  • The highlight of the trip is taking people to less touristy areas and cruise more to see the best parts of Ha Long - Lan Ha bay.
  • The place where we anchor is also very peaceful; no other boats close nearby; not like Ha Long bay- hundreds of boats parking at the same place.
  • The trips can be flexibly changed due to customer’s demands, physical conditions and the tide levels (weather as well).
