"Extremely helpful and attentive, great service!"

The boat is beautiful and small with few passengers.
The outside of the boat could be repainted. No need for the water puppet show on the way back, better to go back directly to Hanoi.

had the best price for the Ha Long Bay cruise with Indochina Junk, and, after we booked Ha Long Bay with them, decided to ask them if they could help us with the other bookings. This is how a very happy relationship started.

everything was above expectation.
-We had a great time. Tom was a great guide!
-Staff was wonderful and food was amazing!
-Rooms were great and staff was very accommodating by fixing air con and separating beds when asked (mom's room)

-Some of the info talks by guide could have been along with food and not after as we were ready to go up to breezy top floor after meals to cool off ;)
would have liked more time for beach; less talking time

My partner and I had a wonderful time. The cruise was a great highlight to our 3 week Asia trip. I also wanted to give a big special thank you for Mr. Ha (our tour guide). He was professional, knowledge, friendly and a great delight to have on board to guide us. I would recommend this trip to anyone… More

Excellent food, very friendly and helpful staff, clean boat and cabins, wonderful itinerary, excellent choice of places to visit and go in the bay.

Very small cabin - better designed furniture would have meant we could store more of our stuff - there really wasn't any room to put anything in the bedside cabinet due to the design of it. There was no where to put our suitcases - if the beds were a bit higher, we could have stored them under the bed,… More

Normally, the distance from Hanoi to Halong Bay is about 170 km. Shuttle Bus takes you around 3.5 hours, included haft-hour for break time from Hanoi to Halong Bay. If you go by private car, it takes around 3 hours.

On the other hand, there is another route which only takes you about 2.5 hours for travelling to Halong Bay. You can hire a car or buy a ticket of a VIP bus to travel from Hanoi city centre to Halong Bay through the new Hanoi - Hai Phong highway, which shortens the distance between Hanoi - Halong to about more than 150km.

However, there will be a fee for the new highway which is about 6.5 USD/turn/car and that is the reason why the price for transportation through this new route is a little bit higher than the old one.

Activities you can take part in during within a Cruise program is: Movie Night, Board Games, visiting Floating village, go fishing, cooking class, kayaking or swimming, biking, climbing… It depends on each cruise and the length of Cruise program as 02 days or 03 days. Please see more details in cruise itineraries.
Cruise itinerary and schedule are subject to change upon weather and operations conditions.
Halong Bay is a very suitable place for honeymoon, wedding anniversary or birthday vacation. Depend on your budget, you can join a sharing cruise or take a private cruise. But all our cruise partners have activities to celebrate for your special occasions such as decorating your bed with rose petals in a heart shape, giving chocolate or birthday cake...
