Au Co Cruise 2 Days 1 Night

2 Days


Welcome aboard The Au Co

One of the prettiest ships in Halong, the steel-hulled Au Co offers smooth sailing through Halong and Lan Ha bays. Retrace the steps of colonial-era explorers in vintage style aboard this 32-cabin ship, visiting hidden beaches, forested islands, and gorgeous sea lakes.

In early 2020, the twin Au Co ships received a comprehensive renovation, lending a beautiful contemporary feel to the ancient Vietnamese legend on which the ships are inspired. Returning guests will enjoy the same sophisticated ambiance aboard the Au Co with several delightful upgrades. Updated cabins feature a modern Asian flair, subtly incorporating design elements telling the love story of Princess Au Co and her Dragon Lord of the Sea.
