Sail to Bai Tu Long Bay, passing through extraordinarily shaped islands with other such evocative names as Poem Mountain, Teapot Islet and Goat’s Head Islet. Swim in the pristine water here before heading to the tranquility of Cong Do and the hidden wonder of Thay Cave.
Embark on your private junk, a traditional wooden boat that has been luxuriously fitted with traditional Chinese rosewood furniture and design elements in each of the two bedrooms. Cruise through the islands and explore their quirks and characteristics – some of the islands are hollow, hiding caves and grottoes, and support floating villages of fishermen, who ply the shallow waters. Many of the islands have names reflecting their unusual shapes, such as Voi (elephant), Ga Choi (fighting cock), and Mai Nha (roof).
Enjoy swimming and kayaking around Cong Dam, a picturesque area with hidden lagoons and sleepy fishing villages ensconced by towering karst cliffs, as well as the white-sand beach of Doi Non Island. Pass through thousands of islands and islets on the cruise to Tra San Beach for more sunbathing, swimming and kayaking.
Take a rowboat to visit the Vung Vieng fishing village, where you can interact with the local fishermen and see them at work.
