Tuan Chau Marina - Cat Ba Island & Viet Hai Village - Lan Ha Bay Mooring
Your extraordinary Halong Bay cruise tour package begins when you gather at the Heritage Line's welcome lounge in Tuan Chau Marina. From there, you'll embark on a brief speedboat transfer to your luxurious floating home, kicking off your exploration of the enchanting Lan Ha Bay and Cat Ba Island.
The first highlight of your luxury cruise deals is a sumptuous lunch served in the ship's well-lit dining room, which provides nearly 360-degree views of the stunning scenery. The open kitchen on Heritage Line Ylang allows you to witness the culinary artistry of the chef and the team, making your dining experience truly unique!

After reaching the shore of a small lagoon on Cat Ba Island, you'll embark on bicycles (e-cart transfers are also available) for a leisurely ride along small paved roads to the Viet Hai village.
This remote community has remained relatively unchanged since its ancestors settled here centuries ago. Surrounded by lush forests and mountains within Cat Ba National Park, the locals live in isolation from the island's other communities, with sea access as their sole connection. The villagers are largely self-sufficient, cultivating vegetables and fruits in nearby fields, growing rice in the valley, and fishing in the bay. This is an authentic and unique opportunity to meet local residents and immerse yourself in their daily lives.
You'll get a glimpse of local households, see farming equipment from past and present, and sample locally made "wine" in various flavors, all while surrounded by the natural beauty and tranquility of this secluded valley nestled among towering mountains.
As you return to the ship, you'll have the chance to participate in an interactive cooking class with the chef in the dining room. Discover the secrets of local ingredients and the preparation of classic Vietnamese dishes, and you're encouraged to lend a hand. As the sun sets, you'll arrive at a serene anchorage spot for the night. Relax and reflect on the day's adventures as night falls gently over the bay. After a delightful dinner, you can unwind at the bar with a digestif or enjoy a movie in the cinema set up in the dining room. Alternatively, join the crew for some fun squid fishing before retiring to your room!
