Luxury Lan Ha Bay & Halong Bay Cruise Tours from ERA Cruises
Welcome to ERA Cruises, the home of luxury Lan Ha Bay cruises and Halong Bay cruise tours that will show you a different side of the beautiful country that is Vietnam. Our luxury cruise vessels disembark from the exclusive Lan Ha Bay, which is the bay situated right next to the popular Halong Bay. Our Luxury 2 to 3-day cruise tours explore the waters and famous attractions of both bays, but many of our passengers prefer to disembark from Lan Ha Bay as it’s a pristine, less crowded and a much more exclusive destination compared to its famous neighbour Halong Bay. If you are looking to plan a trip to Vietnam and you are looking for something a little different, have a look at the different Lan Ha Bay tours and Halong Bay tours that we have available and see the itineraries from which you can choose. A visit to the land of the blue dragon will leave you in awe with some of the spectacular scenery that is on offer, and you are sure to make special memories that will last a lifetime when you disembark from Lan Ha Bay on one of the Halong Bay cruises with ERA Cruises.
