Why us?


More than 20 – year experience in organizing tours to Halong Bay but still in the crowd of tourists and 500 boats, we realize that we need to make something new for you with this destination. It is UniCharm Cruise!

Instead of spending too much time on the old road to Quang Ninh province, you will shortly get to Hai Phong city and cross the strait to Cat Hai Island by a newly launched bridge. We will introduce you a unique area of Halong Bay from its back side where you rarely see tourist boats.

By this tour itinerary, we believe that we will satisfy customers who are not interested in crowded tourist attractions and those who have passion for discovering.
