Indochina Sails in HalongIndochina Sails boats, or Junks, are built in Vietnam, utilizing local materials and the handiwork of skilled shipbuilders, craftsmen and artists. As in the days of old they are built entirely of wood. The wood featured in the interiors is called “go huong”, which translates as aromatic wood, it is a highly durable and beautifully grained wood which adds to the rich and warm character of the boats.

Each of our boats features spacious, well-appointed cabins and suites with large ensuite marble bathrooms, a large sundeck with comfortable lounging furniture and an elegant dining room and bar. We have designed and fitted our boats to international standards while maintaining traditional Chinese Junk styling, creating the perfect balance of modern comforts and nostalgic ambiance.

Activities

Our itineraries are designed to maximize your holiday experience and enjoyment; included are daytime excursions to the largest floating fishing village on the bay and to an island featuring swimming and a climb to the best panoramic view of the bay. We offer kayaking through caves into peaceful lakes surrounded by limestone mountains. We also tour one of the bay’s largest and most spectacular indoor caves, “Sung Sot” or “Surprise Cave”.

Evening activities include an assortment of board games and film entertainment, and fishing for squid from the boat with our crew. We also offer, in squid season, an evening excursion to a nearby squid fishing boat for an up-close look at the local fishermen plying the waters of the bay for squid and other fish.

We offer kayaking in all of our itineraries for a unique opportunity to see some of Halong Bay’s most interesting scenery while being as close to the sea as possible. Our kayaking excursions incorporate paddling through amazing caves and into placid and peaceful lagoons bringing you as close to the wildlife of Halong Bay as possible. Sightings of monkeys and bats are often part of the excursions.
Onboard massage services are available as well to enhance your cruise. Each morning we offer our guests a unique start to their day; Tai Chi on the sundeck . They may join our Tai Chi masters for an introduction to this ancient form of meditative exercise. By imitating the movements of the instructor one will benefit externally and internally, physically and mentally, enjoying a balance and unity of the outer and inner self.
