As a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site, Halong Bay is usually at the top of the to-do-list for tourists visiting Vietnam. The bay is truly spectacular, with almost 2000 limestone karsts arising from the sea. The best way to explore is by junk boat, stopping off at beaches, fishing villages and exploring some of the magical caves on the islands. YESD is proud to partner with a responsible tourism operator in Halong Bay that has a strong commitment to keeping the bay clean, helping the local people and offering scholarships for children. You’ll cruise in style when you visit Halong Bay with YESD!



We give local people employment, income and learning opportunities so they are directly involved in your tourism experience. Our guides and hosts will give you a special insight into culture and life in Vietnam.


We aim to minimise the negative impacts of tourism on the environment and the local community while contributing positively to local economies. We don’t just talk responsible tourism, we act!
