Things to do
Bike in the serene Viet Hai Village
Viet Hai is perhaps the most significant destination that guests are able to visit. It takes about 4 km from the port to the village gate and there are many ways to reach Viet Hai: walking, biking, or paying for a round-trip seat on a trolley. The most suggested transportation is biking because it allows you to watch the path to the village according to your own speed and does not cause too much sweat. The surrounding is absolutely serene with clear air.
Swim in the “Love Story” area of Halong Bay
Passengers can take a swim in the jade-colored water or sunbathe on a private beach nestled behind the cave. This is when you can munch in the stunning views while indulging in the pristine water, especially enjoying the most idyllic Trinh Nu scene.
BBQ Party on Sundeck
On the last night onboard The Au Co, you will be treated with a sumptuous BBQ Buffet Party. The freshest seafood and tons of other great surprises will remain as memories of a lifetime.
Be excited to see the fruit-carving demonstration
Not only cooking delicious dishes in different cuisines, but our chefs can also be phenomenal artists at carving fruits into lively shapes of mythical animals like a dragon or aesthetic patterns. To learn more about this handicraft, joining a demonstration onboard will be a new experience for you.
