Our thoughts

The Ginger Junk is one of the best ways to explore the delights of Halong Bay, with its spectacular scenery, islands and extraordinary caves. You can keep your exploration simple and opt for a day trip, or you can take your time and embark on a two or three day cruise. Disembark along the way to explore the flora and fauna and the caves, as well as to swim and snorkel. The traditional Junk design sailing under its famous ginger sails adds to the unique flavour of Vietnam.
