In the natural beauty of this exceptional jewel of nature, Secret Halong takes on its bold, elegant character, simplicity and humbleness prevailing. After an exhilarating experience on the bay…a time for regeneration, rest and relaxation. Regain your senses, catch your breath…all in the refined comfort of the cabins, meticulously designed down to the very last details of color and fabric.

We had a pick up and drop off arranged. We were picked up at our hotel in Hanoi and driving to Halong Bay and then returned to Hanoi. I would ask Secret Halong Cruise about transfers. Its very common.
