Overview

Perla Dawn Sails offer an off-the-beaten-path cruise experience to Lan Ha Bay, the southern part of Halong Bay, where the scenic landscape has no difference with its better know Halong Bay.

We welcome you on our cruise to immerse yourself in the breathtaking scenery of Lan Ha Bay while experience luxury cruise service on a traditional ship, showing numerous features of Vietnamese culture. While other boats feed on modern and sophisticated designs and styles, Perla Dawn still maintains the original traditional styled designs with wooden specifics, which makes us like no other.

Beyond our expectations

We had a great tour around Ha Long Bay on the Perla Dawn Sails (recommended by Ha Long Hub – thank you for that, by the way). We truly enjoying the classic Indochina decor, of which the rooms were very comfy. The food was great and the staffs (specially mentioned Harry and Kenny) were very helpful. We also loved bicycle riding, kayaking and swimming. Of course not to forget the live performance of Vietnamese traditional music on deck at night. Very impressive. We would highly recommend this cruise.

Relax trip

We spent two days and one night. The staff is excellent, they are very attentive to customers. Also here, as in the rest of Vietnam, cages reserved special treatment for me who was pregnant. Excellent cleaning. From Hanoi, the boarding took about 2.5 hours but with a really comfortable limo. The activities are mainly two excursions one in the evening on arrival one the next morning by kayak. The price includes all meals served onboard during the excursion. In short, very satisfied, for the landscape and the climate that you breathe; a little less for the sea that leaves much to be desired.

Amazing landscape, beautiful boat, super helpful staff

Apart from the extraordinary landscape (but the same for all boats), a very professional organization, a freshly launched boat of great quality (the Junior Suite room is great, do not hesitate to take it …), of proper size (about 15 rooms). The staff is very attentive. Amazing.
