Ha Long Bay includes some 1,600 islands and islets, forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars. It was truly beautiful sailing around this amazing landscape on our private 4 bedroom Junk – just us and the Nanra’s.
We were on one of IndoChina’s Prince Junks – designed after the traditional fishing boats of Halong Bay, only on a slightly smaller scale. The kids and I enjoyed jumping off the top deck into water and relaxing on its deck chairs.
Prince III – Our Junk
The meals on board were superb with lunch when we arrived, dinner and then breakfast and lunch the next day. Unfortunately rain on our first day meant lunch indoors but all had cleared up by dinner time and so dinner was on the outdoors deck.
Sweet & Sour Soup – Fresh Salad
Baby Clams – Drunken Prawns
Sea Bass – Squid in Butter
Meat Dishes with Watermelon and Pumpkin Carved Boat
Our itinerary was to the untouched Bai Tu Long Bay to discover natural beauty and local life. Included was a cave visit, kayaking and a visit to a floating village.
Ha Long Bay is truly a must do experience. Beautiful, relaxing and great family and friend time.
