An overview of Halong Bay wooden junks

It is the fact that finding high-quality wooden junk in Halong Bay is really hard at present. The reason for this matter is because of the trend of making steel boats in the Bay. Cruises made by steel are bigger, more stylish, and modern, become really hot for traveling in Halong and Lan Ha Bay which makes many people gradually forget about the existence of wooden junks.

Most of the wooden junks in Halong Bay were launched in the last decade, at the early of cruising services in Halong Bay. There are new boats, of course, but just a very modest number as the steel junks are dominating in the bay right now. If you want to travel Halong Bay in the classic way, a wooden junk must be the best choice. The majority of these boats are budget cruises with 3 – 4-star service standards and you can easily book one for a 2d1n or 3d2n cruise trip at reasonable prices (only from US $120/person). In addition, there are also options for day cruises in Halong Bay which starts from about US $60/person for a 5-hour tour.

There is no worry about the quality of services of those Halong Bay wooden junks as they all have many years of experience in the bay with well-trained staff. Also, you don’t have to concern about the safety of the wooden boats here as all the junk are maintained periodically at least once or twice a year, and only boats which are recognized as meeting the government’s safety standard allowed to travel in the Bay. In addition, although the wooden junks are small, cannot afford too many functions as the steel boats, they still can provide perfectly the comfort full-amenities cabins, delicious meals, and all the must-try activities such as sightseeing, swimming, kayaking, and night squid fishing.

While most of the new steel cruises traveling through Halong to Lan Ha Bay – a new hot travel route these years, wooden junks mostly travel in Halong Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay which means you have 2 main options of itinerary: classic and off-the-beaten-track ones. The classic itinerary is ideally suitable for first-time travelers coming to Halong Bay which allows you to visit the most popular attractions here such as Titop Island, Sung Sot Cave, and Dark & Light Cave. Some most popular cruise names traveling the classic route are Aphrodite Cruise, Paradise Peak Cruise, and Indochina Sails. On the other hand, when you choose the off-the-beaten-track that means you will have a chance to explore the unspoiled beauty of the bay as the cruise will take you to travel deeply from Halong Bay to the remote area of Bai Tu Long Bay. There are many popular wooden junks follow this route that can be mentioned such as Swan Cruise, Paloma Cruise, Emperor Cruise, and Heritage Line Jasmine Cruise.

If you are a fan of classic style and expect a remarkable cruise trip with a rustic wooden boat, just book one of the above cruises, they all are the best junks in Halong Bay and promise for a perfect cruising experience.
