The Red Dragon hatched from the legendary Chinese vessel of the same name, carrier of goods from the North Sea to Singapore. Despite its grandeur the Red Dragon has excellent maneuverability, able to wind through the natural alleyways and skinny valleys between the islets. Upon boarding the Red Dragon you are instantly surrounded by traditional handmade artisan woodwork. With a capacity of merely 10 people, the Red Dragon is fit for those who desire a cosy, personal cruise between a small group.

Departure End date :

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. At 12:00 you will embark at Hon Gai international harbour. Check in, quench your thirst with the complimentary welcome drink and after the cruise briefing the anchor is weighed and your trip begins. Lunch, a buffet offering a variety of Vietnamese and International dishes, is a feast for the senses. Meanwhile the cruise continues its leisurely pace across the glittering jewelled belt of Bai Tu Long bay, weaving through limestone islets half shrouded in endemic greenery. At 15 :00 you have the opportunity to swim in the crystal waters, and by 15 :40 when you’ve dried off the cruise will have stopped at the secluded Thien Canh Son Cave where you will explore caverns thousands of years old. Spend the rest of the afternoon soaking up the sunlight on the pristine white sands of Hon Co Island or try kayaking for an up close experience of the karsts, or enjoy a refreshing swim in the surrounding area. At 18:00 return to the boat and at 19:00 enjoy a culinary tapestry of international and Vietnamese flavors at the buffet dinner served in the dining room. The rest of the evening is spent at your leisure.

Second day

Appreciate the gentle splendor of a Halong Bay sunrise before a light breakfast is served in the dining area. Visit the fishing village of Vung Vieng in a traditional bamboo boat, marvel at the simple ingenuity of the floating constructs as you are rowed through the Venice of Halong bay. The next hour before lunch is to be spent at your leisure, whether you prefer to swim in the emerald waters or lounge on the sundeck. At 10:00 savour an a la carte brunch on the way back to the mainland. Disembark at 11:45 and await your transfer back to Hanoi.
