Brand new cruise to Lan Ha Bay

HANOI, 26 June 2018: Cruise operator Indochina Sails will introduce a new ship, this December, sailing from Hai Phong to Lan Ha Bay region.

Joining this new cruise is more convenient for guests as the home-port is closer to Hanoi for guests who face time constraints.

Lan Ha Bay is one of three bays served by cruise boats. Ha Long Bay is the most famous with more than 100 cruise operators. It has close to 2,000 islets. Boats are based at Bai Chay harbour

Bai Tu Long Bay is 30 km east of Ha Long, quieter and has around 1,600 limestone islets. Cruise boats are based at Hon Gai harbour.

The smallest of the three bays, Lan Ha Bay, is 10 km south of Cat Ba Island with 300 islets and limestone karst. Recommended for adventure travellers interested in kayaking, rock climbing and trekking

Indonchina Sails has more than 20 years experience offering cruises on Ha Long Bay.

The new cruise boat will have 36 cabins and offer guests a luxury travel experience for the duration of the cruise that highlights Lan Ha Bay.

Famed for its 400 tropical islets with secluded sandy beaches the UNESCO World Heritage bay has retained its pristine environment by avoiding substantial tourist attention.

So far it has been protected from over crowding and environmental issues that blight the bigger Ha Long Bay.

Indochina Sails’ Lan Ha two-day, one-night cruise package comes with on-board meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) served at the boat’s second deck restaurant, which also has a lounge area with a vantage point to admire the bay.

Cruise activities include food carving, cooking classes, sunrise Tai Chi, spa service, gym and a heated on-board swimming pool.

Shore activities highlight trips to secluded sandy coves and visits to fishing communities living on floating villages.

The ship has been designed in traditional Indochina Colonial style with token sails. Spacious private cabin have en-suite bathrooms and balconies.

Indochina Sails is a brand name of Huong Hai Group and one of the first companies to specialise in cruises on Ha long Bay with more than 15 years of experience.
