Do not hesitage to contact us. We are an expert team and we are happy to talk to you.
More than 20 – year experience in organizing tours to Halong Bay but still in the crowd of tourists and 500 boats, we realize that we need to make something new for you with this destination. It is UniCharm Cruise!
Instead of spending too much time on the old road to Quang Ninh province, you will shortly get to Hai Phong city and cross the strait to Cat Hai Island by a newly launched bridge. We will introduce you an unique area of Halong Bay from its back where you rarely see any tourist boat. We especially customize this route for you to explore the hidden area of Cat Ba Island and Lan Ha Bay – the additional parts of the Wonder of Halong Bay and the World Biosphere reserved area.
By this tour itinerary, we believe that we will satisfy customers who dislike crowded tourist attractions and those who have passion for discovering.
