Trip totally exceeded expectations - the boat was great and the double room we had was excellent. The food was always good and the scenery breath taking. The thing that made the trip was Annie and the other staff - they couldn't do enough to ensure all guests were happy. Couldn't recommend highly enough. A must do if you visit... More

We sailed on the Valentine which caters for a maximum of 8 persons . We opted for safety and limited numbers over price. It was a whopping £400 for one night , leaving the bay around 12.30 and dropping us back the next day around 10.30. The bay itself is beautiful . The boat is magnificent; the food awesome and...

We spent a night sailing around Halong Bay on the Indochina Sails Junk boat. It was absolutely fantastic and well worth doing. We wish we had done 2 nights. Everything is well organised. Staff are wonderful and nothing is too much trouble. They make you feel very relaxed and welcome. We thought it was excellent because they don't have more... More

Afternoon spent cruising Halong Bay, lunch on board then stopped off at a fishing village where locals row you around the bay. Pre dinner drinks on board the ship, followed... More

My family spent two wonderful two days in Halong Bay on a boat called Indochina Sails. We booked through the agency Asia 365 and they told us that a very special trip on a Junk in Halong Bay would be one of the highlights. We were not dissapointed! All four of us loved the astonishing landscape, the impressive wooden junk... More

However Hiu the tour guide made us feel welcome with a cup of tea and then sorted out the transport problem with our tour... More
