The exceptional beauty of Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay unfurls from the deck of the Escape Cruise. This is a cruise with a distinguishable heart – one that shows you the verdant scene of mystical Halong Bay with a style and opulence befitting its twice-recognised UNESCO status. Of the vast list of achievements that our team has accrued over its almost decade-long service in the northeastern corner of Vietnam, we consider this luxury Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay day tour – the Escape Sails Cruise – to be our finest.
The Escape Sails is the newest endeavour of a company with almost 10 years’ experience, working across the board with other cruises such as LaFairy Sails, the Perla Dawn Sails and the V’Spirit Cruise.
