[Day 1] Hanoi – Halong Archipelago
Meals: lunch and dinner | Accommodation: Signature Mandarin Cruise
Depart from Hanoi at 8.00 for a 3.5 hours drive to Halong City through the Red River Delta.
Upon arrival, get on board of the cruise. Start cruising from Hon Gai pier to the boundaries of Halong bay while lunch with fresh seafood is served (vegetarian and kid’s menus available).
After lunch, just make yourself at ease and relax. We are slowly getting off the classic cruising routes, far from the clichés of a busy tourism spot. Limestone rock formations will parade around us for about 2 hours before our first stop in Cong Do area.
We reach the perfect spot, remote and scenic, where the waters of Halong and Bai Tu Long hit and wave together. Let’s get ready for a wonderful experience on a kayak. Let’s get closer to the water and explore the bay in depth, paddle closer to the rocks and go to one of the many beaches in the Bay.
After one/one and a half hour kayaking, we get back on board to refresh and start the aperitif on the sundeck. The boat cruises to its secluded anchorage area. A fun cooking demonstration by our chef will be presented before dinner that allow you to make a simple Vietnamese dish that you can try before the main dinner that is served either inside or outside depending on weather conditions.
Enjoy a wonderful overnight on board in a cosy air-conditioned cabin with en-suite bathroom facilities.

Meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner | Accommodation: Cruise
The breakfast will be served from 7.15am. But if you like, we invite you to share a cup of tea or coffee from 6.30am and participate then in a Tai Chi session before breakfast.
Around 8.30am, we board a smaller boat. It takes us even farther from the touristy area, to the hidden nooks of the archipelago. Today, we’ll leave all the crowds behind and cruise deeper into Bai Tu Long Bay where we see more of the beautiful and strange rock formations that are only available in this area. As we cruise passing several floating hamlets including Cap La and Cong Dam, we enter the centre of pristine Bai Tu Long Geology Park. A whole day of fun and relaxation with more kayaking, more swimming, more sandy beaches, more floating houses, more local cuisine, definitely a “cruise++”… There are many beaches here for you to discover as well.
We are back to our support boat for a delicious hot lunch at noontime. After lunch, we spend a little more time for kayaking or relaxing. Later, we meet up with a local fishermen family and board their boat and go fishing the trational way. Hopefully we can catch enough fishes for the dinner.
The guide will lead you back to the Halong Signature Mandarin Cruise in the mid-afternoon. Time to refresh and to make yourself cozy on the sundeck. Dinner will be served again either in the dining room or on the deck.
[Day 3] Halong – Hanoi
Meals: brunch | Accommodation: N/A
We will be back at the pier about 11am, and driven to Hanoi with an expected arrival time about 4pm. The day will be short so let’s wake up early to take the maximum of it.
Coffee, tea and cakes will be served from 6.30am. Wake up smoothly while witnessing the silence of beautiful misty bay. A 30-minute Tai Chi session will be organized, energize your body and soul or just allow yourself some time for a sunbath with a cup of coffee.
About 7.45am, we hop on bamboo boats to go visiting a secluded floating village surrounded by the mountains. We trace our way between numerous floating houses and small rowing boats that serve the everyday life as vehicle, itinerant shops, fishing utility, sometimes overnight shelter.
Back on treasure before 9am, we start cruising back to the pier. From 9.30am, a brunch will be served. Take a last glance at the rocks, standing still as the eternal guardians of a kingdom, we are about to reach the pier.
