Day 1: Hanoi – Halong Bay (-/L/D)
08:00AM meet our driver at the lobby of your hotel. Enjoy 03h30 drive to Halong Bay, listed as UNESCO's World Heritage Site.
Enjoy a warm welcome aboard Halong Violet Cruise, and sit back and drink in the spectacular vista during our passage into this magical bay. Once lunch has been served and taste buds and tummies thoroughly satisfied, we weigh anchor near a secluded beach. Take a short trek to a nearby summit to enjoy the panoramic view of the bay with Violet cruise’s golden sails arcing elegantly against the skyline before splashing down for a swim, or recline on Violet’s wicker sun loungers on our expansive wooden sundeck.
Later that afternoon, we visit a local fishing village where you have the opportunity to interact with some of the more colorful locals who have lived and fished in the bay for almost three generations. At sunset, slip into a kayak or board a bamboo row boat to explore water tunnels and discover pristine coral reef in a scenic lagoon setting. Once back on Violet Cruise, watch the shimmering sun slip down the sky as you sip expertly-blended cocktails as an aperitif for Violet’s extravagant evening meal.
Tonight, we enjoy the dinner and overnight on Violet Cruise.
Day 2: Halong Bay – Hanoi (B/-/-)
Greet the day with a morning Tai Chi exercise with an opportunity to view the sunrise over the bay. After breakfast, visit beautiful limestone grotto, then back to Violet Cruise for a final glimpse of the Halong Bay while cruising back to Violet Cruise dock.
