Photo Essay: 24 Hours in Halong Bay

When you're in one of the most magical corners of the globe, every moment counts.
A perfect day aboard the Emeraude Classic Cruises in the UNESCO-recognized seascape of Halong Bay begins and ends at the wharf, but the hours in between are what you make them. For adventurous travelers there's kayaking, sunrise tai chi and cave explorations. For the leisure set, foot reflexology massages and afternoon crepes. For families, cooking classes and pearl farm excursions. And for everyone, there's the grand possibility of relaxing in a lounger at sunset, doing absolutely nothing but admiring the scenery as it goes by. The best way to describe a one-day holiday in photogenic Halong Bay is not in words, but pictures. To see a selection of hi-res images and an accompanying photo essay, please contact: esther
