Owner description: 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 spent 2 nights on the Valentine boat. This boat is smaller than many of the others and had only 5 rooms. The rooms are very comfortable with air-conditioning and en-suite facilities. The food was excellent but more than we needed. The crew were very attentive and friendly. We had a day trip to view some caves, which were spectacular,... More

A very well ran tour, we couldn't ask for more, friendly staff, great bar selection, highly relaxing, highlights were going to the fishing village by kayak and climbing to the temple on the island, oh and having an Armagnac while watching the other boats at night wasn't bad either!

My wife and I did a 3 day two night cruise on an indoctrination sails junk in late August. The staff of the boat may be the friendliest group of people I ever met. David and Annie (English names) were our hosts and bent over backwards to make sure everything went well. First of all, ha long bay is amazing.... More

We were looking for a smaller boat with comfortable rooms and top quality food for this once in a lifetime trip and Indochina Sails ticked all the boxes. There are only... More

This review relates to the two day cruise, which we did on one of the 15 berth boats. These run to a set route but you are made to feel as if the whole thing has been customer made for your benefit. The staff are very attentive (well done Annie!) and the set excursions are interesting without being overbearing. The... More

I was pleasantly surprised at how very comfortable this overnight boat trip was.The cabins were very comfortable with ensuite bathrooms and lying in bed looking out at the bay was a treat. We only had about half the number of tourists on our trip so plenty of attention and lots of excellent food.I think it would be great to have... More
