Description: What better way to enjoy the spectacular scenery of this UNESCO World...
What better way to enjoy the spectacular scenery of this UNESCO World Heritage Site than on board an Indochina Sails or Valentine Junk! With over a decade of hosting international guests on the tranquil waters of Halong Bay, Indochina Sails has set the standard for luxury cruising. The first company to offer overnight cruises on the bay, Indochina Sails is now widely known as the number one choice for discerning travelers, operating a fleet of six newly built wooden junks designed in time-honored traditional style, with contemporary and luxurious cabins and facilities. Our boats feature spacious, well-appointed cabins and suites with large en-suite bathrooms, large sundecks with comfortable lounging furniture and elegant dining rooms and bars. We have designed and fitted our boats to international standards while maintaining traditional styling, creating the perfect balance of modern comforts and nostalgic ambiance.

We booked for an overnight stay in Ha Long Bay. The experience was more than expected. A fabulous cabin including a spa bath in our ensuite. The food was delicious, and the staff very attentive. Unfortunately we had some rain, but it didn't stop us from a very enjoyable cruise.

We booked a two night/three day cruise. Unfortunately due to the weather we weren't able to make our cruise even though we waited for four days. We dealt with a lady called Ho Lan and she couldn't have been more helpful and I couldn't praise her enough. We didn't have our phones in Hanoi so we did most things by... More

We are a family of 6 and we are very glad that HaLong Bay was our last tour for a month-long vacation in Vietnam. We did the 2-night tour and we HIGHLY recommend it. We were on the Indochina Sails #3. Our rooms (on the upper level) were spacious and just absolutely beautiful. I am vegetarian and the food for... More

We booked this 3 day-2 night cruise, as it is the best reviewed one, but the most expensive as well. The huts were clean and there was a good program, tai chi, cooking demonstrations, kayaking, squid fishing, in which we all participated and what we enjoyed a lot. What we would have expected was a guide that could explain us... More

We had a wonderful time on our Halong Bay trip. Booked through our hotel (the excellent Hanoi Elegance Diamond) everything from pick up to drop off was first class. We stayed one night on the ship which we thought was just right for us. On arrival at the port we were given refreshments and cold towels in the waiting lounge... More

If we had known how beautiful and relaxing our stay on the ship would be, we would have booked for at least 2 or even 3 nights. Ha Long Bay is awesome and beyond description although we were a bit unlucky with the weather as it was a bit of a drizzle. Our tai-chi classes were held indoors due to... More

Wow. I'm not sure how to explain this wonderful experience. We spent 2 days 1 night on the Indochina Premium boat. Rooms were beautiful, food was amazing and plentiful, service was fantastic. Views were breathtaking. Would definitely do it all again.
