Itinerary

8h00 - 8h30: Pick up from your hotel in the Old Quarter of Hanoi, where we collect most of the people that will be your shipmates for the following 2 days and 1 night of spectacular scenery, along with fun. We will have a 3½ to 4 hour bus ride to Tuan Chau Harbour. The Party Cruise bus is big, comfortable, and fully air conditioned so you can take the time to meet some of the other guests or get some sleep if you were out drinking late in Hanoi.

12h30: Arrive at Tuan Chau Harbour for a 30 minute break before taking a smaller transfer boat to the Oasis Cruise.

13h30-14h45: Check into your cabin put your bags down and then enjoy a real Vietnamese lunch while the boat begins to cruise majestically through Halong Bay. Enjoy the absolute mind blowing landscape of this beautiful place. In 2011, after 500 million votes were calculated, it was named one of the New7Wonders of Nature.
The best part is, Oasis Bay has a private route in Halong Bay, away from the bottleneck of boats honking and fighting for space.

14h45: Spend over an hour kayaking through the tunnel and into the hidden lagoons where your tour guide will tell you all about the area, and the folklore of how ‘Ha Long Bay’ got its name (translates to ‘Descending Dragon Bay’). This is a great moment to get some action photos in the bay, if you have a waterproof pouch for your phone or camera.

16h30: Jump 7+ meters off the second level of our boat, go for a refreshing swim, bounce around and have a good laugh on our giant inflatable trampoline, or just grab a beer and enjoy in our massive 20 person Jacuzzi while you listen to some music and get ready for an epic sunset.

17h30BEER YOGA! We’ve taken our favorite two activities (it doesn’t have to be beer…any beverage will do) and mashed them together in a fun, playful introductory yoga class...never tried yoga before? No worries, our yoga has beer and jokes involved, to make it fun for everyone of any skill level (including ‘no skill’)! We get ot do all this on our sundeck, at sunset, with the mountains pass by while we cruise along. It does not get better than this, for a yoga studio.
