Dear Customer,

Thank you for your interest regarding a River Cruise holiday on the Red River & Halong Bay with Pandaw Cruises.

Please find details of a sample itinerary for you contained within this link.

You can navigate between the elements to view the day-by-day itinerary, the accommodation and the flights and other transport information.

On a Pandaw ship travellers are able to explore the key sites of Northern Vietnam by river ship traversing the Red River delta and its main tributaries, connecting the wonders of Halong Bay with the excitements of downtown Hanoi, and then on into the interior, well off the beaten track. This is a combination of scenic beauty, lively and interesting (sometimes industrial) life of the river and exploring rivers where no other tourist craft operate.

Sailing deep into Highland Vietnam we will discover the mountain villages and a number of tribal areas. We will go as far as is navigable up the Song Red River and then down the little known Da or Black River. Note that this is a real river expedition and itineraries and schedules very much subject to change due to uncertain local conditions.

We have included 1 night pre-cruise in Hanoi in this itinerary.

Please bear in mind that all of our holidays are tailor made and can be adjusted to suit your interests, time, hotel & airline choice and be tailored to fit your budget.

We have worked very closely with Pandaw Cruises for many years and always have their best preferential fares and offers.

We are able to hold a cabin for you whilst you consider your options, and we also have all the benefits on offer for Pandaw Club Members, so just let us know if you are a repeat customer with Pandaw.

Call us today on 03 669 2332 and speak to a Vietnam expert about your trip.

Kind regards,

The Team @ Red Dragonfly Travel
