Halong Bay Cocktail Cruise (Promo Video)


Thanks to Ocean Tours, the company that organizes this cocktail cruise through Halong Bay and Lanha Bay, I got to visit this amazing oceanic wonderland, trek through the jungle up to a breathtaking viewpoint on Cat Ba island, and stay on a PRIVATE island!

If you plan to visit Halong Bay, I suggest you book your trip through Ocean Tours. It was an incredible experience and they take care of EVERYTHING (food, transportation, accommodation, guides, and activities). Plus, they have a couple of options available to fit your budget – 2day/1night trip or 3day/2night trip.

This voyage is called the Thousand Island Voyage because of the vast number of these massive breathtaking karsts jutting out from the bay.
