As the sun rises slowly over the thousands of karst islands that dot Halong Bay, the sails of the Ginger glow brightly. The Ginger was built to resemble a traditional wooden junk, the Ginger features wood-paneled lounges, shimmering silks and Indochine-style furnishings. Simple yet elegant, the cabins provide large windows – perfect for viewing the bay’s ever- magical scenery. With just ten luxurious cabins, the Ginger offers an intimate means of exploring Halong Bay. Guests can rise before dawn and take a tai chi class on the sundeck; join the friendly kitchen staff in a Vietnamese cooking class; and swap stories on plush sofas in the boat’s cozy bar. Surrounded by the legendary islands of Halong Bay, you will feel relaxed, recharged and inspired after you join Ginger on an incredible journey.

Day 1: Hanoi – Halong (Meals: L,D)
Welcome aboard and sail through the Ha Long Bay. Allow your eyes to swim through the azure waters of this magical place, where thousands of sculpted limestone and islands rise from the water like gigantic teeth of dragons. Pass through picturesque areas like the Mat Quy and Am islets. A delectable buffet lunch is served shortly upon boarding and you find yourself getting acquainted with the facilities of the boat. The boat starts to cruise into the Bay and within the first hour you can enjoy this World Heritage Site.

A first visit will take our guests by tender to the Tien Ong Cave. The Cave is huge - about 2.000 sqm –and is peppered with beautiful stalactites and stalagmites, formed out of ancient limestone karsts about 700,000 years ago. The cave is four meters above sea level. This visit will last approximately 20 minutes (we strongly recommend that you do not wear high heel shoes for this excursion). The voyage continues with the arrival at the Cua Van Fishing Village, the biggest and oldest fishing village in Halong Bay via a pleasant boat ride (a maximum of four persons per boat). You will pass by this ancient village which comprises floating houses and floating schools - simply irresistible. After returning to the boat in the late afternoon guests can sharpen their culinary skills at our cooking class performance conducted by our energetic chef. Surely you can give him a helping hand any time and try your skills in preparing special Vietnamese dishes. The boat cruises slowly with the evening sun to its mooring points. If not now when then it is time to enjoy a massage or at least to quaff a drink – in the miraculous descending sun - on our terrace deck.

At approximately 19.00h guests can attend a presentation in the restaurant area about the Halong Bay before dinner is served. The night is yours - kick back on a comfy pillowed bench and inhale the surreal beauty whilst sipping a glass of wine.

Not many places in the world offer those special feelings. The mooring place is a fantastic overnight spot with glittering lights from the other boats and a calm sea, perfect for your first dream in the middle of the Bay where once Dragons played amid sparkling jewels
Day 2: Halong – Hanoi (Meals: Brunch)
For early risers complimentary tea, coffee and pastries are served in the restaurant followed by - if you so desire - a Tai Chi Class on the terrace deck (7.00 AM), A great morning activity to feel one with this natural wonder. Then it is time for an early morning bath - in the Bay. By tender boat we bring the guests to a natural white sandy stretch of a beach with crystal clear water. Sporty ones can climb up to a hill top to have a last view from above over the Ha Long Bay before we return to the boat and cruise slowly back to Ha Long City, passing picturesque areas like the Ti Top Island, the Tam Cung Cave and Poem Mountain.

During our trundle, a buffet brunch is served before we arrive at the shore at around 11.00h. The crew will bid you farewell and you disembark with our tender boat to the Tuan Chau Pier

Car is waiting for you there and transfers you back to Hanoi.
