DRAGONS PEARL JUNK

Tour schedule :
Tour code :

A UNESCO world heritage site and truly a natural wonder, Halong Bay is made up of over 3000 limestone karsts that soar skyward out of calm emerald waters.Dragon's Pearl Junk is designed after the Chinese sailing Junks of old, to give you a panoramic view of the limestone karsts towering from the emerald waters of Halong Bay. Dragon's pearl is fully equipped with all the necessary equipment to meet today's safety standards. Domestic and international visitors have to-date only discovered about a quarter of the total area of World Natural Heritage Halong Bay. Three-quarters of the remaining unexplored area is in Bai Tu Long Bay.

In order to enable visitors to explore the magnificent, primitive and fresh beauty of Bai Tu Long Bay, together with our professional staff, Indochina Junk has spent many years researching the design for the most luxurious boats. Visitors will have a wonderful experience – kayaking, fishing, talking with local people in order to discover their culture and the life of people living on fishing villages, how to protect the environment or enjoy luxurious dinners inside a cave or on the beach.
Since its establishment Indochina Junk, has identified and developed a sustainable business associated with environment protection, to help fishermen who live in Halong Bay. In coordination with the Halong Bay Management Board, we have developed the program ‘For a Green Halong Bay’. Supported by the government and residents, this program is appreciated by visitors to the bay. It has two projects – the collection and treatment of waste in Bai Tu Long Bay and mangrove reforestation, and the building of cultural houses and schools in fishing villages.
The Dragon’s Pearl
The newest and the largest of the Indochina Junk family, the three Dragon’s Pearl are modelled on the traditional Chinese junks that used to sail these waters.
Whether you are dinning in the restaurant, lounging on one of the two sundecks or relaxing in the comfort of your cabin, you will be surrounded by the handcrafted teak and oak that make the Dragon’s Pearl wonderful sailing vessels.
This classic junk is ideal for parties for larger groups (up to 20 people) or even incentive groups. Alternatively book a berth and get to meet new friends as you cruise the bay.

- Kayaking
Kayaking is the best way to explore the breathtaking beauty of Halong. Paddle through islets; visit hidden caves, lagoons, unspoiled beaches and floating fishing villages; and talk with local fishermen.
Thanks to the bay’s thousands of islands the conditions for sea kayaking are ideal – the water is calm, the current is fine and the wind is not too strong.
   
- Beach BBQ
After some enjoyable kayaking, there is no better way of treating yourself than with a private seafood barbecue on an unspoilt beach.
Within minutes a quiet beach is transformed into a romantic spot with beautiful umbrellas providing shade and an elegant dinning table right on the beach. Our crew will invite you for a BBQ lunch on the beach – as if it were a wonderful gift granted by a mermaid. Imagine for a moment that you are the only people on earth enjoying a fabulous meal under the clear blue sky on your own private beach.
Start with a glass of wine and proceed to enjoy an array of succulent, grilled seafood. The melodious music of the waves will put the finishing touches to the perfect, dreamy ambience.
 
- Fishing Trip
Going fishing with local fishermen makes for an excellent tour. Indochina Junk is the first and only company on Halong Bay with this programme.
Our fishing trips create the genuine feeling of being a fisherman on these waters, and make for an exciting and interesting excursion for all tourists.

- Dining in a Cave
After a whole day packed full of activities, we anchor at a secluded harbour where you will enjoy an amazing dinner in your private cave.
Pass through the cave’s mouth and along the candle-lit pathway for the most enchanting of experiences. Allow yourself to be bewitched by the mystical scenery inside.
The dinner will be an unforgettable experience as much for the delicious and beautifully presented food, as for the romantic setting. This is a wonderful occasion, ideal for a honeymoon, wedding anniversary, birthday, or even a special surprise for your loved one. Enjoy, share, relax – it will make your trip even more memorable.
  
- Mangrove Forestation
As part of our ecotourism programme for a responsible environment in Halong Bay, our mangrove forestation project was first initiated by Indochina Junk for the purpose of restoring an area of mangrove that has been reduced by the effects of nature and man. We are helping to create a living environment for the species to provide abundant marine resources for those living in the fishing villages around Halong Bay.
By joining our mangrove forestation tour, visitors have a chance to show their responsibility through practical activities such as planting mangrove trees. A bit of hard work and a lot of fun, join in the activities you never thought you would do in modern life even if you had the time. Join in, and experience a unique experience with us.
