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.

Indochina were fantastic. We had a group of 12. They picked us up from the airport and took us to our hotel in hanoi. The overnight cruise was outstanding, there was only one other Couple so it felt like a private cruise, the rooms were spacious and luxurious, the service excellent and food was great. Drinks were cheap and the... More

I cannot fault our Halong Bay cruise experience with Indochina Sails. Everything was excellent. The boat is beautiful inside and very luxurious. The quality of the bedroom and bathrooms was worth paying slightly more for and the food on board was out of this world, it felt like being in a luxury hotel and not on a boat! I would... More

This company has schooled their staff in how to be great servers. We couldn't have asked for better service. Even when my mother in law fell and they did everything in their power to make her comfortable. Highly recommend this trip. Only suggestion is if you are traveling with kids try to coordinate with another family. Not a lot of... More

After a 3 ½ hour trip from Hanoi we were tired but really looking forward to the cruise! Even though there was a distinct possibility that the over night stay would be cancelled because of wind we still sailed on time. We were treated to the best lunch and drinks and then sailed into the bay. It was cold compared... More

I highly recommend Indochina Sails for your trip to Ha Long Bay! The boat is luxurious and well-maintained and the staff is friendly and attentive. The food is decent and plentiful, and the cocktails were pretty good. Our bed was sooo comfortable, which can be extremely hard to find in Vietnam. We did the one night tour, but I almost... More

Our UK agent booked the tour on our behalf and they couldn't have picked a better company. We booked the one night 2 day sail and for me it was the highlight of our visit to Vietnam. Everything was first class from the 7 course lunch shortly after our arrival to the visit to the people who live in boats... More

We did the overnight cruise & it is was pure luxury! Everything from the boat, the rooms, the service & the food is decadent! It is such an amazingly magical place & we were so pleased to explore it on this unbelievable junk boat! You get what you pay for & this is absolutely worth the extra money!

We have just arrived back in Hanoi after our two day Halong cruise on the Valentine vessel. We loved being on a smaller boat of only five cabins. We had the suite room which was incredibly spacious and comfortable - the best nights sleep we have had in Vietnam so far! The staff are fantastic ( thank you Hieu!), the... More

I felt really spoiled during this two nights stay on Indochina Sails. The room was very comfortable and clean; food was excellent, staff more than preventing and smiling, ready to help with anything. There was good equilibrium between Ha Long Bay attractions visiting and relaxation and I enjoyed every minute of this trip. Great services and excellent conditions, I highly... More
