What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Lan Ha Bay, Cat Ba Vietnam

07.00 – 07.30 - Collection from the hotel

The driver of the luxury shuttle bus will arrive to your hotel in Hanoi’s Old Quarter before helping to load your luggage into the vehicle. Take the scenic drive across the Red River Delta after this, where one of Vietnam’s proudest and most productive agricultural regions stretches to the coast.

09.45 am - 10.00 am - Welcome to the JadeSails

We will duly board the cruise and enjoy a welcome drink while listening to the crew’s briefing. After this, you are free to explore the ship and check out the view as we begin sailing towards the limestone islands ahead of us.

11.00 – Lunch

A delicious lunch is served in the dining room of the cruise, during which there will be a live musical performance of traditional Vietnamese music and the constant scrolling of limestone mountains in the background.

13.30 - Visiting the Dark & Bright Caves

First, we cruise over to the Dark & Bright Caves, where we will board a bamboo boat rowed by a local resident. We will head through the Bright Cave, which is a small tunnel of water opening up magnificently onto an enclosed lake. Here, you will have time to skim the surface of this silent lagoon encircled by soaring limestone walls and dotted with luxuriant trees.

15.00 – Swimming and Kayaking in Tung Gau

There are over 400 islands dotted around the area of Tung Gau, making it the perfect place for us to revel in the scenery as we kayak and swim in these quiet, emerald waters. A quick lesson from the tour guide will set you up for your kayaking excursion, which is guaranteed to be one of the more memorable highlights of your time with the cruise.

16.00 - Cooking Class

As we return to the Jade Sails, our chef will emerge from the kitchen and show us how to create Vietnamese spring rolls to replicate at home. Have a go yourself afterwards as the most spectacular backdrop drifts by.

16.30 – Sunset Party

Back aboard the sundeck of the Jade Sails, we will be able to enjoy a small party during sunset. This is a great chance to share stories with new friends you have met throughout the day and savour the beauty of Lan Ha Bay’s jaw-dropping sunset.

Happy hour will be on at the bar and the spa will be taking bookings from this point onwards.

17.30 – Arrive at Tuan Chau Harbor

The JadeSails would like to sincerely thank you for joining us on this beautiful trip around Lan Ha Bay. We hope you enjoyed yourselves and we would love to see you back in Vietnam at some point in the future.
