Dear Luong Nguyen, Thank you for your email and question. Our shuttle bus only picks you up from Ha Noi Old Quater Area to Ha Long bay. You can book a taxi or ask Vinpearl Resort's receptionist to help you book a taxi from Vinperal Resort to Au Co cruise pier in Tuan Chau Marina. As I checked, it's around 12km from Vinpearl Resot to Au Co cruise pier. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Best regards, Ms.Mina

We wish we can stay longer on the boat. The service was incredible thanks to the cruise manager, Tom. The food was outstanding as was the tours. We loved spending time on the sun deck to enjoy the scenery. Halong Bay was so gorgeous. It was a memorable trip, you won't regret it if you choose Au Co Cruise.
