With thousands of limestone mountains and cliffs jutting from its calm waters, Halong Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders.

The Indochina Sails, traditional junks built of aromatic wood with modern facilities and first class service are the perfect vessels for exploring this magnificent seascape. Indochina Sails is a brand of Huong Hai Group, one of the top tourism services companies in Vietnam. Service, quality and luxury are the hallmarks of Indochina Sails, which epitomizes style, flair, wonderful comfort and the latest modern amenities. Moreover, the experienced and highly motivated crews always look forward to making any trip an impeccable and unforgettable experience.

Backed by more than 15 years’ experience hosting international guests on the tranquil waters of Halong Bay, Indochina Sails has set a new standard for luxury cruising. The first company to offer overnight cruises on the bay, Indochina Sails is now widely known as the number one choice for discerning travelers, operating a fleet of six newly built wooden junks designed in time-honored traditional style, with contemporary and luxurious cabins and facilities.

The boats feature spacious, well-appointed cabins and suites with large en-suite bathrooms, large sundecks with comfortable lounging furniture and elegant dining rooms and bars. Indochina Sails have designed and fitted the boats to international standards while maintaining traditional styling, creating the perfect balance of modern comforts and nostalgic ambiance.

Indochina Sails boats are built in Vietnam, utilizing local materials and the handiwork of skilled craftsmen and artists. The wood featured in the interiors is called Go Huong, translated as “aromatic wood”, and is a highly durable and beautifully grained timber which adds to the rich and warm character of the boats.

The newest boats, the Valentine Premium and Indochina Sails Premium, also feature ceramic artworks handcrafted in Bat Trang, well known as home to the country’s most talented ceramic craftsmen. All of the boats are decorated with silk from Van Phuc, the “Silk Village”.

Whichever of the boats to be sailed on, Indochina Sails is able to make a journey special right from the start by providing its very own private pier to embark on.

Keeping a mindset of offering not only a soothing but also stimulating experiences that will be remembered and cherished, the team is dedicated to providing the very best on offer on magnificent Halong Bay.

Indochina Sails itineraries are designed to maximize the holiday experience and enjoyment; included are daytime excursions to the largest floating fishing village on the bay and to an island featuring a swimming beach and a climb to the best panoramic view of the bay. Indochina Sails offer kayaking through caves into peaceful lakes surrounded by limestone mountains.

They 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. Indochina Sails 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.
