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.

Perfect relaxing break from the madness of the Hanoi/HCMC. Wonderful staff, great boat and lovely food/drink. Only 12 on board so at times had the whole top deck to ourselves! One of the highlights was sea kayaking around the islands - really breathtaking! Would really recommend Indochina sails to anyone thinking of exploring Halong Bay.

We stayed for three days and two nights in Ha Long Bay with Indochina and would absolutely recommend this cruise! The scenery was stunning throughout the day and night and the activities organised by the tour operator were plentiful. Our tour guide Annie was fantastic and was very friendly and chatty towards everyone. The food and drinks on the boat... More

We were booked on an over night cruise around Ha Long Bay as part of our package trip which included stop overs in Hanoi, Siem Reap Cambodia and Hoi An Vietnam. We were offered an up grade at the last minute to the Valentine which we accepted, although we did not really know what to expect. As we approached the... More

My daughter and I were traveling together. Halongsapa Tours recommended this cruise. The guide, Happy Buddha, set the perfect time. We did a two day one night tour. Day 1- lunch, kayaking, happy hour, dinner, games or show or squid fishing, another happy hour. Day 2 - tai chi, TitopIsland for hike and view, brunch and then back to Hanoi.... More

My wife and I booked a two-night cruise on one of Indochina Sails' junk boats and were not disappointed. I think most people generally take one-night cruises, but we were very glad to have two nights on Ha Long Bay. The boat could have slept at least 30 or 35 passengers, and yet there were only 10 other people on... More

Wasn't expecting to have such an amazing time! The cabins were quaint and clean. The food was amazing - they happily accommodated my vegetarian diet. The views were incredible (of course!). We decides to kayak which was tough but a great workout. Made us feel as we deserved the two happy hours - yes, multiple by one, get one happy... More

Beautiful boat and scenery we did the 2 day, 1night cruise. The food was really good, we had let them know a few days beforehand that I was vegetarian and they catered for me really well -including providing separate dishes for the evening buffet. We would have preferred the buffet for lunch and the five course meal at dinner however... More

Booked for an overnight cruise. Scenery is outstanding. Three high standard meals are served on the trip and is more than enough to keep you going. We did the boat trip to a remote fishing village and the hike up Tip Top mountain. Defiantly a must do in Vietnam. A big thank you to David, Annie and the crew for... More
