After check-in you’ll have lunch on-board as you enjoy the view while the boat heads south away from the other tourist junks. After lunch you’ll explore the amazing Sung Sot Vate and then stop off at Titov Island where you will have free time to swim, relax on the beach, or climb to the top of the island for a panoramic view of the bay. Back on-board the junk, you will have time to relax, enjoy the spa and massage service and take advantage of the Happy Hour at the bar if you desire. A delicious dinner will be served in the dining room. In the evening, you can choose to take part in some squid fishing, board-games, or join your host as they tell you some local legends on the top-deck bar.
