy a refreshing swim in the surrounding area. At 16:00 you are given the opportunity to learn more about the secrets behind on of the most popular Vietnamese dishes, both within Vietnam and internationally, at the cooking demonstration hosted by the talented chef. The newfound skill is sure to be a crowd pleaser upon your return home. 
 
The cruise will stop at Titop island, where guests have the option of climbing to the crown of the island for unparralleled views of the bay and one of the best photo opportunities of the trip, relaxing and maybe going for a dip at the beach, kayaking around the area or taking everything in from the sundeck back onboard. At 18h45 the cruise will drop anchor at the Ho Dong Tien area for the overnight stay before guests enjoy a culinary tapestry of international and Vietnamese flavors at the buffet dinner served in the dining room. The evening is spent at your leisure; make the most of the cruise's happy hour, or just recline and revel in the night scenery. 
 
Second day
 
Rise bright and early for an instruction in the ancient art of Tai Chi on the sundeck, starting from 6h00 and continuing through the sunrise. Follow this light and invigorating exercise with a light breakfast as the the cruise continues through Halong bay, past Trinh Nu Cave, Cua Van floating village, and Toad islet. At 8h30 the cruise will arrive at Surprise cave, where you will wander through vast caverns dripping with stalactites and walled with glittering cascades of thousand year old limestone. Return to the cruise and at 9h45 its time for check out and to leave your luggage outside your cabin for collection. Enjoy your last meal on board at 10h00 and then you cruise concludes at 11h30 when you disembark at the Halong Tourist wharf, where your shuttle will return you to Hanoi, estimated arrival time 16h00.

This was one of the many highlights of our trip. From the cabin to the excursions of the boat to the many islands. This UNESCO World Heritage site is a must on your Vietnam trip. Emotion Cruises was wonderful, and entertaining, highly recommended.
