Cruise Restart In Ha Long, Vietnam. Ha Long Cruise Port, part of the Global Ports Holding network of ports, welcomes Le Laperouse cruise ship marking the restart of cruising in Ha Long, Vietnam
After a 2 year pause of the cruising activities due to the pandemic, today (14 Oct.) Ha Long Cruise Port opens its season with the Ponant Cruises.
Le Laperouse, carrying over 100 passengers will be at the port for 3 days. The cruise passengers will be enjoying Ha Long and its surroundings, visiting several attractions such as Halong Bay, Trang An (Ninh Bình) and Hanoi Capital.
Thao Van Nguyen, Port Manager of Ha Long Cruise Port said: “With the support of the Vietnam Government thanks to its policies, Vietnam has reopened to international travel & tourism on March 15th. As Ha Long Cruise Port, we are delighted to welcome all cruise passengers, crew & ship once again with all necessary protocols in place for health & safety.”
Ha Long Cruise Port is the first and only cruise port in Vietnam capable of welcoming the world’s largest and most modern cruise ship to Ha Long Bay located in the heart of Ha Long city. Part of the Global Ports Holding network of ports through a management agreement, Ha Long Cruise Port expects a double increase of calls for the 2023 season.
With a combination of beautiful emerald waters and scattered islands, Ha Long Bay is an UNESCO Site Heritage. Towering limestone pillars and tiny islets topped by forest rise from the waters of the Gulf of Tonkin. A vision of ethereal beauty and, unsurprisingly, northern Vietnam’s number one-tourism hub. Ha Long has received the National Cup of Environment as Green City – clean – beautiful.
