The Red DragonNamed and designed after an authentic Chinese junk, the original Red Dragon plied the rivers, seas and harbours of the Far East, from Singapore to northern China.Our Red Dragon is complete with five deluxe cabins and designed to resonate with superior class and grandeur. Larger than The Prince and Princess it is still small enough to get up close to the natural wonders, pocket lagoons and small fishing communities of Halong and Bai Tu Long bays.

We did not have a great experience on a day trip from Hanoi. The tour guide we had on the way there spoke very little English (definitely not "fluent"). The bus was completely fully and being 6ft (my partner close to 6ft) we were crammed at the back of the bus. We asked if we could move forward to sit... More

Really helpful team. I tried to book as they had had great reviews but unfortunately the trip I wanted to go on was fully booked (2 days / 1 night) so instead they gave me several other options and arranged a private transfer for me...all at a very reasonable prices...much lower than was advertised on the trip I actually went...

This part of Ha Long Bay is far less crowded. We visited on board of Red Dragon / Indochina Junk. Excellent for snorkling and kayaking.

We took their overnight cruise in Bai Tu Long Bay in November. The scenery is fantastic and the kayaking and time at the beach added to the great experience. It certainly helps that only this company is allowed to use this part of the bay. On board everything is taking care of. The food shows a lot of variety, but... More

We went on the overnight cruise in mid December. The food was excellent, the tour guide was very good and the itinerary was exciting as it included kayaking and trips to a local floating village and a pearl farm. This boat accommodates 10 people and takes a route which is not too crowded. The owners - Indo China Junk -... More

Booked the 1 night 2 day cruise, staff excellent,, tour guide was very good. Food on board was excellent and it was a nice way to meet different people. Scenery is unbelievable and the visit to fishing village and pearl farm were just as good. The pearl farm is an ideal place to buy a present as prices are reasonable,... More

I booked a one night/2 day cruise with Indochina junk in November 2014. Being in Hanoi for work, I wanted to use the opportunity to explore Halong bay. Travelling alone, I initially booked the Dragon Legend because it was bigger. I got 'upgraded' to the Red Dragon cruise and I'm still thankful for that, as I think this is one... More

We didnt know what to expect as we booked the overnight on Red Dragon long before leaving the UK, so glad we did, what tremendous service, food and hospitality we received. There were 10 on our boat, all from different ways of life and continents never mind countries so we had plenty to talk about over lunch dinner and brunch... More

What a fantastic night and day we had on this tour. Picked up in a luxury van and it really was luxury. 4 other people were on board with the 3 in our group. We had a smaller car to return us to the airport as we were then travelling to Hoi An! BUT the service, food, staff, beds, bathroom... More
