New Seaplane Transfer in Vietnam

The new aircraft on the ground...
...and in action over Halong Bay
Six Senses, Ninh Binh Bay

The new seaplane service is great news for top-end clients, who can now travel in real style to one of Vietnam’s most iconic sights. The leather-seated seaplane – which can carry 12 passengers – will save a considerable amount of time and people will get a birds’ eye view of the landscape of the Red River Delta.  For an additional £60, there is the option of a wider scenic tour before landing, providing views of Halong Bay that have never been seen before.

Transfers are also offered in the south of Vietnam, with a seaplane flight from Saigon to the beaches of Phan Thiet taking just 45 minutes, as opposed to the usual 3-4 hour drive. Another scenic addition can also be tacked on here, an additional 45 minutes on from Phan Thiet to Nha Trang via the bays of Ninh Van and Van Phong.

We have now incorporated the new seaplane transfer & scenic flight to Halong Bay into our 12 day Imperial Vietnam tour. The tour commences in Hanoi with a guided city tour, followed by a special evening meal at the renowned Green Tangerine restaurant serving French fusion cuisine.

Next up is Halong Bay, with the seaplane transfer leading on to for an exclusive overnight cruise on the private Princess Junk boat, before flying south to explore Hue's Imperial Heritage, and enjoying a private lunch in a restored Royal Home from the Nguyen Dynasty.

The itinerary continues by road over the dramatic Hai Van Pass to the ancient port of Hoi An, famed for its café culture and noble tailors fit for any King or Queen, before ending in majestic style with three nights at the opulent Six Senses Ninh Van Bay in a Beach Pool Villa.
