Explore the amazing natural wonder of Halong Bay on a two day cruise through the jade green waters of this UNESCO World Heritage site. There is no doubt that the best way to see its primitive beauty is from the air on Hai Au Aviation’s seaplane with both way experience of taking off and landing on water. Even better is to see it all close up as you land on water for an overnight boat stay on the Emeraude metal cruise, visit fishing villages and kayak past jungle-clad karsts towering up out of the water. Travel by tender to see caves, go fishing or even a spot of swimming.
