Ha Long Bay boost

Cruise Weekly - - News -

THE re­cently com­pleted Ha Long-Hai Phong Ex­press­way in Viet­nam will lead to a surge in Ha Long Bay cruises, ac­cord­ing to the Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of in-bound op­er­a­tor Di­ethelm Travel Viet­nam, Jeff Redl.

Redl told re­gional me­dia he ex­pected the new road, which ef­fec­tively halves the travel time be­tween Hanoi and Ha Long Bay, to “spark a rise in de­mand for cruises, es­pe­cially day trip­pers”.

“We of­fered few day cruises from Hanoi in the past...by con­sid­er­ably re­duc­ing the time spent in a ve­hi­cle, we will be more con­fi­dent at of­fer­ing such a ser­vice,” he said.
