Halong Bay Cruise and Hotel Blog - Paradise Vietnam

Always looking for ways in which we can stay ahead of the game, this year will see a complete renovation of our Luxury vessels, ensuring that Paradise Cruises is still providing the best cruises in Halong Bay.

ParadiseVietnam_Renovation (1)

The four Paradise Luxury cruise have always constituted the finest fleet in the Bay. Together the fleet offers a total of 68 cabins, with each vessel housing an elegant dining room, a relaxing onboard spa, and an incredible sundeck with wrap-around views. Earlier in the year we introduced themed royal evenings and traditional tea demonstrations to the delight of our guests, the popularity of the activities evident from the great luxury Halong Bay tour reviews.

But now we have taken the Luxury vessels a step further by refreshing the design concept. The cabins have been fitted with more comfortable beds making sure that everyone sleeps soundly when they cruise with us…

We are new, only 7 months old and growing.  WE list several online booking, travel agency, all for free as we think it helps those that follow us.  We are growing so ask to join as an affiliate with  with us understanding may not be accepted to lack of visits per month as we are new.  Kinda of test the water.  Easy process as just give them your web site and URL so they can find it.  Straight forward.

They emailed back saying the following:

The content on your website is unrelated to travel.

      – The content on your website doesn’t reach our minimum quality requirements.

      – The website is too recent and therefore is not indexed and cached by Google and/or doesn’t have a Google PageRank.

      – We are unable to provide tracking for this URL as it uses a public domain.

      – The website is still under construction.

      – The URL could not be found.

The last was really stupid ” the url could not be found”  wow  How would you know any of the above without looking at the website!

The web site is not under construction!  The domain is private and paid for!  Do a google search and on the first page!  the website is SE Asia with over 500 post all related to travel in SE Asia!

Needless to say  I would not trust an outfit that is so unprofessional.  I was not surprised to be rejected for lack of traffic  etc  just expected them to do their job!

Halong Bay Cruise and Hotel Blog - Paradise Vietnam

Paradise Cruises is always one step ahead. This year we will be going even further, cruising for longer, and getting our valued guests even deeper into Halong Bay.

A Halong cruise has become a must-do activity in Vietnam and parts of the Bay are beginning to get a little congested. The ‘Fighting Cocks’ and ‘Surprise Cave’ areas are becoming especially crowded and in 2014 some of our guests raised their concerns that there were just too many boats.

Surprise Cave has become especially crowded. Surprise Cave has become especially crowded.

At Paradise we always aim to provide a luxury Halong cruise experience, and that doesn’t just mean fantastic facilities onboard but also exclusive cruising away from the crowds. For years now our Paradise Explorer vessels have gone deep into the southern part of the Bay, and we have provided a unique Halong Bay private cruise experience on our Paradise Privilege which is available for charter.

Our Paradise Explorer vessels go deep into the southern part of the Bay, around Cat Ba Island and Lan Ha Bay. Our…

Climbing Mount Kinabalu (on the cheap!)

Lorna Explores

I climbed the highest mountain in South East Asia yesterday. I can’t feel my legs. 4,095m up in the sky, all the pain was worth it.

I wasn’t always sure I’d get the chance to climb Kinabalu due to different things I’d heard about cost and availability but when I stayed at the lovely North Borneo Cabin in Kota Kinabalu the owner told me about the deal at Jungle Jack’s and so I jumped at the chance and left the next day.

Mount Kinabalu Jungle Jack’s

Jungle Jack’s is just outside the National Park. Jack is an absolute diamond and completely runs the show. We were provided with steaming hot showers, kitchen and food supplies as well as dinner in a local restaurant. Cute dogs for company – always an added bonus. 420 ringgit (£110) included 3 nights accommodation (the second night is spent in a lodge on the…
