Inspired by the legend of Vietnamese ancestry, The Au Co offers you a unique Halong Bay cruise. On the three day two night voyage, you will come to see the unrivalled beauty and wonder that is Halong Bay and experience the rich culture of the indigenous people, whose history in the area dates back thousands of years. It is this that sets The Au Co Luxury Cruise apart from other cruises, and promises to be an experience of a lifetime
For every cruise, The Au Co pledges the following:
Among the biggest cruises in the bay, The Au Co Luxury Cruise offers spacious cabins with modern facilities. Entertainment and well-being services are available to make sure that we meet your every need.
Our three day two night cruise is the first of its kind to take you to the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Halong Bay, and beyond. Indeed, you will cruise further into the Gulf of Tonkin’s adjacent Bays of Lan Ha and Bai Tu Long which still remain relatively untouched by commercial tourism. Away from the more popular and visited areas, Lan Ha and Bai Tu Long Bay give you the chance to visit secluded beaches, swim in private lagoons or to see wildlife that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
On board The Au Co, you may notice the reflection of traditional and more rudimentary culture throughout the journey. The interior design of the cabins and public areas consists of traditional Vietnamese detailing which is combined harmoniously with French motifs. The cuisine served on board is inspired by traditional local culture based around the Five Elements. On various excursions, you will get to experience the day to day life of a local fisherman who was born and raised in the beautiful Halong Bay, and talk with them as you discover the Bay by their traditional modes of transport.
Halong Bay, and its ancient culture, are truly unique and are of great cultural and historical significance in Vietnam. Bearing this in mind, The Au Co Luxury Cruise team cooperates with environmental protection organisations to launch initiatives for both the cleaning and preservation of Halong Bay. While our activities are aimed at providing guests with an authentic Halong experience, at the same time, we want to share the benefits with the local communities. Our programs are strongly supported by local people, tourists and the relevant local authorities.
