The second of the “Three Sisters” operated by Heritage Line in Halong Bay is the gracious middle-child, Jasmine. Visitors looking for both comfort and adventure in Halong Bay will appreciate the Jasmine’s friendly crew and understated elegance.

With 23 cabins, the Jasmine is built in the style of a traditional Vietnamese junk, with three tawny sails and dark wood-cladding.

Jasmine’s interiors, like the exterior, are covered in polished wood, lending the Jasmine the stately air of an Indochina-era cruising boat. Guests can convene in the formal dining room, enjoy casual barbecues on the terrace and marvel at the bay’s moonlit beauty on the Jasmine’s wide Sundeck. After days spent learning Tai Chi, kayaking, and visiting local fishing villages, visitors can enjoy various traditional massage treatments. Heritage Line prides itself on exceptional service and the Jasmine is no exception. The Jasmine’s experienced crew does their utmost to showcase the bay’s indescribable wonders.

Highlights:

  • Observe the daily life in Cua Van fishing village, one of few traditional floating villages of Vietnam to enrich your travel experiences and knowledge
  • Kayaking to get closer and visit wonderful caves in Halong Bay
  • Practice morning Tai Chi exercise and enjoy the beautiful sunrise over the bay

16.00 Arrive at the Cua Van floating fishing village area. Upon arrival we will transfer by tender to Tien Ong cave. There are many caves in Halong Bay, but Tien Ong is the most recently explored and opened for public access. In 2007 a team of Vietnamese archaeologists conducted extensive research which led to the discovery of human bones and artifacts dating to 10,000 – 8,000 BC. The cave has a wide, but short entrance which is said to resemble the shape of a frog’s mouth. The cave is 5 meters above sea level and is 50 meters deep and covers 1000 square meters, almost evenly split into two chambers. We will tour the cave for about 15 minutes.

From the cave we will re-board the tender and make the short trip to the village. There are two options for exploring the village. One option is to transfer on small bamboo boats rowed by the local people. The second option is to travel by kayak (self-rowed). The kayaking option is $15 per person.
