Indochina Sails Description
The newest deluxe junk of the fleet - the Indochina Sail - just start in early
April 2007. With well-appointed design and decor, the junk will together with
its twin sister bring guests excellent experience cruising the World Heritage
Discover the splendors of Halong Bay aboard the the Indochina Sail a wooden
junk that combines classic beauty with modern comfort. Measuring 40 meters in
length, this newly built, custom-designed yacht features three decks that house
an elegant restaurant, two bars, a small library, and a massage room—plus ten
luxurious sleeping cabins. With so much space, passengers can truly unwind and
enjoy the bay’s magnificent scenery.
While all those who visit Halong Bay are charmed by the archipelago’s beauty,
few visitors are aware that the three-thousand islands that dot this bay are
home to many rare plants, including species found nowhere else in the world. We
chose our boat’s name— the Indochina Sail —because, like the plant it was
named after, our junk is perfectly suited to this environment. With its golden
sails, polished woodwork and refined, Asian décor, the Indochina Sail offers
an unforgettable ambiance of relaxed elegance. Join us, and see Halong Bay in
Life on board
Measuring 40 meters long and 8,5 meters wide,
our custom-built wooden junk features three decks, all outfitted with elegant
Asian inspired decor. The lower deck is devoted to Passenger Cabins, with
sleeping space for 30 people. The Reception, Restaurant, the Indochina Sail
Bar, Gift Shop and Library are all located on the main deck. On the top deck
passengers will find the Sunset Bar and a spacious lounge area, perfect for our
morning Tai Chi classes, weekend BBQs and sunset cocktails.
Guests are welcome to make use of our binoculars, snorkeling equipment, and
top-of-the-line Canadian made Seaward kayaks.
While the view is undoubtedly the best feature of each of our ten guest cabins,
guests will also appreciate the rooms’ tasteful décor and furnishings. To
complement the bay’s natural beauty we have outfitted the cabins in natural
materials: wood floors covered with sedge mats; walls covered with woven bamboo
panels; and ceilings decorated with bamboo panels hand-painted with a ginger
motif. The standing shower, meanwhile, features mosaic tiles in Orchid flower
A pleasant ambiance, attentive staff and great views make our restaurant the
perfect place to sample the exotic delights of Vietnamese cuisine. Guests can
look forward to lavish international breakfast buffets, casual, sit-down lunches
of Vietnamese dishes, and formal dinners with delectable fusion cuisine. All
dishes are prepared to please both the eye and the palate. Special BBQ dinners
are served on the Sundeck on weekends, or upon a group’s request.

Scenic Halong Bay, with its
emerald seas, rests beautifully over the Red River Delta. This region, "the Bay
of the Descending Dragon", is dotted with more than 3,000 mountainous islands,
each with its own unique landscape. The islands are famous for their dolomite
and limestone rock formations, many of which have been given names. Natural
grottos, fjords, land tunnels and inlets are also common. During the Vietnam
War, numerous large ships sailed through the open waters of the bay and now an
excursion by junk, cruises or fishing boat gives you the memorable experience of
sailing past silent, sea-girt caves and around the spectacular formations,
tasting fresh and authentic Vietnamese cuisines, breathing cool breezing from
the Gulf of Tonkin and enjoying a romantic night with your sweet hearts under
the starry sky. That's all we can say how fantastic Halong is and how amazing
