Mystical Halong Bay Aboard The Au Co

Launched in 2012, The Au Co is an excellent new vessel consisting of just 32 comfortable cabins with en-suite bathrooms and panoramic balconies.  Facilities include indoor and outdoor spa and a Jacuzzi on deck, as well as a restaurant using the 5 elements of wood, fire, earth, metal and water. With its larger engines and the fact that it offers a minimum of 2 night cruises The Au Co can quickly escape the madding crowd and take you deep into the heart of Halong Bay with its iconic limestone karsts.  Bai Tu Long Bay, Lan Ha Bay and Cat Ba Island are not accessible for boats doing shorter cruises and The Au Co finds uncrowded pristine beaches and hidden coves that passengers can explore at their own pace and feel the majesty of the three bays in the Gulf of Tonkin.

Pre & Post Cruise Itineraries

There is so much to see and do in Vietnam and we can arrange a tailor-made pre and post cruise itinerary to help you see the highlights of this beautiful country steeped in history and culture with its stunning scenery and incredible people who have survived the horrors of war. 

Prior to your cruise, visit the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum and enjoy a cyclo tour of the Old Quarter in Hanoi. 

After the cruise fly to the UNESCO World Heritage town of Hue and take a local boat down the Perfume River to the Thien Mu Pagoda.  Drive through the mountains to Hoi An and relax on the beach at the stunning Nam Hai before heading to south central Vietnam to experience the snorkelling and diving around the islands of Nha Trang. 

Finish in Ho Chi Minh City where you can explore the Cu Chi Tunnels used as guerrilla hideouts during the war, visit the War Remnants Museum, experience the otherwise inaccessible parts of the city riding pillion on a vespa at night   with your experienced driver guide and enrich your cultural side with a visit to Reunification Palace, Notre Dame Cathedral  and  the Central Post Office to name a few, as well as the numerous and colourful local markets.  


Our Vietnam expert would be delighted to put a tailor-made itinerary together for you to suit the length of time you can spare and to ensure you get the most out of Vietnam before you leave. Contact Melissa on +44 (0)1242 787800.
