Tung Sau Pearl Farm

Cultivating pearls has been a tradition in Halong Bay, but sharing the process of pearl making with tourists has only been a relatively recent addition to cruising itineraries. The Tung Sau Pearl Farm, which uses the Mikimoto technique to cultivate pearls, takes visitors through the process of creating pearls in a short, but informative tour.
A tender from the ship transports visitors to Tung Sau Pearl Farm. When disembarking, visitors are given an overview of the pearl-making process, as well as being introduced to the types of oysters and pearls - including colours and shapes- that can be cultivated.
A short walk across the jetty and oysters in their cages - some as small as scallops, others bigger than a hand depending on their age - are lifted from the calm, jade water of Halong Bay.
Another short walk, and tourists are given a demonstration into how pearls are created. An artisan opens the oyster’s shell, put the seed inside skillfully and closes the shell within a minute. Visitors are ushered to the harvesting area where an oyster is opened, which may or may not contain a pearl. Mother Nature is capricious, and there are any number of reasons as to why the oyster doesn’t always create a pearl.
The Tung Sau Pearl Farm also has an extensive range of pearl jewelry ready for purchase after the tour. What better souvenir of your trip to Halong Bay than a beautiful pearl pendant or exquisite pair of earrings?
