    • 3 One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World Halong Bay - VietnamHalong Bay - Vietnam EXPERIENCE THE JADE GREEN WATERS Every day, the Emeraude journeys through one of the world’s most dazzling natural wonders and into the sepia realm of a dream. Named for a cruising vessel that plied these waters between 1906 and 1937, the Emeraude aspires to the magnificence of the bay itself. Its air-conditioned cabins, en suite bathrooms, award-winning cuisine and spacious deck space set the stage for the voyage of a lifetime. www.emeraude-cruises.com
    • Emeraude Classic Cruises 4Sung Sot Cave GO CAVING AT SUNG SOT GROTTO Early French tourists who wandered among the 10,000 square meters of this cavern dubbed this space “Grotte des Surprises”, or Surprise Cave. Sung Sot more than lives up to its name on Bon Ho Island, situated right at the heart of the UNESCO-recognised World Heritage area. From the wharf, 50 steep stone steps lead up to the entrance, but the view is worth the effort.  The grotto features thousands of stalactites and stalagmites. Paths, lights and signposts guide you through two caves which continue to offer yet more twists, turns and, yes, surprises throughout.www.emeraude-cruises.com
