After lunch, you are free to relax on sundeck. While the light of afternoon decreases slightly, hundreds of islands with different
shares definitely amaze you by its natural beauty. What Genesis makes your trip different is not the sights of Halong, but the line

This is a moment you get closer to Halong’s nature. if you do not join any above activities, you could stay on sundeck for relaxing, then the boat will take you around the bay, do sightseeing other beautiful islets…such as Human head, Horse seat…Normally, this area is full of Cruises and tourists, but Genesis is one of the first cruises come here for the afternoon, so it is really peaceful and less-touristic.

In particular, the second compartment suddenly expanded immensely with curved domes printed in streaks of very smooth and smooth hats, wholly over the head like a large, wide theater. This is the hugest and most beautiful cave in Halong bay, locates in the core area of the heritage site.
