Itineraries

Day 1: Hanoi – Halong

8:00: Optional Pick up at your hotel in Hanoi center, transfer to Halong Bay.

12:00: The boat sets sail to cruise into the Bay. Find yourself getting acquainted with the facilities onboard. A delectable buffet lunch with a feast of choices is served in the restaurant. Savour your first hours in Halong Bay on the sun deck by simply let your eyes wander around the scenery.

We arrive at the area of Cua Van floating fishing village. From here we start to explore a cave, named Tien Ong, and the floating fishing village. Tien Ong is the most recently explored cave. It shows evidences of human civilization dating back to 10,000 – 8,000 BC. The cave is just 5 meters above sea level, 50 meters deep and covers 1000 square meters. Our guide takes you on a loop though the cave and explains about the historical findings and the cave’s particularities.
The voyage continues to the fishing village. With a small bamboo boat rowed by the local people we move around in the calm sea of this secluded area and gain an insight into the village life.
After returning to the boat we sail to the overnight mooring area Luom Bo. During this time Halong Bay reveals its most magnificent beauty - we call it the “blue hour”. Rewind on the sun deck with a drink of your choice and let the moment sink in. During the sailing time our Chef demonstrates as well the preparation of particular Vietnamese dishes. Feel free to join and practice by yourself.
Dinner is served in the restaurant either à la carte or buffet style. Afterwards the night is yours to kick-back and abundantly enjoy these unique moment amidst a surreal landscape. A presentation in our dining area with more interesting facts and insights on Halong Bay is also offered after dinner. We wish you a good night in Halong Bay where once upon a time Dragons played with sparkling jewels.

Meals: L, D

Accommodation: Jasmine Cruise

Day 2: Halong Cruise

Wake up at dawn to the lapping of the wave and the smell of freshly brewed coffee which is available with pastries in the dining room. Join the Tai Chi morning class on the sun deck which is a truly one-time experience. By following the moves of our instructor you merge with the surrounding scenery.
By the tender boat we transfer to our day boat named “Sunset”. It is a smaller, cozy vessel via which we discover the further hidden charms of Halong Bay. Breakfast is served as Sunset sails for the Surprise Cave, in Vietnamese “Sung Sot”. Sung Sot is the biggest cave in Halong Bay at over 10,000 square meters. It is a magnificent site with the most beautiful stalagmites and stalactites. The further you go inside the bigger it gets. We explore this natural sensation for about 60 minutes.
Once back on the Sunset take some time to relax. Lean back on your sunbed while Sunset smoothly sails further into the Bay. Here you have the chance to have another close encounter with the fairylike Halong Bay. Via kayak you can float through this bizarre water landscape. The cliffs stretch vertically out of the water and you feel a sense of freedom meandering through this green medley of water and tree-topped islets. Back on board lunch is served in the restaurant.
Back on board lunch is served in the restaurant. Sunset continues the journey to a floating pearl farm. Halong Bay is also a place where pearls are cultivated. In a small factory we learn how pearls are harvested and processed. After the visit we leisurely sail back to the mother ship. Back “home” you have time for spa or sunbathing while we sail to the overnight night spot.
The dinner is served in the restaurant around seven o’clock. Before you retire to your cabin you might like to have some fun with squid fishing together with our crew or simply lean back on one of the loungers and listen to serenity of Halong Bay.

Meals: B, L, D

Accommodation: Jasmine Cruise

Day 3: Halong Bay – Hanoi

For early risers (~6.30 o’clock) tea, coffee and pastries are available at the restaurant area. A Tai Chi class is offered on the sundeck again to ease mind and muscles.
The boat continues to sail to Titop Island. We set over by tender to this little landmass in the bay. Prepare yourself for a refreshing morning swim on a sandy beach beneath high rock formations. If you prefer to be more active climb up to the hill top of Titop Island from where you have stunning views over Halong Bay (it is 400 stone steps up which takes about 20 minutes to the top, minimal fitness and proper footwear is required). There is also a viewing platform about half-way up with great panoramic views.
Back on board (around 8:45 o’clock) you may like to shower and freshen up. Now it is time to enjoy the last sailing time back to the harbor. A full breakfast is served in the dining room. Relax on the sun deck or dine in the restaurant while savoring the last cruise moments of this iconic site before arriving back on shore at around 11:00am. The crew will bid you farewell and you disembark with our tender boat to Tuan Chau Marina.

15:30: Arrive Hanoi, end of services.

This review is heavily influenced by the fact that we were lucky with the weather. We did the two night cruise and I'm pleased that we did. I think the one nighter would have been a bit rushed. We had the most basic room and it was a lot better than I had expected. Small, yes, but not impossible. The bathroom was perfectly adequate and everything worked. I hadn't appreciated how closely timetabled the whole event would be. It worked out for us, but mainly because we shunned the kayaking and stayed on deck, just sitting and lapping up the view and the sun. That window of relaxation in a stunning setting was magical and I think it's one of those things I will always remember. Yes, Halong Bay is busy. Yes, there are loads and loads of other boats. However, as a tourist, I feel that I;m part of the problem and can't really complain about it. The jasmine crew did seem to be better than most, however, at getting you away from the herd at times. Food was very good. There was a BBQ on deck on the first night. On the second night we were offered (as are all two nighters) a special menu. We declined and had the BBQ again - perfect shrimp, steak and pork and lots and lots of interesting salads. It's no wonder that we left heavier than we arrived! The view from the top of Titop Island on the final morning was great - worth the climb. So, for us, this was a really special couple of days and I recommend it.

We had a wonderful 3 day 2 night cruise on the Jasmine Junk and nearly everything about the whole experience was first class. We had a room on the2nd floor with a balcony and although slightly tired it was very clean and had a perfectly adequate bed, toilet and shower. The boat itself is again slightly run down but you could argue that this adds to the appeal of the experience. The staff are wonderful and very professional. (I received a surprise Birthday cake on my first evening), this was totally unexpected as it was not actually my birthday during the cruise, the cake as well as all the food was exceptional and put some top class restaurants to shame. The tours were well organised and the boat you travel on during the 2nd day of the cruise ( the Sunrise) is also superb with excellent standards of food and service. Halong Bay itself if a magical place to visit and we feel it is a must do tour while in Vietnam. The cruise does occasionally repeat its route if you have booked the 2 night stay but it is still wonderful. We would definitely recommend this tour. Regards, Jonesie13
