Very good - Ms.Megan Jean Smith
They really deserve excellence star

The rooms are comfortable. The crew was helpful. We cruised to Bai Tu Long, and as promised, there were few ships apart from the Indochina Junks. The COOK was marvelous. He is a master chef and cooks delicious food. I especially enjoyed his squid pie. Food was ample and tasty in general, with complimentary… More

Amazing experience!

We did a 2D1N tour of the dragon pearl with another family and our children; it was the absolute best! The staff was helpful and friendly, with a great sense of humor.
The scenery of Halong bay is breathtaking, and we loved the kayaking, swimming & cave tour.
The food was probably the best we had eaten in our two-week stay in Vietnam, and there was so much of it!
We highly recommend this tour!

Very good - Ms.Carolyn Wiley
Amazing tour!

What a fantastic tour. The team on board was so kind and friendly. Our room was spotless. The food was incredible, but I am a seafood lover, and seafood for breakfast was too much. We enjoyed swimming on the beach and visiting the fishing village!

Excellent - Ms.Gillian Christina
Best cruise I've been on!

3-day, 2-night Bai Tu Long Bay cruise - excellent from start to finish. The small boat with only 20 passengers, fun activities, a lovely cabin, and pretty good food. Our guide was knowledgeable and accommodating. The crew was all very kind and helpful. We highly recommend it!

Excellent - Ms.Aleksandra Ostojic
A breathtaking experience to Bai Tu Long Bay.!

The Indochina Dragon Pearl junk was an incredible experience. We booked the 2-day, 1-night experience, which has been an absolute highlight of our trip to North Vietnam.

The views were breathtaking, and we enjoyed traveling to Bai Tu Long bay. The karst formations are beyond words!

Ask a Question

Hello! If I have not yet booked my stay in Hanoi Old Quarter, can I add the address for the pick-up and drop-off after booking the cruise on a later stage? For the Dragon Pearl cruise (2days/1night) I see that there is free cancellation but in the policy it says that before 15 days of departure, if I cancel the trip, I'm charged with the 10% of the total fee. Which is correct?

@Georgia Papadimitriou:

This cruise free charge if you cancel 21 days ahead. between 21 - 16 days: 10%. You can add the transfer later.

Could you please tell me what hotels you pick up from Hanoi for your Dragon cruise.I normally stay in hostels and was thinking of using one before the start of the trip.


If you book transfer we can pick you up between 8:00 - 8:30 at your adress. In-case hostel is hard to access you can find the hotel near by for pick up point.
