The Red DragonNamed and designed after an authentic Chinese junk, the original Red Dragon plied the rivers, seas and harbours of the Far East, from Singapore to northern China.Our Red Dragon is complete with five deluxe cabins and designed to resonate with superior class and grandeur. Larger than The Prince and Princess it is still small enough to get up close to the natural wonders, pocket lagoons and small fishing communities of Halong and Bai Tu Long bays.

Avoid this at all costs. Trip got off to a terrible start when the driver of the mini van barked at me for daring to move one of my legs to rest in between the driver and passenger seat (there was a big gap). I was not allowed to sit in the front of the van, despite the seats being... More

We paid $100 for a day trip (2 people) to Halong Bay. Sadly we didn't have time for a longer stay, but we wanted to still go so we booked a day trip from Hanoi. We were collected in an air conditioned mini-van. We were the last people to be collected so had to sit right at the back. My... More

Due to the exclusivity bit, and the need to be away from crowd we chose to sail on the Red Dragon Junk (though our original choices were Prince I / II / III which were already booked but thank God we chose this one) through Bai Tu Long Bay as against Ha Long Bay....and the least we can say is...

Even though the trip from Hanoi was quite long, it was comfortable in the air conditioned mini van. On the way there, we didn't mind the stopover at the shopping centre/disabled workshop, but no-one told us about it, we just didn't appreciate having to do it again on the way back! The cruise itself was delightful and with only 11... More

We stayed 2 night/3day. What a Fantastic trip. Excellent food and attentive staff and tour guide. Six in our group and 3 others, pleasantly private. Majestic scenery and one of the many highlights of our trip. Well worth it!!

We enjoyed the Red Dragon. Our room was clean and comfortable. The cruising was beautiful and the beach break with swimming and kayaking was fun. The boat held 10 people and we lucked out with our group, an Ozzie family, a British couple, and a Kiwi couple, great fun! The food was good, with imaginative carvings. We took the 2... More

As for the Halong Bay tour we had a good time and I would recommend it. Overall a nice tour in need of improvement. The pick up was prompt and even a bit early. A very pleasant ride in a mini van. I don't have a problem with the bathroom break at a shopping outlet. Maybe on the way back... More

We were very happy with our 2 day/1 night Red Junk Cruise. The scenery was beautiful, and the short kayaking, swimming, floating village and pearl farm visits were very enjoyable and relaxing despite the tight timetable. The cruise was extremely well organised, the boat was clean and comfortable, as were the small cabins with ensuites.The guide and crew were very... More

Escaping busy Hanoi for a night on the Red Dragon Junk was wonderful. Great food, good company of new friends, accommodating crew when the kids wanted an early morning swim and to try their hand at físhing.
