ACLASS STELLAR CRUISE AREA

Ha Long Bay is a World Heritage site in Vietnam twice recognized by UNESCO – in 1994 and 1999. With almost 2000 islands rising from the emerald water of the Gulf of Tonkin, Ha Long Bay is an excellent example of a karst limestone landscape created by a complex series of geological movement over millions of years.

HALONG BAY STORY

A local legend tells the following tale of the origins of Ha Long Bay – “Long ago, the Viet people were attacked by foreign aggressors. The Jade Emperor sent the Mother Dragon and her band of Dragon Children to help the Viet people fight the invaders. While the enemy vessels were launching massive attacks against the mainland, the dragons descended in flocks from the sky. They exhaled innumerable pearls which transformed into jade stone islands the moment they touched the water. These islands linked together to form strong citadels that checked the enemy’s advance and smashed their vessels to pieces. After the invaders were driven out, Mother Dragon and her Dragon Children did not return to Heaven but stayed on earth, right at the place where the battle occurred. The spot where the Mother Dragon landed was Ha Long, and where the Dragon Children came down was Bai Tu Long.” 

Halong floating village – This floating village of about 50 families has a population of 200 – 300 residents, including almost 100 children. These families have lived in this village for generations. The village is a “floating village” with no structures built on land. Traditionally, income for food and potable water (imported from the mainland) came solely from fishing. Now tourism provides an additional source of income. Their floating houses look spacious and clean. One community house is where villagers come to have meetings. This is also the place where tourists stop over to buy traditional handmade items. It is interesting to see the lively children going to “school”. Their bustling calls and the sound of their oars breaking water enliven the atmosphere of the quiet bay. Looking at the small boats driven by tiny oars and the radiant faces of the children going to school, one feels confident in a bright future for the fishing village.

ACLASS STELLAR CRUISE SPECIAL ITINERARY

You’ll love swimming in the refreshing emerald waters of the bay and strolling along natural sandy beaches. Perhaps you’ll join in some of the many nautical activities supported by Aclass Stellar Cruise. After any of these activities you’ll find a quick dip very fresh and invigorating.

ACLASS  STELLAR CRUISE DISCOVERY MAZE CAVE IN HALONG BAY

Of all the caves in Halong bay, Hang Me Cung or Me Cung cave is amongst the most beautiful. Me Cung Cave (Maze cave) is located on an island named Lom Bo about 2 km southwest of Ti Top beach on Ti Top island. The cave entrance is 25 metres above sea level. Looking from a distance, the entrance of the cave is like a house roof carved deep into the slopes of the island. Approached via a walk up over stone steps cut into the cliff, the cave is dry and airy. The floor is formed from a thick layer of melania (trumpet) snail shell fossils. Fossilised animal bones have been recently discovered. Me Cung Cave (Maze grotto) was identified by archaeologists as one of the sites of pre-Halong culture, going back to early Neolithic times from 7,000 to 10,000 years. Going inside the Maze cave, visitors are seemingly entering the palace of a Persian king where you can easily imagine an ancient voice telling the story of “1001 Nights”. Elsewhere on the island those with sharp eyes may have the thrill of spotting exotic birds and animals such as monkeys, langurs, chamois, and lizards.

LAN HA BAY – ACLASS STELLAR CRUISE VISIT DAY AND NIGHT GROTTO BY LAN HA BAY KAYAKING

At water-level, an arched entrance leads to the grotto, just at the base of the island. Passing through the attractive entrance, you come across a tranquil circular lake, surrounded by luxuriant trees and high cliffs. Monkeys run to and fro in groups, benjamin fig trees shade the landscape and many orchids display their sweet-scented flowers. In the lake, many species abound: shrimp, fish, crab and cuttle-fish. This is an enclosed group of islands. It connects with the sea via a 4-meter-wide, 100-meter-long, and 3-meter-high entrance. Inside the grotto, the brackish lake is surrounded by mountains. Up on the cliff there are still traces of fossils of fresh-water snails – evidence that they were part of the early inhabitants’ diet and that this must have been a deep valley at the time.

ACLASS STELLAR CRUISE VISIT BA TRAI DAO ISLET IN LAN HA BAY KAYAKING

This island consists of three small mountains with the height of 23 m. From a distance they resemble three peaches – giving the island its romantic name “Ba Trai Dao”. The island connects to a legend of about the romantic love between a beautiful young fairy a poor young fisherman. To show her love she stole three peaches from Heaven for him, that if he ate, would give him eternal life, allowing them to live together forever. The King of the Heavens discovered the robbery and turned the peaches into three stone islands. Chastised, the young fairy had to return without her dear fisherman.
Today, Ba Trái Ðào is a famous tourist attraction with three lovely “fairy” beaches surrounded by a romantic landscape. It is 22 km from Bai Chay Tourist Wharf.
