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 rubbish 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.

Cabin & Suites

The boat 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 stay.
