Day 1: Hanoi – Halong Bay (L,D)
Pick up at 08:00 at your hotel in Hanoi and drive through scenic countryside areas to Halong bay. We will be arriving in the Halong City at around 12:00: Enjoy a warm welcome aboard the Halong Jasmine, 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 Jasmine’s golden sails arcing elegantly against the skyline before splashing down for a swim, or recline on Jasmine’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 board the ship, watch the shimmering sun slip down the sky as you sip expertly-blended cocktails as an aperitif for Jasmine’s extravagant evening meal.
Day 2: Halong Bay (B,L,D)
After breakfast, transfer with a small private crew to our day-trip boat to cruise to the bay’s most untouched areas. Enjoy swimming in deliciously cool, emerald-green water, basking on quiet beaches, and exploring tunnels and caves cut into the rock. Soak up the vibrant atmosphere as we cruise around fishing villages, or take in things at your own pace in a kayak. Lunch will be served on board by your private chef before you return to the Jasmine Cruise for the night.
Day 3: Halong Bay – Hanoi (B,L)
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 the boat for a final glimpse of the Halong Bay while cruising back to the dock.
