Just a great experience

We (5) booked on their Red Dragon junk through our hotel in Hanoi.

The Red Dragon junks are smaller than their other junks with only 7 on board. Everything was great: the bus down and back was safely driven; the staff and crew were delightful, gracious and charming.

Our tour guide was Thinh who was fun and courteous. The activities: swimming off the beach and kayaking around an island and visit to a limestone cave made for an enjoyable afternoon. The food was superb. It was my wife's birthday a d they has a decorated cake with candles and the crew came up on deck and sang happy birthday. The next day"s trip being rowed around the floating fishing village was fun.

That is what we want!

We just spent a sweet holiday in Halong bay with Indochina Sails cruise.

This was also our 2nd anniversary so I needed a perfect and special place for us. It was useful to visit Trip Advisor because I found a long list of cruises instead of being lost with other online search engines. We decided to pick Indochina Sails cruise in the end after a variety of offers from the cruise tour company HalongLuxurytravel. It was a right decision because things turned to be so wonderful for us at the beginning of the trip.


The road from Hanoi to Halong was long but peaceful with the mountains, countryside landscapes and green fields all along the way. Our room on Indochina cruise was luxurious but friendly. The staff and the services are two-thumbs-up. We felt like staying in a second home. The trip was a great pleasure with the spectacular sights of Halong bay. We have known this place is being considered to be a world’s new wonder but didn’t know it was this beautiful. Thanks to Indochina Sails crews for a smooth and memorable anniversary and HalongLuxurytravel company for offering us the best price we could find.

Magical Halong Bay

Our destination may still be a few hours away but I’m already tingling with anticipation for a night on Vietnam’s mythical Halong Bay.
The karsts (limestone pillars) that jut out from the waters of the bay may date back nearly 500 million years, but the myth attached to them arose in the past two millennium. The Vietnamese believe a dragon and his brethren were sent to earth to aid the Vietnamese in repelling invaders from the north. As the dragons descended, they spit out jewels and jade which – upon hitting the water – turned into the rock formations so prevalent today.

It’s obvious that Halong Bay is one of Vietnam’s busiest tourist destinations from the moment we pull up to the port. The quays are a mess of tour groups, junks, trawlers and boat vendors, the beauty of the bay barely visible through the haze. But once on our ship, we glide away from the cacophony and out into the karsts dotted landscape.

Most boats follow a predictable circuit – a visit to a fishing village on stilts, a stop at Surprise Cave perched high above the water, and a chance to kayak the turquoise waters. Other boats are always near but, in one of those blesses cases of traveler’s blindness, I suddenly cease to see them. They become part of the scenery as I stare in wonder at the panorama from the mouth of LinkSurprise Cave; they become delicate silhouettes as the sun sinks behind the horizon, bathing us all in its fiery farewell. My kayak cuts through them as I paddle towards shore but I’m too entranced by the rest of the scene.


Cruising on Halong Bay

I’m lucky to spend the night on the bay, waking to the sunrise and the graceful movements of tai chi on the upper deck of our boat. As the sun climbs higher in the cloud-flecked sky, we leave the “crowds” behind and circle quiet karsts islands in a part of the bay seemingly untouched by day trippers. Eventually, our boat heads once again for shore and civilization and we brave the long dusty ride back to Hanoi. But that night and for many to come, I fall asleep imagining the roll of the sea as it caresses our ship in a starry bay.
