Probably the most famous site in Vietnam is the magnificent limestone karst scenery of Halong Bay. The best way to see and appreciate this astoundingly beautiful natural site is by taking an overnight cruise. Hundred's of boats ply the route but we only recommend a handful, chosen for standout features such as routes that veer away from the crowds or excellent onboard facilities.
The boats we have chosen offer superb facilities, excellent and knowledgeable guides and a personal service. They are also fully safety regulation and maintained to international standards. We won’t use a boat that has not passed stringent safety tests.
It’s also possible to take an overnight river cruise in the Mekong Delta region of southern Vietnam such as the Bassac Cruise. This is a great way to get off the beaten track and explore a side of Vietnam that few tourists get to see.
Additionally, it is possible to cruise right up the Mekong River from Saigon to Siem Reap and the Angkor Temple complex in Cambodia (or vice versa). Talk to our consultants who will be happy to advise on the cruise that suit you best.
