HALONG GINGER

Departure: Daily from Hanoi
Boarding at: Halong Bay
Cruise Rate: Quoted in USD/double Cabin for 2 persons
This is one of the best of Luxury Halong Cruises collection. Discover the splendors of Halong Bay aboard the Halong Ginger, a wooden junk that combines classic beauty with modern comfort. Measuring 38 meters (125 feet) in length, this newly built, custom-designed yacht features three decks that house an elegant restaurant, two bars, a small library, and a massage room plus ten luxurious sleeping cabins. With so much space, passengers can truly unwind and enjoy the bay's magnificent scenery. While all those who visit Halong Bay are charmed by the archipelago's beauty, few visitors are aware that the three-thousand islands that dot this bay are home to many rare plants, including species found nowhere else in the world. We chose our boat's name "Halong Ginger" because, like the plant it was named after, our junk is perfectly suited to this environment. With its golden sails, polished woodwork and refined, Asian décor, the Halong Ginger offers an unforgettable ambiance of relaxed elegance. Join us, and see Halong Bay in style.
