4. Unique and outstanding cruise programmes

Bhaya’s cruise routes focus on less-visited parts of the region, so passengers can enjoy much of the spectacular scenery with barely another boat in sight. The range of cultural activities include the popular Vietnamese cooking demonstration, a traditional tea ceremony, and getting an up-close-and-personal view of local life while visiting a floating fishing village. There is also time for rest and relaxation, with a stop at a beautiful secluded beach that is exclusive to Bhaya guests.


Bhaya Cruises pride themselves in offering the highest standards in customer service excellence and sustainable tourism in overnight Halong Bay cruises. Whatever the party size or travel type, the cruise line features four unique concepts that are sure to provide an experience of a lifetime.


1. The largest and most experienced local cruise operator

Launched in 2007, Bhaya Cruises have been providing luxury overnight cruises in Halong Bay and its surrounding areas, longer than any other operator and with a wider range of boats. Through a programme of annual renovations as well as a highly experienced technical team on board and on land, the company is dedicated to ensuring the safety of both passengers and staff.


2. Vietnamese hospitality at its finest

With carefully trained English-speaking staff, the service standards on board Bhaya Cruises are second to none. The caring attitude of the crew members and high quality of onboard accommodations, cuisine and facilities ensure passengers are fully satisfied throughout their Bhaya experience.


3. Variety and diversity

Bhaya Cruises’ unrivalled fleet of 17 vessels comprises four exclusive cruise lines of varying sizes and concepts. Choose from the 32 cabin ‘Au Co’, which specialises in continuous two night cruising through Halong and Lan Ha Bays, the boutique-sized, family friendly ‘Bhaya Premium’ or the even smaller ‘Bhaya Legend’ boats which are used exclusively for private cruising. Whatever their taste, all travel types can experience Bhaya.

Why choose Bhaya Cruises?


5. Responsible cruising and environmental sustainability

Bhaya Cruises has long been recognised for its dedication to ensuring that local communities benefit from tourism while still preserving their unique culture. As part of its commitment to socially responsible travel, Bhaya supports an isolated village on Cat Ba Island by providing income-generating opportunities for villagers to grow organic produce on its community farm, which the company buys back for use in its boats’ kitchens. Some of Bhaya’s other environmental projects include providing its guests with reusable and refillable water bottles, as well as raising funds for protecting the white-headed langur, one of the rarest species of monkey in Asia.
