Tu Long Bay

Tu Long Bay

A good alternative to Ha Long Bay

Bai Tu Long Bay is every bit as beautiful as its famous neighbor – Ha Long Bay. In some ways, it’s actually more stunning since it’s only in its initial stages as a destination for travelers. The bay and its islands are still unpolluted and relatively undeveloped. For Western travelers, it’s a laid-back alternative to the touristy bustle of Halong Bay. The area immediately northeast of Halong Bay is part of Bai Tu Long National Park. In this big area, visitors can find pristine natural landscapes. Even now, Bai Tu Long remains an extensive unexplored area. Bai Tu Long has many attractions to visit: Cong Do area, Vung Vieng fishing village, Thien Canh Son cave and Tra Gioi beach. There are also some populated islands; Quan Lan, Ngoc Vung, Cong Dong, and Cong Tay with many beautiful beaches. In addition, Bai Tu Long Bay National Park is rich in biological diversity, home to much different flora and fauna.

Private junk cruise

The L’Amour
1-CABIN ROMANTIC ELEGANCE

Our L’Amour Junk is designed in the style of the traditional sailing boats and was the first small deluxe one-cabin junk in Halong Bay. It is an ideal option for a couple on a romantic trip.

She is designed with sophistication and a meticulous attention to every single detail, for our guests’ enjoyment, especially their viewing pleasure. During her construction, every effort was made to enhance our customer’s holiday experience. The ensuite room has a big sea view window and the outside dining area is a perfect place to observe the natural landscape while cruising.

From the moment you step aboard and check into your cabin, to when you are relaxing on the sun deck, you are surrounded by handcrafted teak and oak furnishings. You can relax in comfort on our traditional boat and will receive a warm welcome from our crew while enjoying many interesting activities.

After boarding the L’Amour Junk, you are given the maximum of privacy during your trip. Our staffs are on call when you need them or leave you to enjoy the bay. The food service during this trip is also a highlight of the whole experience.

The L’Amour is perfect for either a romantic getaway, or to celebrate a special occasion.

The Prince
2-3-4 CABINS FAMILY ADVENTURE

The Prince Junk was designed after the traditional fishing boats of Halong Bay, only on a slightly smaller scale with either 2 or 4 cabins. In our fleet, we have 4 Prince Junks:

  • Prince I has 2 cabins, perfectly suitable for a family including parents and children enjoying the magic of Halong Bay together.
  • Prince II and III have similar designs and service facilities to accommodate a group of up to 8 persons, or couples sharing trips.
  • Prince IV with 3 cabins provides a comfortable stay for charter groups, a family, or couples sharing the boat (Prince IV Junk has been renamed Dragon Bay cruise since 2017).

Like all of our boats, Prince Junk is designed with sophistication and a meticulous attention to detail for our guests’ enjoyment. It features 2 decks with dining areas inside and outside, and traditionally decorated cabins with a sea view window, where you can relax and admire the marvelous view. Our crew, with their warmest hospitality, enhances your cruise.

From the time you step aboard, to the time you check into your cabin, or when you are relaxing on the sun desk, you are surrounded by teak and oak paneling and furniture, all constructed by our skilled craftsmen. This makes the Prince, together with our L’Amour Junk, the outstanding members of our Royal family.

The Prince Junk is the perfect choice for families, couples or small groups.

Red Dragon
5-CABIN AUTHENTIC CHARM

Named and designed after an authentic Chinese junk, the original Red Dragon Junk plied the rivers, seas and harbors of the Far East, from Singapore to northern China. Red Dragon Junk is ready to cruise the bay to celebrate your special event.

Our Red Dragon is complete with 5 deluxe cabins and 2 decks, which resonate with superior class and grandeur. Although it is larger than the Prince and L’Amour Junks, it is still small enough for an intimate view of the natural wonders, pocket lagoons and small fishing communities of Bai Tu Long Bay, cruising off the beaten track. The charming Red Dragon Junk is an excellent companion to explore the natural beauty while enjoying the warm welcome from our well trained staff.

As soon as you board the Red Dragon, you will be surrounded by richly detailed woodwork handmade by Vietnamese artisans. Whether you are relaxing in the comfort of your own cabin, lounging on the spacious sun deck, or dining in the cozy restaurant, you will feel like royalty.

This masterpiece is a wonderful option for those who need a little more space for a small group cruise of up to 11 people.

The Treasure is a one of a kind vessel in the whole Halong archipelago. Based on a solid structure and re-designed in a wooden junk style. It is stable, able to navigate in any seabed of the region and can easily face the rough if needed.

On all of its itineraries, the Treasure offers some kayaking. Real expeditions to lagoons, creeks and floating houses, around the huge standing karsts formations, always away from any other boat. We use Necky kayaks, high quality equipment, imported from Canada and carefully maintained.

To entertain your cruise, vegetable carving and cocktails classes are available. Sometimes upon request as it depends on the number of people on board. Nice wooden board games are also available.

The Treasure features a very large sundeck that you may enjoy anytime of the day. With a cup of coffee witnessing the transient serenity of the bay early morning; relaxing in the sun with a privileged view at the limestone labyrinth; celebrating with a drink this once of a lifetime moment when the moon rises over the karsts.

Food and Beverages

The Treasure offers a long drink list featuring softs, beers, spirits, wines, cocktails, mocktails, smoothies… to slake your thirst and set the aperitif up or accompany a romantic dinner.

Our chef and his team are devoted to offering you some of the most reputed cuisine of the region. The selection is wide and ingredients always local and fresh.
