About Dragon Pearl Junk

Dragon's Pearl Junk is the more extensive junk boat available to groups in the Indochina Junk family. The three Dragon's Pearl boats were fashioned after old-school Chinese junks that used to sail.

Dragon's Pearl offers an off-the-beaten-path cruise trip to Bai Tu Long Bay with a variety of exciting activities, much like all the other boats in Indochina Junk's fleet. Up to the very last second of your journey, our staff makes every effort to make sure you are entirely happy.

This traditional junk boat is a perfect mid-range cruise for business incentive groups or gatherings with excellent attendance (up to 20 persons). Alternatively, reserve a spot and make new acquaintances while cruising the bay.

Facilities & Deck Plan

This mid-range cruise has 3 decks, 10 cabins, and indoor and outdoor dining spaces. Each cabin is tastefully furnished in a rustic design and equipped with contemporary conveniences for a pleasant overnight stay:

On the first deck, there are 04 Twin cabins and 02 Double cabins with a size 11m2. 

The second deck is where the other 04 Double Cabins and the indoor dining area are located.

The third deck features a sundeck for a relaxation area and an outdoor dining place. 

In spite of the Dragon Pearl Junk Cruise is a little bit small, it still applied necessary amenities to provide guests with the best experience.

Dining area

It was meticulously designed with teak and oak, providing a warm and inviting atmosphere. With a seating capacity of 36 chairs, this space was ideal for intimate candlelight dinners as well as enjoyable family meals.


There are 02 bars available on the ship. One is located inside the indoor dining room, while the other is situated on the sundeck, accommodating up to 25 guests. These bars offer a wide selection of cocktails, liquor, wines, and other beverages, ensuring a delightful drinking experience for passengers.


The sundeck, situated on the top deck of the ship, offers a breathtaking vantage point to admire the bay during dusk and spend quality time with friends. The sundeck features handcrafted teak and wood furnishings, creating a cozy and inviting ambiance. Whether you choose to relax or socialize, the sundeck provides the perfect setting for both.

3 day/2 night cruise to Halong Bay

We took a three-day, two-night cruise on Dragon Pearl 2. This was the best decision we made. There were just 18 of us. We were the only group kayaking, swimming, and barbecuing on the beach.
We booked through Best Price Travel, and our consultant, My Uyen, was extremely helpful in making the necessary travel arrangements. I would definitely book with them again.
