Au Co Cruise

Au Co Cruise halong bay
The Au Co Cruise ship is setting new standards of safety and luxury in the Gulf of Tonkin and setting herself apart from other Halong Bay Cruises. Her impressive external steel structure belies the innovative and luxurious Oriental design to be found within.
In the Gulf of Tonkin, we’ve found the ‘location, location, location’. But aboard The Au Co itself, we’ve created ‘space, space, and more space’ .
The ship is a remarkable 55.29m in length and 10.43m in width. Each of our 32 spacious cabins has its own private balcony or terrace – allowing unparalleled private views of the surrounding seascape.
On the upper decks, our elegant restaurant and open-air bars are designed along principles of Feng Shui (or in Vietnamese ‘Phong Thuy’) to heighten our passengers’ sense of connection with the wonderful environment of the surrounding Gulf of Tonkin, as well as giving them a taste of the Orient and Vietnamese culture.
Through the innovative use of space, design features, and luxurious attention to detail, Au Co Cruise aims to give the passengers a truly unique cruise experience for their Halong Bay Tour.

The Au Co Deluxe Cabins
The first thing that strikes you about each of our 32 luxury Cabins and Suites is the sense of space, the abundance of light and the level of refinement in the elegant interiors.
Large floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors in the cabins and cabin bathrooms allow natural light to flood in and offer panoramic views of the Gulf of Tonkin. Most cabins and suites provide additional space and comfort in the form of your own private balcony – the ultimate place to relax and enjoy the fresh air, day or night.
Each of the cabins and suites is tastefully appointed with timber floors, handcrafted wooden mosaic furniture and elegant interiors. Each cabin features individual climate-control thermostats, telephone, MP3 speakers, in-cabin refrigerator, coffee/tea maker, safe box, and hair dryer. Meanwhile the luxurious bathrooms are extremely well appointed with deluxe bathroom amenities.
The Au Co cruise Deluxe Cabins
Located on the main deck, The Au Co Deluxe Cabins, at 20 square metres, are furnished in a minimal style with a choice of double or twin beds, and two lounge chairs with a coffee table. They also feature a MP3 speakers for your in-cabin entertainment.
The bathroom, finished in wooden and mosaic, features a vanity counter and a separate glass-enclosed shower stall, with the picture window offering magnificent views of the passing scenery.

The elegant and luxurious The Au Co Restaurant has been carefully arranged according to the generating principle of Wu Xing, with the dining room featuring both wood and metal elements. On arrival, guests will notice that the interior elements of the wooden furniture and polished wooden floor help air flow, harmonizing the natural light and wind with the surrounding landscape and mountains, giving guests the feeling of being immersed in nature, satisfying the senses of sight and taste.
Meanwhile, metal elements in the dining room are minimized by reducing kitchen and other electrical appliances in the room, which would just distract from the meal. According to the principle that water nourishes wood, the sight of the Gulf’s water and the sound of soft music are simply used to create a calm, gentle atmosphere, which should stimulate guests’ appetites.
The terrace deck of The Au Co Cruise features an open-air bar; again designed with the Feng Shui principle of Yang – Movement – Flexibility, as a counterpoint to the Yin – neutral – Earth element. The spacious bar, named as Lan Ha Bar, with its light rattan furniture are the perfect place to relax and while away your day accompanied by a range of food, beverages, and snacks. Alternatively, Lan Ha Bar is the place to meet after a busy day of activities for a pre-dinner cocktail as the sun sets over the Gulf of Tonkin.
Lan Ha Bar stocks a full complement of aperitifs, wines, cocktails, drinks and snacks, and serves visitors until late at night.
If guests are seeking more privacy and comfort each cabin has its own in-cabin refrigerator, which we can stock with your choice of beverages.

The Au Co Restaurant

The Gulf of Tonkin is the perfect place to experience a wide range of activities, from biking to kayaking, from swimming to squid fishing. Whichever you choose you will do so surrounded by some of the most dramatic and exciting scenery, heightening your sense of adventure.
This is not only a healthy sporting activity but also one of the best and easiest ways to explore the magnificent caves, lagoons and World Heritage sights of Halong Bay; as well as the more unspoilt, neighbouring bays of Lan Ha and Bai Tu Long. Famous for its thousands of islands and islets spread throughout the wide bays, our small kayaks for 1-2 (and even 3) people are not only easy to control and great exercise but also offer a fresh and interesting perspective on the delightful scenery surrounding you.
Biking on Cat Ba Island
Taking a leisurely bike ride through the scenic landscape of Cat Ba National Park is one of the best ways to enjoy the beauty of this wonderful island. Cat Ba is the largest island in the Gulf of Tonkin. Indeed, the Lonely Planet described Cat Ba as being ‘rugged, craggy and jungle-clad, it is straight out of Jurassic Park’.
Swimming and snorkelling
‘Really nice and refreshing’ is how passengers often describe wallowing in the placid waters of Halong Bay, Lan Ha Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay. Indeed, this is an experience not to be missed. Whether you choose to swim or snorkel, The Au Co staff are always on hand to ensure your safety and make sure you have an enjoyable time in the cool, dark waters of the Gulf of Tonkin.
Squid fishing
Sleepless in Halong? We have the cure! As night falls, The Au Co’s staff will hand out fishing rods and guide you in this interesting pastime, which could easily occupy an entire evening. Be patient, focus, and soon, with a flick of the wrist, you can celebrate your very first catch! And of course, your ‘reward’ is to see the fruits of your labour turned into one of many inspired dishes by The Au Co’s team of chefs.
