These rock formations are located in the vicinity of Ba Hang fishing village and are popular tourist attractions in Halong Bay. Visitors can take a scenic boat ride through the area to get a closer look at these natural wonders and marvel at the intricate details of these rock formations. The impressive size and unique shapes of these rocks offer a memorable experience and a great opportunity to take stunning photographs.

In the early afternoon , explore Sung Sot Cave, the largest and most beautiful cave in Halong Bay, with the tour guide.

Overall - 9.65/10

Amethyst Cruise is a good choice for a 5-star day cruise in Halong Bay, suitable for tourists who don’t have much time to travel. As the cruise is newly launched, both the interior and exterior are new. We appreciate the staff and services, which is one of the cruise’s strong points. A long trip with a duration of up to 7.5 hours enables explorers to catch a glance at this wonderful heritage site.


Facilities & Amenities - 9.8/10

With a total of 3 decks, the cruise’s capacity is huge - about 100 people onboard. The 1st and 2nd decks are restaurants with classy designs of Eastern and Western style, and large glass windows provide vast Halong views for guests while they enjoy their meals.

The 2nd deck also has balconies to admire the bay, all balustrades are made of glass, which gives a better experience onboard. The sundeck is a wonderful place to unwind, having a Jacuzzi and delicate lounges.


  • Both the facilities and appearance are new. Full amenities onboard
  • Relaxing 4-season Jacuzzi and nice lounge on sundeck
  • Clean, modern toilets & coated bathrooms, toiletries are equipped fully
  • All-glass balustrades give a more enjoyable experience while viewing the scenery of the bay
  • Restaurants with large capacity: 1st deck - 60 guests, 2nd deck - 30 guests. The window’s glass is UV & sunlight-blocking


  • Should have more coated bathrooms for guests (There are 6 coated bathrooms and 4 toilets for male & female in both 2 desks; if the cruise have a large number of guests onboard, some will have to wait long to use)
  • Wifi onboard is not stable


Foods & Drinks - 9/10

The food concentrates on Vietnamese cuisine, with many tasty seafood dishes. The meal is quite good, while drinks (including a welcome drink and afternoon tea) are refreshing and tasty.


  • Types of food are various, consisting of Vietnamese traditional cuisine, Asian & European food, as well as vegetarian food for vegans.
  • Seafood comprises a high proportion of buffet lunch, seafood is fresh and delicious


  • Dishes are limited; should offer more dishes for buffet lunch


Activities - 9.8/10

The cruise provides diverse activities for guests that are suitable for both seniors and young people, from exploring dry caves, kayaking, swimming, climbing, etc. For relaxation lovers, you can just stay on the cruise and chill on the sundeck.


  • Long time onboard - up to 7.5 hours
  • Variety of fun activities for travelers, especially kayaking through Luon Cave and climbing to the peak of Titov Island for a panoramic view of Halong


  • Sung Sot Cave will be explored first before the buffet lunch, so guests may feel tired after the cave tour


Services - 10/10

Though the cruise is new, the services on board are exceptional. The staff team of Amethyst is kind, friendly, and professional.


  • The staff is knowledgeable, tourists are introduced to the destination before visiting
  • Attentive to guests if they need any help, as well as always paying attention to safety onboard if children move to a dangerous area


  • Both of the crew and services are excellent, we have no complaints about this.

Lovely cruise

A typical route to Halong Bay, only 8 hours to go on a full itinerary and fun activities. It's great. The staff was really nice, but the buffet menu needs to be more diverse. If the crowds are your concern, it's better to travel on winter days. Anyways, the cruise ship is really new and clean.

Great new cruise. Nice services

The two most interesting features I was impressed with about Amethyst are the great cruise quality and full facilities for a day cruise in Halong. Especially, the tender was superb without fuel smell and good air conditioning. However, the transfer made me a bit disappointed because of the delay. Overall, it was satisfying when booking with BestPrice Travel.

Ask a Question

Quite interested in your package for tomorrow morning, for three people. We are just curious it says lunch at the end of your itinerary, but then it doesn’t mention it in the price of including things. Could you confirm if there is lunch or not? And could you confirm that you are starting at 10 AM from the port : Chợ Cảng Tầu Quốc Tế Tuần Châu A1 ( The A1 Tuan Chau International Port Market ) We will make a decision shortly after we receive a response. Kindly, Jung Family


There is lunch during the trip for you with buffet. The tour will start at the port at 10 am from Tuan Chau International Port Station.
