Leading Halong Bay cruise operator Bhaya Group is redefining luxury cruise experiences in Vietnam’s Gulf of Tonkin with lavishly refurbished vessels, exclusive new itinerary options and an ongoing commitment to sustainable travel initiatives as it launches the only two-night, three-day journey in Halong Bay. Guests aboard Bhaya Group’s The Au Co cruise can now appreciate not only travelling through Halong Bay in complete style and with less impact on the environment, but also new on- and off-board excursions not available anywhere else.

Now outfitted to take travellers on three-day, two-night cruises exploring even the most remote regions of Halong Bay, including destinations that were once only able to be reached for one day.

Here, guests can choose their own method of exploring the welcoming village and striking island, whether it be cycling, trekking through the jungle or travelling via electric carts.

“Bhaya Group is known for offering guests experiences that stand out from the rest by combining authentic Vietnamese culture and hospitality with ultimate comfort and luxury,” said Bhaya Group Managing Director, Ms. Ly Thuy Huynh Nhu. “The Au Co cruise’s commitment to quality goes beyond simply refurbished ships however, as we continuously work to make the experiences more unique and more eco-friendly as we welcome a new generation of discerning travellers.”

Along with completely remodeled cabins designed to envelop guests in pure elegance, The Au Co now features enhanced onboard facilities, including a new reception area, spa, upscale restaurant, cocktail bar, library, sundeck and even a private open-air cinema allowing guests to view a film at sea before drifting off to sleep.

Guests can also enjoy dining in the contemporary indoor restaurant or outdoor balcony while soaking up the scenery.
