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.

Halong Bay is certain to be among the top experiences on anyone's trip to Vietnam. We booked 2 nights on one of the Indochina Sails boats and it turned out to be the largest one. The staterooms are small but very adequate. Food was excellent for all meals. There is plenty of space either in the enclosed salon with large... More

The sea tour with Indochina Sails was special and was one of the most amazing experiences of our trip through Vietnam. This area is a wonder and was perfect to have this been done with this company with very experienced and lovely people. The two very nice young ladies who were the guides were always available for questions and took... More

We booked the 3d/2n tour through an agent based on his recommendation and the amazing pictures / reviews online. Unfortunately our experience compared very poorly to our expectations. To begin with the weather was very cloudy and, to be fair, this wasn't something the tour operator could control. However they did nothing to compensate for it. For example, they did... More

We spent two weeks in Vietnam for our Honeymoon and Ha Long Bay was the last leg of our trip. Indochina tours picked us up from our Hotel in Hanoi and we took the 3 1/2 hour trip to Ha Long Bay and were taken in by the sights upon arrival. We set sail and were immediately fed lunch while... More

We started our stay in Vietnam with two day cruise to Ha Long Bay. It was perfect! The crew was extremely friendly and very helpful. We had a perfect balance between activities and relax time. All was great, the food, the service, the sights, the cabins etc. We would love to come back, maybe even for a longer cruise too!

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
