Au Co Cruise

Halong Bay – Ho Ba Ham – Lan Ha Bay – Ba Trao Dao – Cat Ba Island – Viet Hai Village

The Au Co Luxury Cruise is the A class Halong Bay Cruise with unique continuous three-day two-night itinerary. The cruise will take you further, exploring Untouched Island so you can experience its distinctive geology, local history and endemic flora and fauna.

Aboard the Au Co Luxury Cruise, a luxury cruise means a safe cruise. Unwilling to compromise the customers’ experience, aboard the Au Co we have set new benchmarks in Halong for both luxury and safety. The Au Co makes sure to deliver the full comfort and memorable cruise experiences for passengers.
The cruise also offers you a chance to participate in the variety of activities, throughout the 3 day cruise, which creates an authentic and traditional Vietnamese cultural experience.
