Floating fishing village and rock island in Halong Bay, Vietnam, Southeast Asia.

Vietnam’s legendary Ha Long Bay is one of Asia’s most iconic scenes, an UNESCO-listed wonderland showcasing some of Mother Nature’s finest work.

Spanning a vast area of over 1,500 square miles, the emerald green and aquamarine waters of the bay are scatted with more than 1,900 mostly uninhabited – and therefore largely unspoilt – limestone isles, islets and karsts of various shapes and sizes, dotted with naturally carved caverns, grottos and lakes, creating a must-be-seen-to-be-believed landscape and unmissable views and photo opportunities.

A visit to Ha Long on a Fred. Olsen cruise presents an opportunity to uncover some of the most spectacular islands, see remarkable rock formations, lush forests, coral reefs and colourful caves up-close, and revel in bay’s astonishing tranquillity on a boat tour – a simply unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime experience.
