Halong Bay is one of Vietnam’s most stunning attractions – there is no way to describe Halong Bay other than as purely breathtaking. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site and natural wonder of the world, the bay features thousands of limestone islands and cliffs emerging from the turquoise sea.
Halong Bay is understandably popular, but if you want to come here alone without other tourists, be sure to book our private charter boat to sail where you want, cruising on your own itinerary deep into the bay, exploring the caves and grottoes, heading over to Bai Tu Long Bay and Lan Ha Bay, trekking in Cat Ba National Park, rock climbing, kayaking, and watching some of the most amazing sunsets that you’ve ever set eyes on.
Bai Tu Long Bay
Adjacent, smaller and quieter, for many its untouched beauty surpasses that of Halong Bay. Bai Tu Long means ‘the place where the dragon children descended’.
Rich in biodiversity, with a pristine environment and blessed with a marvelous landscape, the bay is dominated by thousands of limestone karsts and islets which rise out of the waters of the bay. It is dotted with floating villages, unspoiled beaches, caves and grottoes and tiny coves where you can hide to unwind and be a Robinson Crusoe for the day.
Most of the islands are uninhabited and are home to delightful flora and fauna and empty, white-sand beaches from which you can go swimming and snorkeling. Cong Do, Tra San, Vung Dang, and Cong Dam are just a few of the places where you can see the most beautiful scenery, kayak through tranquil lagoons and discover the coastal marine ecosystem. Private charter cruises take you deep into Bai Tu Long Bay where mother nature is at her best.
Lan Ha Bay
Lan Ha Bay is situated in the east of Cat Ba Island (Hai Phong City), south of Halong Bay, and has around 400 karst limestone islands surrounded by evergreen charm and vegetation. Geographically and aesthetically, there is no difference between Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay.
On one hand, Halong Bay is recognized as one of the New Seven Wonders in the world; therefore, it has been opening the door for tourist visitations and tourism development from the very beginning. On the other hand, Lan Ha Bay has kept its pristine beauty, even in the most unique and attractive spots. Thereby, tourists truly enjoy the beautiful scenery and immerse themselves in Lan Ha Bay.
Nha Trang Bay
Nha Trang Bay is a premier beach resort with a long sandy beach and many bars, restaurants, and dive shops along Tran Phu Boulevard, with many offshore islands ideal for snorkeling and diving; Van Phong has a long white-sand beach, lagoons, and a deep seaport for industry; and Cam Ranh is an off-limits naval base.
For many years Nha Trang has been a popular holiday destination for both Vietnamese and international travelers, with its 7km of white-sand beach overlooking the bay, perfect for swimming in its quiet, calm waters and taking day trips out to the islands. Now travelers have the opportunity to enjoy an overnight cruise in the bay on a luxurious Emperor Cruises ship.
Phu Quoc Island
Phu Quoc is famous for tourists from all over the country and internationally. This is not only because Phu Quoc is a beautiful island, but it also contains many mysteries waiting for travelers to discover, relax, enjoy, and immerse themselves in nature.
In addition to the strong development of the confirmed resort tourism, Phu Quoc is also an ideal destination for activities to explore nature, exotic seas and islands that can distract visitors. Come to this beautiful island city and cruise artfully to touch the wildness and enjoy every single moment on our Emperor Cruises Phu Quoc.
Sailing the Coast of Vietnam
The marine tourism sector, which is a top priority of the country’s sea economy Master Plan 2030-45, has been struggling to attract investment in cruise harbours and coastal infrastructure to lure globally branded cruise fleets connected with worldwide destinations. Cruise services are one of the key products in building marine tourism as a core part of the ‘blue sea economy’ plan.
The coast of Vietnam is ranked the 33rd in the world. This nation ranks in the top 12 countries for the most beautiful bays in the world including Halong, Lan Ha, Lang Co and Nha Trang. Although Vietnam has 3,260 km of coastline, 125 world- class beautiful beaches, 3000 islands, and 28 coastal cities, it still does not have a cruise ship fleet. Vietnam must have cruise ships along the coast and to carry passengers from Vietnam to other countries.
Making a 67.3 per cent share of the country’s total tourism revenue, a top favourite ocean destination among 156 beach nations, cruise tourism in Vietnam has not been promoted properly so far. The number of cruise tourists accounts for only 2-3% of the total number of international visitors to Vietnam. Lux Group’s Founder and CEO Pham Ha emphasized that it is necessary to attract investors to invest in cruise ships and yachts with Vietnamese nationality that run along the coast. Be the first to cruise along Vietnamese coast in 2025!
What Our Clients Say
Reviews of customers who have toured and used Lux Cruises's services
“An Experience To Remember”
Ha Long Bay an idyllic seaside places to watch sunrise, sunset. Then wait a while longer… because it’s the blue hour, that twilight time between dusk and darkness, when we believe Ha Long Bay is at its most beautiful.
“What an authentic experience!”
Thank you Lux Cruises for organizing wonderful experiences for us for 6 days at Amanoi Resort, Emperor Cruises Nha Trang and Six Senses Ninh Van Bay. We loved every second and every ecstatic minute in this island paradise.
“Best cruise in HaLong Bay”
Excellent cruise with good food, good service and very friendly staff. The design of the boat and the suites are outstanding! We will book again!
Amazing facilities in and out as well. Especially, friendly staff who share so many interesting stories about this place, people and their lives. The food is fine. The chef is good at vietnamese cuisine.
“Great boutique cruise in Lan Ha Bay“
Outstanding 5* boutique cruise in Lan Ha Bay, my stay at Heritage Cruises Bình Chuẩn was the best in Lan Ha Bay I have had so far. The cruise is so great, artistic, clean and the staff are wonderful. The attention to detail is what I noticed. I will stay here again with a 3 days 2 nights itinerary next time.
We had a fantastic experience with Heritage Cruise. Our cabin was pretty large and well decorated. We could experience the spectacular scenery from the cabin, yet enjoying it with a full view on the deck would be the best. The food was great and diverse. All have made the trip so memorable.
