Hanoi, Vietnam, February 28, 2018 --(PR.com)-- A new artful cruise offers the chance to cruise the Gulf of Tonkin in Lan Ha Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay and Halong Bay, in one unique itinerary in the Gulf of Tonkin. The transfer by limousine through the 5B highway cuts the trip down to only 1.5 hours from Hanoi to Cat Ba Archipelago.

After successful operations in both Nha Trang and Bai Tu Long Bay, Emperor Cruises will launch its third boutique cruise in the Cat Ba Archipelago, Hai Phong, Vietnam in March 2019. This new launch will offer the chance to cruise the Gulf of Tonkin (Lan Ha Bay- Bai Tu Long Bay and Halong Bay) in a five-star all-inclusive cruise with butlers and a limousine, signature characteristic of the whole Emperor Cruises line.

The Cat Ba Archipelago is an exotic destination with pristine beaches, secluded lagoons, coves, tropical forests and lakes that allow holidaymakers to discover the best places for swimming, kayaking and biking and many hideaways to explore in the Gulf of Tonkin.
