Heritage Line Ylang

Halong Bay - Cat Ba Island & Viet Hai Village – Lan Ha Bay Mooring – Cat Ba National Park – Tuan Chau Marina

Ylang, the newest addition to Heritage Line’s Lan Ha Bay ship line, has an exquisite combination of Asian-Vietnamese style and French-Colonial flair. This historic Indochina flare pervades the vessel, with a delicate flower leitmotif inspired by native poetry and representing the four seasons of the year. Local craftsmen created hand-crafted paintings and artwork for Heritage Line Ylang using various materials and techniques. All suites are dedicated to a particular blossom, which typically represents a season in Vietnam. All this creates an inimitable sense of bliss and an exceptional abode at sea.

This luxury cruise has only ten spacious suites on two decks – each room is flooded with natural light pouring in through floor-to-ceiling panoramic doors that open onto a private balcony. What makes Ylang unique, is her expansive spa with its extensive selection of thoughtfully selected treatments. The focus on wellness lives on in the more dynamic activities such as “singing bowl” meditation or early morning Tai Chi lessons on the upper deck.
