Peony Cruise

Opt : 2days/1night - sleep on cruise

Trip code: PENC2D

Like a striking large red peony in the sea, each boat of Peony Cruises shows its noble color among others, giving each guest his or her own palace. The royal beauty represents the intricate design of the reception space, each cabin, the restaurant, the spa and the bar in a fine combination, thanks to talented designers from France, the country that is famous for imperial architecture and design. In addition, every item on board also meets strict Western standards for the highest quality. As the boat takes you through the most attractive areas of the Tonkin Gulf, with immense limestone mountains standing millions of years, tranquil floating villages, some people spreading their fishnets or some fish jumping over the water surface of the World Heritage Site, you can contemplate beautiful nature without any bustling noisy city for a smooth escape to peace - the symbol of a full-bloom peony.
