Geordie Greig, the editor of the London Evening Standard, Europe’s largest circulation evening newspaper, visited Vietnam and Cambodia in November 2011. There, he found “luxury, rich history and vibrant cultule”. He was also impressed by the natural beauty of Halong Bay, UNESCO heritage site as well as the charm and luxury of Bhaya Cruises. Below is what he wrote about Bhaya Cruises:
“The Bhaya, an elegant junk with 20 cabins, is sailing in Halong Bay, 100 miles east of Hanoi. It begs for Agatha Christie to set Monsieur Poirot a mystery on board. It is light, airy and comfortable but full of potential for a whodunit: a very respectable couple from Shropshire sit next to a young gay couple from Germany, while a boisterous Australian family order drinks. Some try squid-fishing from the lower deck after a fresh crab dinner served on crisp white tablecloths.
Canoes are available in the afternoon for the more adventurous, and a spa is discreetly set up by white-uniformed staff for those who want to do nothing. This is a quirky sea venture: Bing Crosby songs alternate with Russian-Scottish music at the bar; cocktails are only a couple of dollars or so a shot. Vietnam at every stage is delightful and inexpensive.”
