Company’s Product Development Orientation
Halong Genesis Cruise started the project with the Halong tour one day, the immediate goal of the company is taking the new trend of Halong Day Cruise from Hanoi. This will be the main tour of Halong in the coming years due to some reasons as increasing ticket prices, Ha Noi – Halong new expressway system is completed, better quality of transportation… Besides, it is found that the tour Halong one day to join the guests have not really many tour organizers focus, so there are still many limitations. And Genesis will give customers the most complete product to have the trip to Halong really comfortable as well as complete experience of destination. And also, Genesis is first once company in Hanoi who apply smartphone technology on language support applications for travelers who could not speak well English by audio guide system. In addition, the using of luxury limousines also to create comfort for guests on the road. Experiencing the Halong bay, besides the service, the route (itinerary) also plays an important role, so Halong Genesis Cruise chose route number 2, visit the Sung Sot (Surprising) cave, the beautiful and largest cave Halong, so guests will also have experience like an overnight cruise trip, that will help customer to save budget and time. In addition to looking for quality service, we also want our products to be local culture. That is why we choose the traditional wooden sail ship, décor interior is oriental style…
By September 1, 2018, the Hanoi – Halong highway was inaugurated and put into use, helping to reduce time between the two cities to 2 hours instead of 4 hours before. This helps Genesis’s Orientation in providing a high-quality one-day tour with the comfort of traveling and the fullest experience of Halong Bay.
Together with the high quality day tour, another project of the company is developed in early 2018, which is the luxury Regal Cruise, serving tourists in the Halong Bay – Lan Ha. – Cat Ba Island. The Total projects have 6 Cruises, which will be implemented from May 2018.

Why is The Name Genesis?
For any start up, naming your project is also an interesting and also much enthusiasm. The first name chosen for the company was not Genesis. It is another English name, Odyssey, comes from Greek mythology, following to the trend of ships naming in Halong Bay such as Aphrodite, Hera, Athena, Calypso … However, after careful study of the orientation product, enterprise’s culture, chose the last name is Genesis, full name is Halong Genesis Cruise. Genesis is a Greek original word, today widely used in many languages of different countries. Its meaning is “originality”, “origin to be something”, ‘’traditional”, ‘’creation’’ … that is also true of the company’s orientation is the desire to bring the traditional features of the country into the Its products, cultural characteristics of East Asia. Genesis is also the name of the first book in the Bible, explaining the origin of life on our planet, which is also familiar to many nations around the world.
The last action to confirm that name choosing, we have tried a foreign tourist consultation at Hoan Kiem Lake. We listed three final names and conducted surveys with 500 guests. And finally, Genesis has the highest rating.
Why is This Icon for logo? (Crown of King Hung Vuong)
About the icon in Genesis’s logo, with many foreign customers will find it strange; however with the Vietnamese it is very familiar. That is the image of the ancient crown of King Hung Vuong, the first king to found Vietnam more than 4000 thousand years ago, the King of Kings. That is also the start of Viet country, the origin of Vietnam today. The crown represents the national origin, traditional culture, and also the elegance, luxurious of the imperial palace.
