Take a three-day cruise onboard the Prince Junk in the World Heritage site of Halong Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay. Stay in a deluxe cabin, enjoy delicious Vietnamese food and have time to explore beaches, lagoons and caves. You will be looked after by a friendly, knowledgeable English-speaking guide, and transfers from Hanoi are included.
A great way to see spectacular Halong Bay is a slow cruise through the seemingly never-ending
bay of islands. Lay in the sun, enjoy a selection of the freshest seafood, and take photograph after photograph. On the traditional Prince junk, the aim is to get off the beaten track while maintaining a leisurely pace. The size of the new vessel allows passengers to get much closer to Halong Bay’s natural wonders, such as its pocket lagoons, and its small fishing communities.
After a drive through paddy fields arrive at beautiful Halong Bay for embarkation onto the Prince Junk. The boat is beautifully designed in the style of traditional fishing ships used in South East Asia over the centuries. After a welcome refreshment on board and a tour of the dark-red interior, lunch is served. The junk sets sail through the curiously named islets of the bay, past a film studio with surely the best location in the world, and on to Cong Dam. Delicious food, comfortable cosy cabins and magnificent scenery wil make this a cruise unlike any other.
If you are keen to experience a beautiful, tranquil part of Vietnam and enjoy messing about on the water this is certainly the trip for you. It is also a great trip for photographers who will be able to take some stunning shots of the evocative red-fan sails of the junks on the bay, particularly in the dawn and sunset. A great place to come for a honeymoon, if you fancy something a little different. Nature lovers will enjoy the astonishing environment of the bay, with its green limestone karsts, hidden cave systems and its biodiverse waterworld. It is hard to think who would not appreciate a few days spent in this peaceful corner of Vietnam.
The junk takes up to 8 people and normally will not set sail with less than 4. If you take a cruise on the bay it is good practice to learn from the crew about the hazards facing the region, such as littering and pollution, and the projects being set up to counter this kind of activity.
