Halong Bay, “the bay where the dragon descends into the sea'”, is a spectacular seascape in the Gulf of Tonkin. More than 2,000 islands, islets and limestone formations rise from the emerald waters, remarkably shaped by wind and waves.
The best way to discover the natural beauty of the bay is onboard our newly built Halong Emotion, designed to give you the best service you could possibly wish for. Watch the scenery go by with a nice glass of wine and do as much or as little as you feel like on your holiday.
Halong Emotion Cruise combines charm and great comfort to meet the growing demand of travellers looking for luxurious cruises in the bay. Our first boat, launched in July 2008, features 28 air conditioned cabins, with private bathrooms and facilities similar to a boutique style hotel.
