Sail, Sip, and Splash: My Group Cruise Vacation in Halong Bay, Vietnam

Stepping onto the deck of the Party Bay Cruise, I knew I was in for a voyage unlike any other. As a cardiologist, my days are typically filled with the hustle and bustle of hospitals and clinics, but this trip promised a reprieve from the usual. 

Joining a small group tour to Vietnam’s famed Halong Bay, courtesy of Bamba Travel, offered the perfect blend of adventure and relaxation. Over two days, I found myself immersed in the stunning landscapes, vibrant culture, and rejuvenating experiences that Halong Bay has to offer.

Lunch was a delightful affair, fueling us for an afternoon of exploration.

From somersaults and backflips to kayaking and refreshing dips, there was no shortage of activities to enjoy amidst the stunning backdrop of Halong Bay. The giant trampoline and jacuzzi added an extra layer of excitement, creating memories that would last a lifetime.

As the sun dipped below the horizon, we gathered for a Sunset party, complete with special drinks offers and panoramic views. Dinner was a culinary delight, showcasing the talents of the best Chef in Ha Long Bay.
