Garden Bay Legend Cruise


Garden Bay Legend Cruise has recently reopened its doors since August 2017 after undergoing extensive renovations. Modeled after a traditional wooden junk, this cruise boasts wood-paneled lounges, shimmering silks, and Indochine-style furnishings. The cabins, designed with simplicity yet elegance in mind, feature large windows that offer perfect views of the ever-changing scenery of Halong Bay.

With just ten cabins, Garden Bay Legend provides an intimate setting for exploring Halong Bay. You can start your day before dawn with a Tai Chi class on the Sundeck, participate in a Vietnamese cooking class with the friendly kitchen staff, and share stories on plush sofas in the boat’s cozy bar. Surrounded by the legendary islands of Bai Tu Long Bay in Halong, visitors are sure to feel relaxed, recharged, and inspired by this magical journey.

Relaxation comes naturally with your Halong Bay Cruises, book today!
