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 chose the 2 night 3 day deluxe (with balcony) trip to Halong bay and had a great time. I would recommend the extended trip as the first and last day of both trips are very short days on the boat. You really need the full middle day to relax and enjoy it. The rooms on the boat exceeded my... More

Dear Romina, Thank you very much for the concern of Indochina Sails - Halong Bay. Our boats can cater and serve the children/toddlers. In fact, your 2.5 year-old can share your cabin. Would you mind advise me your email address ? then I will send cruise details. All best regards. Lan Phuong (Mrs) More

This boat is fantastic! I can not fault the junk itself, definitely best of them all. Our room and bathroom was fabulous, large and clean. I would definitely recommend it and I am so thankful I booked 2 nights! One night is just not enough!. It is a great get away, something different, halong bay itself is beautiful.

Had a really good visit of Halong bay with Indochina Sails. I had the 2D/1N superior room (as they call it) and compared to my humble expectation it turned out very good with a jacuzzi, big bed and even a little balcony by the side of room. My special request for veggie food was catered to extremely well (to the... More

A great way to experience Halong Bay. Exceptional service as has come to be expected in Vietnam. Great food and cocktails, plenty of time to chill. Only complaint would be not enough time for swimming, which when hot is all you want to do! Thumbs up!

We took a 1 night, 2 day cruise with Indochina Sails around Halong Bay. The experience was one of our best throughout our entire time in Vietnam. We were picked up from our hotel in Hanoi and then driven to the Bay. It was well organized. The guide spoke fantastic English and was very entertaining with a great personality (Carrie).... More

Booked our tour through handspan. The tour was well organised and we felt that everything was taken care of. The tour keeps strictly to time with scheduled meals, happy hours, kayak trips, swims etc. they're all great fun and well serviced but it can feel a little too structured. The food was fine, the rooms were small but lovely and... More

Great boats and totally surprised with the rooms. They are bigger than I expected, clean, have everything you need and large windows to see the views. Finally the bathroom is great. Did the two day, one night trip and wish we'd gone for the extra day/night. Food is excellent and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. Would certainly... More

This is a wonderful boat for the Halong bay cruise. We took the 2 day one night cruise and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. The rooms were pretty spacious compared to other boats. So were the bathrooms. We had a huge deck to laze around. Halong bay cruise is a must do when in Hanoi. The visit to Titop island provided spectacular... More

We enjoyed our one day cruise in Halong Bay. The weather was nice, food and service were great and we enjoyed visiting Tip Top Mountain for the great panoramic view of bay. We also enjoyed the visit to the cave. The boat was nice but some rooms on the ship are a bit small and cramped.
