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 had a 2 day trip in Halong Bay as part of a tour organised by Viantours. We didn't choose Indochina but are so pleased that we were booked with them. Everything about the cruise was perfect, right down to the friendly staff perfect food and really comfortable bedroom. I wish we had the chance of another nights stay but... More

Amazing time! The boat was beautifully maintained and very clean...the staff members were incredibly helpful and made our stay effortless. The cruise itself was the highlight of our tour of Vietnam...waking up in Halong Bay was unbelievable! Definitely a company dedicated to ensuring guests have a pleasurable and memorable trip!

A small group of us (4 couples) recently went on the 2 night cruise and couldn't have been happier. The staff were amazing - so friendly and David our captain was always there to ensure we had what we needed. The boat was well equipped and the rooms air conditioned and serviced. The boat was clean and very safety conscious.... More

Fantastic time although weather cancelled our first night on the boat. The crew led by "Dave" could not do enough for us. We were accommodated for the night at the Novatel. Picked up next day and along with 1 other couple spent the day on their day boat with about 8 crew looking after our every need. Spent that night... More

We booked our 2 night 3 day cruise through Best Price Vietnam online and choose to book the suite on the Valentine junk for our 25 th wedding anniversary. Our travel agent in NZ could not get us a suite on any junk with any company for less than twice the price we paid so our is definitely worth shopping... More

Halong bay is a must see when visiting Vietnam. It's an incredible sight and doing it in style on a cruise type ship is nice and relaxing. Not convinced that indochina is that much different then the other boats, but we had very little to complain about on our stay. One thing I would recommend, do the 2 night option!... More

After the hectic of Hanoi, we headed to halong bay for some r&r. Never a fan of the cruise, we were apprehensive about the tour. Especially the day before departure we were informed by the tour operator that we are being "upgraded"to another ship. Well, after a 4-hour shuttle ride from Hanoi to halong bay, we embarked onto a beautiful... More

We did a one night two day trip. All the arrangements were very efficient. The cabin was very comfortable and clean and the food was great. I recommend taking the kayaking option when you visit the fishing village as its much more fun.
